Thread Veins

21St January 2021 | Thread Veins

What are Thread Veins?

Thread veins or broken red veins are small unsightly superficial red, purple or blue veins that occur around the nose and across the cheekbones and chin, on legs or in fact anywhere on the body.  These broken veins appear when the vein dilates and become larger so they are visible through the transparency of the skin. Thread veins are extremely common and completely harmless, but sometimes can be embarrassing.


What causes Thread Veins

Thread veins can be more visibly ageing than lines and wrinkles, leading many people to take action to remove them. These are very common, especially in people in their 40s, 50s and 60s. Almost all women will experience thread veins at some point in their life and they are usually associated with underlying vein problems.

The causes of thread veins are unknown although they may be caused by changes in temperature, damage from sun exposure, smoking, hormonal changes, alcohol and prolonged standing as well as being a possible inherited condition.
