Thread veins are those small veins in the skin which look like bluish, purple or red lines being also called “spider veins”. There are also varicose veins which are also bluish veins but they have a bumpy-like structure, being visible and palpable through the skin. These thread veins become visible on your skin once you get older because your skin gets thinner and the blood vessels start to get thicker and thus, more visible, but there are also other reasons that can influence the appearance of leg and body thread veins such as pregnancy, heredity, postmenopausal hormonal changes, obesity and even your job, if it involves a lot of standing up.
Despite the fact that people avoid talking about them, they are very common and most people have them. The reasons for which they should be removed are not entirely based on aesthetics. The leg veins can be painful and can even start bleeding at a certain point leading to thrombophlebitis, they can make your feet feel heavy and can even include tiredness, burning or tingling sensations. What you should also know is the fact that they develop more in women than in men and keep in mind that they do increase in number with age, but for people in Birmingham, this is no longer an issue.
Due to the fact that thread veins are so common, we at the Renew Skin and Health Clinic are always looking for methods to make your body look flawlessly with less pain, non-invasive methods and minimal scarring. At first, there was the micro-sclerotherapy and Laser treatment for the legs and body thread veins. Then there was Radiofrequency, a major leap and now, a new technique has been developed with the aid of the TC3000 device. This can treat not only varicose veins or telangiectasia but also rosacea and petechia. With its help you will get immediate and permanent results without any side effects.
This treatment is quick and non-invasive. In a session of about 10-15 minutes it can treat spider veins or thread veins on the legs and body with a length of 50 up to 80 cm. As stated before, the patient can almost immediately go back to his/her normal routine and more importantly than with other procedures, you obtain immediate and permanent results, it can be also used on other sensitive parts from your body where other procedures can't, such as the ankles and back of the knees, it is suitable for all skin types, relatively painless, and no compressions stockings are needed. Moreover it does not have any side-effects such as depigmentation, allergic reactions, burns or necrosis due to the fact that it uses a revolutionary unipolar thermo coagulation technology which heats up the thread veins and makes it coagulate with the help of an insulated needle which will remove the risk of damaging the epidermis and surrounding tissue. Our Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialist will also recommend you a vitamin K oxidant cream for after the leg and body thread vein treatment.
