Facial Thread veins are removed using a laser, via a process called photothermolysis. The laser is directed at the unwanted veins causing them to heat up rapidly and as a result they break down and collapse in on themselves. The surrounding skin is not affected due to our state-of-the-art lasers and as a result your skin is left looking healthy, clear and the unwanted vein is eliminated.
Lasers used in the treatment of unwanted thread veins is not only fast but also safe. A visible reduction as much as 75% can be seen within one to three treatments.
Absolutely. The laser targets only the unwanted veins, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Swelling and redness is common but subsides after 48 hours.
In some cases a thread vein may only shrink. If this was to happen, the thread vein may reappear in time and therefore further treatments may be required. 100% clearance of thread veins cannot be guaranteed as more veins can appear due to lifestyle and environmental factors but your skin therapist will discuss ways in which you can reduce the likelihood of this happening.
