As you age your skin loses collagen and becomes thinner, so when veins expand, they become visible through your skin. Prominent thread veins can be inherited, but they are often caused by long term sun exposure, pregnancy, rosacea, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods. Thread veins are extremely common in many men and women. They can be unsightly and make you feel very self-conscious.

What is Thread Veins & Vascular Lesions removal?
As we age, sometimes small, broken veins can appear on the face and body. It has been estimated that over 25% of adult females are currently suffering with some type of vein problem.

How does Thread Veins & Vascular Lesions removal with IPL & Laser work?
Our state-of-the-art lasers eliminate only the unwanted red veins and don’t affect the surrounding skin, leaving healthy vein-free skin. Laser light is directed at the unwanted veins, causing them to heat up extremely quickly, break down and collapse in on themselves. The process is called photothermolysis.
What is the advantage of Thread Veins & Vascular Lesions removal with IPL & laser?
Because the laser is set to a controlled wavelength, it only targets the blood vessels and not the surrounding skin. This enables the walls of the veins to collapse and be harmlessly absorbed by the body without causing any damage to the skin or surrounding tissue.
What does treatment feel like?
Although many patients report little or no discomfort, some may experience a mild stinging sensation when the laser pulse is delivered.
How many treatments will I need?
In many cases, significant improvement is realised in as few as one to three treatments. In some cases new spider veins may appear, therefore, additional treatments may be necessary.
How are the results?
The results are semi-permanent. However, in some cases they can return if the vein only shrinks (and rendered invisible) rather than completely obliterated.
Is the treatment safe?
Facial thread vein removal treatment is safe, effective and straightforward; you can expect to say goodbye to red veins and say hello to beautiful, vein-free skin.
I have thread veins and I blush very easily. It is mild Rosacea?
The symptoms of Rosacea include facial redness across the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead, visibly damaged blood vessels and small red inflammatory pustules. Rosacea is not a life threatening condition but because it affects your appearance it can be very distressing. Rosacea affects fair skinned people of Anglo-Saxon and Celtic backgrounds and is most common among middle aged women. The first sign is often temporary flushing, especially after a hot drink, spicy food or when you walk into an overheated room. Environmental factors such as sudden exposure to sunlight, wind or temperature extremes make it worse, so does red wine and caffeine.
