Thread Vein Removal


pink circle 01

The laser light passes safely through the skin which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, but not by the surrounding skin, heating them to the point where the blood in the targeted blood vessel coagulates. This causes the vein to break down. The damaged veins are gradually dissolved and removed by the body’s immune system, fading over several weeks after treatment leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser thread vein removal is a relatively painless treatment that increases the production of collagen, making those vessels naturally disappear. Our clients often see a visible reduction in unwanted veins by as much as 75% with one to three treatments. We use medical-grade YAG laser for fast, effective results.

By using a combination of IPL and ND YAG laser we can break down thread veins in the leg and face.

After ND YAG there will be some frosting remaining on the skin, this will down quickly but may scab slightly, when choosing the ipl the face will remain red for a few hours.

Laser is often described as like an elastic band pinging on the skin.

Every individual is different, we suggest between 4-8 sessions for maximum benefit.
