What are thread veins?

Most people will be aware of thread veins. Mainly due to how common thread veins are, affecting around 80% of adults. Thread veins are small blood vessels in the most superficial layer of the skin (the dermis) which have become dilated and visible. Thread veins most commonly appeaer on your legs or face, but you can find them on the parts of your body that have underlining vein problems.   

Why do people get thread veins?

Thread veins often make us feel very self-conscious.  They are damaged veins and broken capillaries just below the skin. As you age, your skin loses collagen and becomes thinner, so when veins expand they become visible through your skin. Thread veins are extremely common in men and women. They are often caused by long-term sun exposure, pregnancy, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods.  They are also linked to rosacea, a common red rash or red patches of skin around inflammed skin. These usually develop as we age.
