Q7. How do you treat thread veins?

A7. There are several options open to you, none which require surgery, general anaesthetic or a hospital stay.

These include minimally invasive procedures such as intense pulsed light treatment, laser therapy and microsclerotherapy. These are often used to treat varicose veins and give great results.

Another treatment is electrolysis which is often used to remove excess hair but has proved to be effective at treating thread veins.

There are few things you can do at home which involve changes to your lifestyle. If you are a smoker then stop smoking as this can cause high blood pressure which puts a strain on your veins. Reduce your alcohol intake if you drink more than the recommended amounts.

Take regular exercise and follow a healthy diet.

Another option is to use a Vitamin K based product or a camouflage cream.
