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.

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.
