Thread Vein Treatment In Kent With Canterbury Skin And Laser Clinic

We’re in midst of summer and the weather is warmer, the days are longer and we get to escape the hustle and bustle of our working lives for a getaway somewhere sunny. However, all of these positives can be eclipsed if you are suffering with unwanted and prominent veins in your legs. Summer can be a nightmare for many sufferers, as it means a constant struggle to find seasonal appropriate attire that won’t leave them feeling uncomfortable or on show. This is an issue that can easily be eradicated with the help of thread vein treatment in Kent, thanks to Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.

When tackling the issue of unwanted thread veins in the legs there are two main methods of treatment, laser and sclerotherapy treatment. These are the two thread vein treatments that Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic provides, and they work effectively as both single treatments or in conjunction with each other.


Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that aims to vastly improve the look of unflattering veins within the legs and other areas of the body by effectively closing the prominent veins, resulting in a less visible appearance. Sclerotherapy achieves this by injecting a sclerosing agent into the vein through a microneedle, which effectively causes the vein walls to stick and eventually close.

Sclerotherapy is a great form of thread vein treatment for those looking for a quick and convenient solution. The treatment can be performed in just 30 minutes and requires little recovery time, making it the perfect time-efficient fix before a special occasion or holiday,” said Dr. Alice Hudson-Peacock, a cosmetic doctor at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.

Following treatment the site of injection will be covered for 3 days. After the wrappings have been removed, patients may still notice visible bruising and swelling to the treated veins. This usually subsides within a week or two. The veins will continue to fade during the healing period, and can be expected to improve up to 8 weeks following treatment.

Laser Treatment

Alternatively, the second thread vein treatment that Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers is laser treatment. This method of treatment works by penetrating the vein with beams of light energy that are matched to a target colour (such as the red of the thread vein). This allows the energy to effectively target the unwanted veins, whilst minimising the absorption made by the surrounding skin. The laser delivers controlled energy pulses which heat the veins and effectively close the unwanted veins, forcing them to collapse. The veins are then dissolved and removed by the body’s immune system over several weeks following treatment.

“The great thing about laser treatment for thread veins is that it gives patients a longer term solution to their unwanted veins. Thanks to the treatment’s vein collapsing feature, patients can effectively remove the prominent vein through the body’s immune system. This is a huge benefit for many patients as it means they can enjoy their results without fear of the vein resurfacing,” said Dr. Hudson-Peacock.
