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.
There are two types of treatments for removing thread veins - 980nm Laser or IPL (Intense Pulse Light). A light is focussed on the target area, and 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 then breaks down and the debris is removed by the body’s natural waste system.
