Treatment for the removal of spider veins on the nose, administered by a qualified practitioner.
While spider veins on the nose are generally harmless and are unlikely to cause pain, for some they can be unsightly and a cause for concern. The good news is, there is treatment available to remove thread veins on the nose in a safe and pain-free way. But first, let's find out what thread veins are and why some people have them.
Spider veins, also known as thread veins on the nose, are small, dilated blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. Spider veins are medically known as ‘telangiectasia’ and are often red or blue in colour resembling the legs of a spider, hence the name ‘spider veins’. Thread veins can be visible on various parts of the body, including the nose and face.
Thread veins can be prominent on the nose and can appear as fine, branching lines or clusters of tiny blood vessels. They can be caused by a variety of different factors, including:
You are more likely to experience spider veins on the nose if you have a family history of thread veins or other vascular conditions.
Our skin becomes thinner and less elastic as we age, meaning spider veins are likely to become more visible on our skin, especially our face and nose.
The blood vessel walls can get weaker when exposed to the sun, which can contribute to the development of thread veins on the nose.
Trauma to the nose or facial area can damage blood vessels which can increase the chances of spider veins appearing.
Fluctuations in hormones, typically in pregnancy or menopause can contribute to the development of spider veins.
Here at UK Vein Clinic, we only use the most effective, safest methods for removing thread veins on the nose. Veinwave is a specialist treatment which uses ‘thermal coagulation’ - a process that collapses and seals the damaged veins so that they can be naturally reabsorbed back into the body. Veinwave, also known as ‘Thermavein’ is a non-invasive method that involves targeting heat to seal and remove spider veins on the nose but is not a type of laser therapy.

3. Your spider veins on your nose will be treated using a specialist technology called Veinwave. This is a pain-free, effective way of removing thread veins on the nose. On average, the treatment appointment should take around 30 minutes.
4. Depending on how your spider veins have responded to treatment, you may need to return for further removal sessions - we recommend a minimum of 2-4 treatments for the best results depending on the severity and number of thread veins being treated.

Unfortunately, it is not entirely possible to prevent the development of spider veins on your nose, but you can do things like using sun protection, living a healthy lifestyle and using gentle skincare to minimise the risk. Ultimately, some factors like genetics and ageing can still play a role in the development of spider veins on your nose.
The procedure for thread vein removal is virtually painless, as Veinwave uses a fine needle to target affected veins, causing little to no pain (similar to a vaccination or hair being pulled).
While the treated spider veins are effectively removed, new ones might develop over time due to various factors we’ve mentioned above. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and sun protection can help prolong the results.
Results for spider vein removal is usually gradual, with improvements becoming noticeable over a period of several weeks. Patience is important, as the body needs time to reabsorb the treated blood vessels.
The UK Vein Clinic charges £135 for an initial consultation and £395 per treatment session for new patients. Existing patients pay £300 per treatment session. Spider veins may require 3-4 treatment sessions, while very fine veins may only need one. See more information on our thread vein removal prices.
