Thread Vein Removal
Thread veins, also known as telangiectasia or spider veins, occur when capillaries (the smallest of blood vessels) become permanently dilated and rupture, spreading blood to other capillaries and leaving a fine red or blue tree-like appearance just under the skin.
What types of clients can be treated ?
We can only treat, people with pale skin, fair skin and olive skin. It is important to avoid sun exposure 30 days before the treatment and during your treatments.
The removal sensation will vary on different areas of the body and can be different from client to client.
How does the treatment work?
There are two types of treatments for this procedure, 980nm Laser or IPL (Intense pulse light).
A light is attracted to the target area as the light is obstructed by the blood vessel it causes a leaf reaction, which coagulates the blood and destroys the protein in the wall of the vessel. The vessel breaks down and the debris are removed by the body’s natural waste system.
How many treatments are needed ?
This will be discussed at your consultation.
Does it hurt?
The sensation varies upon the client although mild sunburn is described for most clients. A sharp pain during and tingling after is normal.
