Thread veins or spider veins are the little blue, purple or red veins that are visible just underneath the skin. Whilst they are not medically dangerous, they are very unpopular, especially with women, because they look so unsightly.
A lot of women feel very self-conscious about their thread veins – to the extent that they wont go out in public in knee length shorts or skirts, and feel embarrassed about wearing swimming costumes.
This is a pity, because thread veins can be treated quite effectively by a simple procedure that can be done in the doctors consulting room.
