Thread or spider veins are networks of small, damaged veins that appear on the legs or face. They are usually painless but may sometimes cause itching or a burning sensation.

Thread Vein Removal, Birmingham

Thread or spider veins are networks of small, damaged veins that appear on the legs or face. They are usually painless but may sometimes cause itching or a burning sensation.

If you have thread veins, it’s important to have your legs examined properly and to have an ultrasound scan before treatment. This is because thread veins are often associated with hidden varicose veins. Finding and treating varicose veins makes treating thread veins much more effective.

Premier Veins offers expert varicose and thread vein removal in Birmingham, Droitwich, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield. We create your treatment plan in consultation with you, based on a full discussion of your medical history, a clinical examination and non-invasive investigations if appropriate.

I highly recommend Premier Veins, from start to finish Mr Claridge and his team were fantastic. I have suffered with pain full varicose veins and varicose eczema for years. The difference in my legs just a few months after treatment is incredible. No more sore, swollen, itchy legs! And the after care was plan was easy to follow

Could not recommend Premier Veins enough. From start to finish they have been amazing, especially after some issues with my insurance company. Sue and Ruth were both extremely helpful. I told Mr Adam that I was particularly nervous about the procedure and he did everything he could to keep me calm, his nurse was also superb. 6 weeks after the procedure I can already see the results and can’t wait for things to fully heal.

I booked an appointment for my father to see Mr Adam for a second opinion and some reassurance about his health. I cannot recommend Mr Adam enough he is a lovely man who listened, took time to explain everything to my father who left completely reassured. Fantastic service from booking through to consultation.

Recently had an appointment with Mr Adam for a varicose problem needing a scan . Mr Adam was able to scan but suggested it was not a vascular problem leading to a very prompt correct diagnosis that cleared up a long standing issue in just a few days . Cannot fault the care received ,- this was my 84 year old father and he came out having been treated extremely well ( and kindly!! ) Communication was excellent , very quick appointment . Highly recommend .

My experience with Premier Veins was top rate. The clinic is comfortable and well organised despite restrictions placed on everywhere by COVID. It was easy to book and appointments were confirmed via email. A written summary was posted to me.The team I met, Martin Claridge and Gareth, were welcolming, reassuring and extremely professional. I was put at ease and the treatment was completed in two sessions of around an hour each. There was only mild discomfort during the procedures and everything was explained in detail. My varicose veins are completely healed. I can thoroughly recomend Premier Veins.

What causes thread veins?

Thread veins in the leg occur when the one-way valves in the veins stop working effectively. Blood usually travels up through these valves toward the heart, but in damaged or weakened veins, blood travels backwards and pools.

What treatments do you offer?

Our Consultants offer gold-standard treatments for thread and varicose veins in the legs. We use minimally invasive procedures including veinlite transilluminated microsclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy.  You’ll probably need a course of treatments to achieve the best results.
