Thread Vein Removal

Thread Vein Removal

Many people feel particularly self-conscious about them during summertime, when they are wearing skirts and shorts more often. They can have a big impact on your confidence but getting rid of them can be a relatively straightforward procedure.

What are Thread Veins?

Thread veins, or ‘spider’ veins, are tiny blood vessels that are visible through the surface of the skin. 20% of women get them in their 20s, and 50% of woman over 40 suffer from them.
They look like red or purple wiggly lines and although they’re often referred to as ‘broken’ veins, they’re not broken but slightly enlarged.

The medical term for them is telangiectasia, and they tend to develop as we age, as our blood vessels become less elastic. Hormonal changes such as pregnancy can provoke their development; as can a genetic predisposition and exposure to extreme temperatures.
Too much sun exposure is never a good idea if you are prone to broken veins. Sun protection is a must to prevent any more appearing.
At De Vries Cosmetic Centre we offers a number of different treatment options for removal of spider veins. To get more information about Spider Veins at De Vries Cosmetic Centre please contact us.

Which thread veins can be treated?

Thread veins on all parts of your body can be treated. The most common treatments are for superficial veins in the facial, chest or legs areas. As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the haemoglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with light skin.

How does the Thread Vein Removal work?

The laser light is absorbed by the blood inside the vein. This heats up the wall of the vein which collapses, and the vein then dissolves.

How many treatments are needed?

A series of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended at monthly intervals for leg veins. Treatment of facial veins is easier and often only 1 or 2 treatments are required. Every person’s skin is different. We invite you to book a consultation to determine the most suitable treatment for your skin concerns.
