Your Guide To Non-Invasive Vein Removal

As the winter chill gives way to the warmer days of spring, we’re all tempted to start shedding the layers and bare some skin. But fear of showing varicose veins might put a dampener on your spring and summer outfit ideas. Vein removal could be the answer.

At Dr Sobia Medispa, we understand visible veins on your arms, legs, and body can make you feel self-conscious. Luckily, you don’t have to rely on surgical procedures to remove these troublesome veins. Instead, there are non-surgical vein removal treatments available to give you a swift and efficient solution. You could be saying goodbye to spider or varicose veins in less than 30 minutes!

What Causes More Obvious Veins?

What exactly are varicose and spider veins, and how do you know if they’re treatable? There are two main types of visible veins, and both can often be treated with non-invasive removal options. 

Varicose veins

Varicose veins are typically the variety that cause the most problems, as they are enlarged, swollen veins that are often blue or dark purple. In some cases, they can even cause discomfort or a throbbing sensation. These veins occur when faulty valves in minor veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction. This doesn’t normally affect your health but leads to pooling and large varicose veins that won’t go away on their own.

Spider (or thread) veins

Spider veins are web-like veins that most often appear close to your skin’s surface. They don’t usually cause any health concerns, but they can be in obvious contrast to your skin as they are normally blue or purple in colour. Genetics, ageing and hormonal changes are commonly to blame for spider veins.

Lifestyle And Your Veins

Vein removal treatments from a professional clinician can totally transform the way you see your body, but it’s also essential to consider lifestyle factors that contribute to your vein health. Maintaining a healthy weight, including regular activity in your schedule, and avoiding prolonged periods of standing or sitting can all make a difference to your overall vein health.

One especially important tip for healthy veins is to stay hydrated. Dehydration, even slight dehydration, can affect your blood circulation and make it more likely that you’ll develop or worsen vein issues. And don’t forget that elevating your legs when resting can even help to prevent the onset of problems like varicose and spider veins altogether.

Laser Vein Removal For Spider Veins

Laser vein removal is a modern, non-surgical procedure designed specifically for getting rid of spider veins or thread veins. 

This treatment works by using a focused laser beam directly on the targeted area. The heat created by the laser causes the vein to collapse, and over time, your body will naturally eliminate and process the damaged vein. This leaves your skin satisfyingly clear and vein-free.

Sclerotherapy Vein Removal For Varicose Veins

Sclerotherapy is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment similar to laser vein removal in that it targets and eliminates troublesome veins. However, instead of using the heat of a laser, this treatment utilises liquid injections.

During sclerotherapy, a specifically formulated liquid is injected directly into your affected veins. This safe solution irritates the lining of the vein, forcing it to swell and adhere together. Over time, the treated veins will become scar tissue and finally fade away. Your body diverts blood flow to healthier veins, and you can dress confidently without hiding unsightly veins.

Is Vein Removal Effective?

Professional vein removal is extremely effective. You can enjoy a noticeable difference after the first treatment alone. But be aware that it might be necessary for you to have a customised course of treatments to completely get rid of visible veins. 

Fast Results

Both the laser and sclerotherapy treatments can give you visible and impressive results from one session. However, your result and treatment will depend on the severity of the affected veins, and your practitioner might recommend a specific number of sessions to ensure complete removal.

Low Pain

One of the reasons non-invasive vein removal is so popular is because of the minimal discomfort of the treatments. Patients typically experience very mild sensations during treatments, with incredible results that give them back their confidence.

No Downtime

With no downtime required for vein removal treatments, you won’t need to put your life or plans on hold. While compression stockings may be recommended for a better result, and you will be advised to avoid strenuous activity for a few weeks, your normal routine shouldn’t be affected.

Treat Any Area

With non-invasive vein removal, there is no restriction to areas that can be treated safely. Whether it’s your legs, face or any other body part, these treatments can be tailored to target your specific problem areas.


Many treatments offer long-term solutions to cosmetic problems; vein removal is permanent! Once the veins are effectively treated and removed, they are gone for good.

Goodbye, Varicose Veins…

There’s no reason you should have to live with uncomfortable or visible veins. With laser thread vein removal and sclerotherapy for varicose veins, you can say goodbye to those veins with a quick, painless, permanent, non-surgical treatment.
