Thread Vein Removal London

Thread Vein Removal Treatment | Regents Park Aesthetics

What is Thread Vein Removal and how does it work?

Thread veins (Also known as spider veins, capillary veins or broken veins) are purple or blue coloured prominent veins in the skin seen most commonly in the legs. They are harmless but are sometimes uncomfortable and may be very unsightly.  The cause of thread veins is often unknown but can be common after pregnancy, with hormone changes or if you have a job where you stand or sit for long periods.

Thread vein removal (known as Sclerotherapy)  is a safe and well established treatment for unsightly thread veins or spider veins  on the legs and is considered to be the gold standard treatment available. Although there are a number of alternative treatments, it remains the most reliably successful of them all, with an improvement in their appearance of 60 – 80%.

It is not suitable for patients who have varicose veins (lumpy, wriggly veins) or for facial veins.

What happens during Thread Vein Treatment?

All treatments include a comprehensive assessment of your veins using our special vein light and a Doppler ultrasound assessment. We will discuss the treatment options with you and take photographs of the area to be treated.

A special solution is injected into the thread vein with a very tiny needle. The injection is very superficial into the vein, causing the lining of the vein to swell and become sticky. This then causes the thread vein to shrink and disappear permanently. Compression is then applied to close the veins for 1-2 weeks to aid the healing process.

Results from thread vein treatment are visible after just one treatment but  can vary considerably from one person to another. You may need up to 4 treatments at 3 month intervals.

The thread veins that are successfully treated are gone for good, but the treatment cannot prevent new veins appearing in the future.

Does Thread Vein Treatment hurt?

This is not a painful treatment, the needles used are tiny and the injections are very superficial. You may experience some prickling and itching after treatment for a few hours, these symptoms can be relieved with anti-histamines which can be purchased over the counter in supermarkets and pharmacies.

What are the side effects of Thread Vein Treatment?

The thread veins will initially improve but then may look worse for a few days afterwards due to the effect of the injection. You may experience some tingling and itching in the area treated and the leg may have an aching sensation. We recommend the use of compression sock to improve the healing process and speed up the results of thread vein treatment.

The results will start to show after a few weeks and repeat thread vein treatment can be done after around 12 weeks.

Wow such a wonderful clinic! Lovely and clean and not to mention the staff who are so professional and polite.I have been visiting the clinic for over six months now and have had regular Hydrafacials with the most incredible therapist Audrey. She works wonders on my face, provides me with expert skincare advice and she makes me feel so comfortable in her care. My skin glows and feels amazing and is noticed by others! I highly recommend Regents Park Aesthetics, thank you Audrey!July 2024Fast forward to 2 years later and I am now seeing SK.

MoleGate.For many years I contemplated having a mole on my face removed as it was continuing to grow larger. Over a time span of approximately ten years I spoke with many dermatologists who gave me two options: One, having It surgically removed. I was advised that they would have to go deep to get the root and it would require a stitch. The stitch would then pull my upper lip up slightly on that side of my face (not ideal). Two, having it sliced off, leaving a white patch in its place, which I was told that it would slowly fade over the years (not ideal).When I went to Regent Park Aesthetics, Kay offered me a solution I had never heard of before. She recommended using a laser-type pen to slowly burn it off at surface level, then only going deep at the root to ensure it wouldn’t grow back. She showed me before and after photos of previous clients. I immediately signed up! To say I am beyond pleased with the results is an understatement. I am forever a grateful to Kay and Regents Park Aesthetics. If you are thinking about having an unwanted mole removed, my recommendation is DO IT!!!

I have been to many clinics and there is none that is as good as Regent’s Park aesthetic's. I trust kay implicitly with my face and she offers great council when considering treatments and pushes back on anything that will make you look unnatural and will not do anything you request to make a profit. I will never go to another clinic again they are the best in London.

I recently had the PRF and microneedling treatment, and I must say, the results have left me beaming. From start to finish, the process was not only comfortable but also surprisingly pain-free, thanks to the expertise of Magda.Magda, guided me through each step with care and precision. Despite my fear of needles, she made the entire experience a breeze. From drawing my blood to administering the injections, she ensured my comfort at every moment, without any fuss or discomfort.Fast forward seven days, and the results speak for themselves. My face is positively radiant, emitting a healthy glow that has garnered compliments from everyone around me. Not only do I look rejuvenated, but I also feel a newfound sense of confidence that is truly empowering.I cannot thank Magda enough for her exceptional work and dedication to her craft. Her expertise, coupled with her genuine concern for her clients' well-being, sets her apart in the field of skincare. Without a doubt, I will be returning for future treatments, knowing that I am in the best hands possible.
