Spider (Thread) Veins - Facial

At Ramsay, we offer a range of treatment options for thread (spider) veins. Your consultant will advise on the best option for your individual needs.

Short wave diathermy, laser or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are all effective treatments for facial thread (spider) veins depending on their size. Short wave diathermy is very effective for spider veins (spider naevi) and the larger facial thread veins due to aging and sun exposure whereas laser and IPL are best for the tiny diffuse veins such as seen in patients with Rosacea.

We offer convenient appointments for consultation and treatment of your thread (spider) veins so you can have them removed without waiting. This treatment is not available on the NHS for cosmetic reasons. Ramsay offers thread (spider) vein treatment for both cosmetic and medical reasons. For thread veins due to a condition such as Rosacea it is always best to consult with a dermatologist before undergoing any treatment.

Our qualified doctors are highly experienced in performing thread (spider) vein removal procedures so you can rest assured you’re in safe and reliable hands.
