Thread Vein Removal (Sclerotherapy & Laser)

Thread Vein Removal (Sclerotherapy & Laser)

[Thread vein removal - Explained]

Thread veins are extremely common and sometimes embarrassing, mostly affecting the face, body and legs.

The causes of thread veins are unknown although they may be caused by changes in temperature, smoking, hormonal changes, alcohol and prolonged standing as well as being a possible inherited condition.

[before and after treatment]


  • At The Harley Medical Group, we offer both the non surgical techniques of Sclerotherapy and Laser, to combat thread veins.
  • Thread vein treatment is performed quickly, within 30 to 45 minutes, yielding complete results after around 4 or 5 sessions.
  • There is no downtime, and it is faster and more effective than other methods.

Laser and IPL - thread vein removal treatments

Lasers and IPL can be used to remove thread veins on the face, body and legs. Laser treatments will remove fine and large thread veins quickly and effectively and two or three sessions is usually all that is needed to leave your skin feeling smooth and blemish-free. This is a non invasive treatment for veins 1-3 mm in size. We generally recommend on average 5 treatments.

Sclerotherapy - thread vein removal treatments

Sclerotherapy is also effective in removing thread veins from the body and legs - this is a relatively simple non surgical treatment which only takes 30-40 minutes. A very fine needle is used to inject a solution into the vein, which causes it to perish and, over a course of treatments, disappear completely. The number of treatment sessions depends on how many areas need to be treated but we generally recommend on average 4 treatments.
