What is it used for?

Thread veins are found on both the face and body and affect a wide range of age groups and skin types. They are very common and have a number of possible causes, including smoking, hormonal changes and genetic predisposition.

Until now, their treatment was a lengthy and painful process but thanks to new laser technology, unsightly veins of all types can be treated simply, non-invasively and successfully.

What are the benefits?

By using the new combined technologies of the IPL® (Intense Pulsed Light) and Nd:YAG laser systems, we can provide a long-term solution for the treatment of rosacea, thread veins and red spots as well as certain unsightly leg veins.

The system works by emitting intense pulsed light, which is absorbed by the blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels become reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original problem. Skin tone will also appear more even and the complexion will look healthier and brighter.

Many clients notice an improvement after only one laser treatment but up to five treatments may be recommended for optimum results.

What does the treatment involve?

Prior to treatment, you will have a full consultation with one of our doctors who will answer any questions and assess your suitability to proceed. Treatment begins by applying a thin layer of chilled gel to the skin in order to aid light absorption by the vessel. The light applicator is then placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. This process is repeated until the entire area has been treated. Sessions usually last around 20 minutes.

What can I expect after treatment?

After treatment, the area may feel warm for a few hours. Particularly delicate areas such as the cheeks can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. You can return to your daily activities the following day and make up can be applied directly after treatment to the face.
