OVERVIEW

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.

Frequently
asked
questions

The face and body can both be treated, common areas for treatment include the nose, cheeks, chin and legs.

At consultation, your treatment suitability and expectations will be discussed, the area(s) for treatment assessed and a treatment plan to suit your needs will be completed by one of our laser practitioners. You will be asked to fill in a medical history form before signing consent documents and pre-treatment photographs taken. Depending on the area to be treated, you may be asked to partially undress for your treatment. Towels will be used to cover you for your comfort. The area will be cleaned prior to treatment and a cooled gel applied to the area(s) to assist skin cooling and light penetration. Once treatment is completed, the gel will be removed, you can re-dress and aftercare advice will be given.

Lasers are very safe and highly effective in the treatment of facial thread veins and small leg veins. Some patients may have underlying conditions that are likely to cause further or persistent thread veins, such as long-term skin inflammation (rosacea), acne, sun damage, skin trauma, alcohol and some medications. Your suitability will be discussed with your practitioner at your consultation. Newly suntanned or fake tanned skin cannot be treated so we advise waiting at least 4 weeks after tanning.

Yes, a patch test is required for Dye VL treatment, which will be carried out at your consultation, approximately 2-7 days prior to treatment.

Most patients experience a sensation described as being similar to a rubber band flicking on the skin accompanied with a mild heating of the skin. It is mild and generally tolerated well. The laser handpiece cools on contact with the skin to minimise any discomfort.

After treatment, there is usually some mild redness, swelling and skin sensitivity (similar to mild sunburn) for 1-3 days after laser treatment. The veins themselves may look slightly darker or greyish in colour. This can last for up to 2 weeks post treatment. Side effects are mild and most people can continue in their daily routine.

All our laser treatments are carried out by our laser practitioners with over 10 years experience in skin and laser procedures.

We ask that you attend the clinic without make-up if treating the face, and that skin is not tanned prior to treatment. You may be required to stop using some skincare products such as retinol or tretinoin for one week prior to treatment.

Prices start around £100 per session for full cheeks, price is dependent on area size.

Michelle is the BEST at fillers and Botox out there. I recommend Michelle to everybody. Michelle always gives the most natural looking fillers and the desired result; she really prioritises the look of her work over money. Michelle corrected my fillers perfectly and safely when I’d had a bad experience with another practitioner; she took so much care after her work, even contacting me to check I was happy with the results. 100% recommend!!

I've been coming to Michelle for 7 years for botox to help with my facial paralysis due to jaw surgeries. Michelle has always been kind and listened to what I wanted. She's been able to help transform my face so I can look like me again! She has gave me the confidence that I had lost...I'm forever grateful to her. Recently she recommended a new treatment called EMFACE and so far my results have been amazing!!

I have used the clinic for various skin treatments over the past 10 years. Michelle and the team at Aesthetically You are great. From the minute you enter the clinic, which is set in a beautiful period property on Rodney Street, you feel at ease. The team are friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about each of their specialist areas x

I’m obsessed with skincare and I’ve been going to Aesthetically You for years – they are the only people I trust with my face/body/health and they’ve never let me down. I’ve had multiple procedures and treatments there over the years and recently decided to try their new addition EMFACE. I had planned on only having two sessions but after the results I’ve had so far there’s no way I can’t complete all four recommended. I’ve already booked in for my third one next week. It has completely exceeded my expectations and I’m blown away by the results. It has lifted my face so much that I feel like a completely new person; I didn’t think that results like this were possible with any skincare procedure after having so many (I’m always pretty sceptical trying something new), but the difference is insane after having two sessions. My skin looks so plump and fresh, and I feel like I look so much younger. I don’t mind having downtime after a procedure because I think it usually comes as part of the package but there is no downtime whatsoever and it’s been a huge game changer for me. If you go to Aesthetically You for a consultation or any treatment I promise you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much to all of the team at Aesthetically You – they’re all magical! x

Went in for skin analysis with Hollie and got Obagi products based on her recommendation. I am already seeing a difference in my skin only a few weeks into the process. Obagi products really make a difference. Hollie was super attentive and follows up with me constantly on my progress. She also doesn’t recommend anything more than what you need, so she won’t have you spending extra just for the sake of it. Thank you Hollie.

I absolutely love visiting Aesthetically You. Michelle has used her expertise to transform my face, offering guidance, support and honesty throughout. I finally feel like I look how I feel inside. Instead of walking into work and being told “You look knackered!” (erm… it’s just my face!) I now look refreshed, and have much more confidence. Looking back over my gradual improvements over 12 months makes me smile. Long may it continue! Thank you Michelle xx
