Facial Thread Veins

Thread veins or telangiectasia are small dilated blood vessels which become visible on the surface of the skin commonly occurring on the nose, cheeks, chest. Thread veins can be hereditary or caused by sun exposure, general ageing, steroid use and pregnancy. Facial thread veins respond well to IPL and occasionally we may use the Nd Yag Laser. We can treat individual thread veins, small areas to large areas such as the chest where sun damage can cause thread veins to cover the skin.

During the treatment a layer of cool gel is applied to your skin and the IPL/Laser is pulsed over the thread veins creating a heat reaction to thermo-coagulate the thread veins causing the body to re-absorb the vessels. Results can be seen several weeks after the treatment.

You may require 3-6 treatments depending on the area being treated and if the veins are mild or severe.

Your skin may feel warm and look similar to mild sunburn this is normal and your skin may feel sensitive for a few days. We recommend that you apply the fast skin repair in the morning and evening while the skin is healing.
