Thread veins

Broken / thread veins can also be known as spider veins, broken capillaries or telangiectasia. These are visible blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin. Broken veins can often be heredity, caused by obesity or as a result of trauma in some cases. They can develop anywhere on the body, but are more common on the face and legs.

Vein Removal

Thread veins (also known as spider veins, broken capillaries or telangiectasia) are visible blood vessels often affecting the face and legs. Thread veins can safely be reduced using laser, in a process called photothermolysis. We use Alma Harmony XL Dye VL for facial veins and an Nd: YAG for larger leg veins. The veins are subjected to short pulses of visible light, which targets the haemoglobin, heating just enough to damage and break down the vessel wall without affecting the surrounding skin. Damaged blood vessels are reabsorbed by the body, making them less visible or destroying them completely.
