Leg Veins

Thread veins can be both unsightly and uncomfortable. At Shropshire Skin Clinic we treat thread veins on the legs with microsclerotherapy, intense pulsed light or laser. A combination of these may be used to achieve the optimum result.

Compression stockings are useful in reducing the discomfort associated with varicose and thread veins. They will also reduce the development of new thread veins and recurrence of previously treated thread veins. We are stockists of the Sigvaris range of compression hosiery which we believe to be the best in both appearance and function.

Patients with significant underlying varicose veins generally need further investigation with a Duplex ultrasound scan and then surgery or 'Venus' treatment. If underlying varicose veins are not treated the response to thread vein treatment is unlikely to be satisfactory. If varicose veins are detected during assessment at Shropshire Skin Clinic a Duplex ultrasound scan can be arranged at a local private hospital and referral to a consultant vascular surgeon with an interest and expertise in these procedures can be made.

Thread veins are small dilated blood vessels. They are extremely common and particularly likely to develop in patients with varicose veins or a history of thrombosis or pregnancy. The problem often runs in families.
