by | Jul 23, 2021 | Vein Clinic

Understandably, having thread veins in your skin might stop you from feeling confident in wearing an outfit you really want or even going outside. Yes, thread veins can break our confidence completely because we just don’t like how it looks in our bodies.

Thankfully, there are solutions to your problems. Thread veins can be treated and can even disappear from your skin with the right thread vein treatments.

Treatments to Getting Rid Of Thread Veins

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is one of the best methods to get rid of the undesired thread veins. This procedure involves injecting a chemical solution to your veins, which helps to scar and close those veins and then reroute them through healthier veins.

After a few weeks, you will see how the thread veins have faded. However, it is important to mention that it might be necessary to inject the veins again or even more times.

You need to know  that this method might have side effects such as:

  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Skin color changes in the treated area

Even if this method looks like it has the most potential to eliminate your thread veins, you need to know if you are eligible for this method. You are not eligible if:

  • You are pregnant
  • You are breastfeeding
  • You are bedridden
  • You cannot be physically active
  • You had a blood clot in the past
  • You are allergic to the sclerotherapy solution

Laser Surgery

Another thread vein treatment method you have is laser surgery. This method does not require needles or incisions because it works with strong bursts of light. Furthermore, it is a less effective method than sclerotherapy.

The procedure for the laser surgery is done through strong bursts of light into the vein, which for some minutes starts making the veins fade, and later on, they disappear completely.

Similar to sclerotherapy, laser surgery has side effects such as:

  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Swelling in the treated area

Other Treatments

Sclerotherapy and laser surgery are not the only two methods to go with when trying to get rid of thread veins. Some other methods don’t require hospitalization, major surgery, or extended recovery times. 

These new techniques are:

  • Endovenous laser thermal ablation (EVLA)
  • Radiofrequency ablation thermal ablation (RF)
  • Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy
  • Visually guided sclerotherapy
