    Compensation for thread vain removal injury

    Compensation for thread vain removal injury

    Thread veins are often known as ‘spider veins’ and are very fine blood vessels visible under the skin. They can be found in many areas of the body but most commonly in the face and legs. The underlying cause of thread veins is unknown but it is thought that ageing, hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy), prolonged standing and genetic predisposition can result in the condition. Many patients with varicose veins often suffer from thread veins and treatment is ineffective unless the varicose veins are treated beforehand. Treatment for thread vain removal is not completely necessary as they are not harmful to health but they can enlarge as time goes on. Treatments vary but the most popular is laser therapy where pulses of laser light are used to destroy the fine, visible veins. Different types of laser can be used with different wavelengths depending on the appearance of the veins. Although thread vain removal treatment is non-invasive and should not be painful, there may be some side-effects. It is rare, but there is still potential for an injury to occur should someone perform the procedure incorrectly.

    Side-effects and potential hazards

    There should be limited side-effects and the risk of injury should be reduced if a professional is consulted for this procedure. Some side-effects may include discolouration of the skin, ulcers (in extreme cases) or the appearance of red veins in the treated area. Complications and adverse reactions are rare with this type of treatment but, if someone is negligent, there could be an issue. Scarring from lasers or burns have the potential to occur if the treatment is not administered correctly. Anyone who chooses to have the treatment should be informed of the side-effects and any potential for adverse reactions beforehand and the therapy should be administered by a medical professional. Should there be evidence of negligence, you can make a compensation claim.
