Thread Veins

Thread veins are tiny veins on the legs and face. They don’t require medical attention but can look unsightly.

 

 Causes of Thread Veins

  • Excess sun exposure
  • Pregnancy
  • Oestrogen supplements – for example, the contraceptive pill or HRT(Hormone Replacement Therapy)
  • Hereditary factors.
  • Aging – as we get older the skin loses collagen and the subcutaneous fat becomes thinner, making the veins stand out.
  • Rosacea, a condition that can occur as a result of overuse of steroid creams.
  • In rare occasions they can be a sign of thyroid disorder – ask for a blood test to check your levels
