There are two types of treatments for removing thread or spider 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. As a result the veins will gradually, and safely, disappear after treatment.
Which thread veins can be treated?
Thread veins on all parts of your body can be treated. The most common treatments are for superficial veins in the facial, chest or leg areas. As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the haemoglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with light skin. The lighter the
skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the vessel and the skin, making treatment easier.
Treatment is suitable for you if you want to:
>Reduce overall facial redness and blushing
>Be rid of embarrassing broken veins or red spots
>Have clearer, brighter, fresher looking skin
