A lot of people suffer from leg thread veins, we say, suffer no more!
At Good Skin Days we have an expert practitioner who specialises in the treatment of leg thread veins. Leg thread veins are small ‘broken’ capillaries that occur in both men and women. They are caused as a result of pregnancy, hormonal changes, and occupational factors such as excessive standing, and also may be hereditary. The vessels can be unsightly and cause dull aching in the legs.
what do we do?
At Good Skin Days our specialist practitioner will assess your legs during a free of charge consultation. She has the experience and knowledge to assess whether you may need to see your GP first, this would be necessary if you have varicose veins that require surgical intervention.
Usually it’s straight forward and you can go ahead with your first treatment. At Good Skin Days our practitioner uses a treatment called micro-sclerotherapy to treat this concern. A tiny needle is inserted into the vessel. The capillary is injected with a solution of strong sterile saline which irritates the lining which irritates the lining of the vessel causing it to swell and stick together. The vessel shrinks and is absorbed in the tissue. The vessels fade from view. It is only possible to treat the small capillaries not the larger blue vessels.
