Thread veins – a common problem…
If you’re wondering what you did to deserve your thread veins, don’t: around half of adults in the country have them in some form or other. There’s probably very little you could have done to avoid them, particularly as they’re believed to be, at least in part, hereditary. Women are more likely to get them and hormonal changes may play a role in their formation, with puberty, birth control pills, menopause and hormone therapy seeming to increase the risk.
Whatever the cause of their appearance, you may be tired of looking at them on your legs, face, or elsewhere on your body. Thread veins are also known as spider veins for good reason, as their pattern extends in a spidery scrawl across the affected area. They can feel unsightly, cause some aches and itches and even limit your exposure to sunlight (should you be lucky enough to experience any here!)
…With a proven solution
Fortunately, we can help you get rid of them. Depending on the severity of the condition, there are various treatments available to you at Dundrum Clinic. For larger thread veins, the most effective treatment is our specialised laser treatment system. The laser emits a light which causes each thread vein to break up and disappear. Whether you’re suffering from thread veins, broken veins, red veins or dilated capillaries, we have the technology to treat them.
If you’d like more information about thread vein removal, get in touch with our fully trained practitioners. A professional, initial consultation costs just €20 – refunded in full should you choose to take up the treatment here at Dundrum Clinic.
