Thread Veins

The appearance of thread-like veins on the legs and body can be a main contributor to lowered self-esteem.

Thread veins | Meyer Clinic

Corrective Treatment

We offer safe and effective corrective treatment to reduce the appearance of unsightly veins across the whole body. During consultation, our specialists will assess the type of problem veins the client has and where they are situated on the body to determine the most suitable treatment. Depending on the extent and location of the thread veins, whether they are isolated or in clusters, treatment can include:

  • ELOS Skin Rejuvenation Advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology
  • Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP), an electrolysis treatment particularly effective on isolated veins.
  • Microsclerotherapy, a series of fine needling injections into the veins

Each thread vein treatment is different, and our specialist practitioners will assess the degree of treatment you will need at your initial consultation.

There is no cure for thread veins. Although our treatments do not prevent the development of new spider veins, the removal of existing veins can dramatically improve the appearance of the affected area, providing a more youthful, healthy look and an even colour-pattern to the skin.


Skin Rejuvenation Advanced (SRA) uses combined energies to effectively reduce the appearance of problem veins on the legs and face. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and electrical energies precisely target and heat the unwanted vein while protecting the surrounding skin in a non-invasive manner to restore skin to a more youthful state. It can also resolve broken capillaries and small spider veins that can often make a person feel self-conscious about their appearance. SRA is a fast and effective treatment with little to no downtime, with results that are longer lasting and aesthetically rewarding.

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) is an advanced electrolysis that can often produce immediate results in the removal of thread veins. The treatment works by placing a tiny pre-sterilised probe onto the surface of the skin which releases a burst of radio frequency energy in the form of heat for a quick second drying out the blood flow. Performed by our skilled aesthetic therapists electrolysis thread vein removal is safe and effective. Depending on the number of thread veins, several sessions might be needed to achieve the required result.

At Meyer Clinic, microsclerotherapy is carried out under the direction of our experienced medical practitioner Dr Meyer. The treatment involves a special chemical ‘sclerosing’ solution injected directly into the problem veins. This empties the vein of blood and causes the walls of the vein to collapse and stick together. Over time, the veins ultimately disappear. Thread veins serve no purpose, as they are incapable of delivering blood effectively. Several sessions may be needed depending on the extent of the thread veins.
