Costs & Treatment Information
Thread veins are small blood vessels which are visible through the skin. These are a smaller version of varicose veins and are closer to the surface of the skin. They most commonly occur on thighs, calves, and ankles and look like small wiggly lines, which is why they are often referred to as spider veins.
As we age, our skin thins which can make these veins more visible and can cause people to be self-conscious about their appearance. For cosmetic reasons, people choose to have these removed.
Wart removal is performed by our GPs and facial surgeons using cryotherapy and excision.

We use the Hyfrecator to remove thread veins. The Hyfrecator has a needle that is inserted just under the skin and ‘burns’ the vein to remove it. You may require multiple treatments for the desired effect. This methodology is used for spider veins and is a common form of treatment for unwanted skin lesions such as warts, moles or skin tags.
