Thread Vein Removal

Thread Vein Removal

Thread vein removal rids you of ‘spider veins’, small visible red/purple veins in the skin. They are not dangerous but because they are so visible people often dislike them and choose to get them treated. They are extremely common and some people have a genetic tendency to develop them whilst others develop them from hormonal exposure or excess sun exposure.The removal of unwanted thread veins and broken capillaries on the face, legs and decollete area can be treated very effectively with lasers, IPL and sclerotherapy.

Thread Vein Treatment Options

There are a number of thread vein removal treatments available;

  • Laser is also an excellent treatment for small facial thread veins or leg veins and is a safe and effective treatment that involves little downtime or
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can also be used to treat more generalised facial thread veins and redness

At La Belle Forme we have state-of-the-art lasers and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) machines and we offer sclerotherapy.

We will be happy to see you for a consultation to assess your suitability for vein treatments and to advise which treatment is most appropriate.

Thread Vein Removal FAQs

Your skin may look a little red and puffy and be more sensitive to sunlight after treatment. This is normal and will settle down in a few hours.

During summer months you should use an SPF 50 sunblock on the treated areas while they are healing. We will ask you not to suntan or apply fake tan products to the skin during the course of your treatment.

Final results will be seen 4-6 weeks after treatment as it takes a while for your body to reabsorb the blood from the vein.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) works by using light at a specific wavelength to break down the blood in thread veins causing them to disappear. Most people need 4-6 treatments separated by 4 weeks. IPL cannot be used when the skin is tanned or when tanning products have been applied to the skin.
