Thread Vein Removal
Sometimes known as spider or broken veins, thread veins are small clusters of red or blue veins that appear on the face and legs. They are completely harmless, but can leave people feeling self-conscious. Studies show that thread veins can be more visibly ageing than lines and wrinkles, leading many people to take action.
Thread veins are typical on the nose and cheeks. Usually one appears as a red dot, but can sometimes cause redness to the surrounding skin, leaving you with rosy, flushed cheeks. As you age there becomes less collagen in your skin, leaving the skin thinner and veins appearing more visible. Hormonal changes, sun-damage, rosacea, alcohol and smoking can all also accentuate the appearance of thread veins, meaning typically our clients are in their 40s, 50s and 60s.
Treatment consists of tracing the capillary with a tiny needle, causing the capillary to dissolve back into the body. This treatment is only available on the face and neck as is unsuccessful on the legs.
