Thread Veins (Spider Vein) Treatments in Cheshire
As individuals age, the prominence of thread veins, also called spider or broken veins, becomes more noticeable, especially in the lower limbs. While these thread veins are benign and typically not harmful, they can detract from the skin’s aesthetics.

Our state-of-the-art thread vein removal treatments are accessible across various Healthcare Commission-endorsed locations, notably in Cheshire, Chester, North Wales, Manchester, Warrington, Wirral, and Liverpool.
Utilising the latest techniques, patients with thread veins in Cheshire and surrounding areas can expect a swift outpatient procedure, typically completed in under an hour.
What are Thread Veins?
Thread veins manifest due to circulatory system anomalies. A series of one-way valves in healthy veins ensure blood flows towards the heart. However, when these valves falter, blood pools, making the vein visibly twisted on the skin’s surface. Factors contributing to thread veins include:
- Drinking alcohol excessively
- Trauma to the skin or extremities
- Excessive temperature changes
- Hormonal changes due to pregnancy or menopause
- Normal ageing
- Genetic predisposition
Available Thread Vein Treatments in Cheshire
Treatment options available for the treatment of thread veins include:
Microsclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical solution, causing the vein walls to bond, effectively halting blood flow.
As a result, the body rechannels the blood to deeper veins while absorbing the treated vein. Though effective, it might necessitate multiple sessions for comprehensive removal.
Post-treatment, patients can experience variable bruising durations, with more pronounced cases leading to a dark brown hue that may last a year. To expedite recovery, wearing medical compression stockings is advised.
A single treatment will remove 60-70 per cent of the veins. A patient must then wait for bruising to fade before undergoing additional treatment.
Thread Vein Treatment Aftercare
After undergoing treatment in Cheshire, follow these post-care guidelines:
- It can be helpful to soothe the skin with Aloe Vera gel.
- Avoid using any other perfumed creams, moisturisers or oils.
- Avoid prolonged contact with sunlight.
- Avoid exposure to excessive hot or cold temperatures. This includes ice and hot or cold baths or showers.
Prevention of Thread Veins
Although entirely preventing thread veins is challenging, specific lifestyle changes can minimise their onset or severity. Regular leg exercises, optimal weight, and periodic leg movements during prolonged sitting or standing are beneficial.
Thread Vein Recurrence
Even with effective treatments, the emergence of new veins is plausible. Subsequent treatments might be needed for further occurrences. However, this doesn’t imply the inefficacy of prior therapies.
