Thread Vein Treatments
As we move into autumn with a vengeance, thread veins caused by unprotected exposure to bad weather become more obvious, especially as the healthy glow acquired over the summer fades.
This is the perfect time to consider our highly effective thread vein treatments – which can, coincidentally, only be safely used when you don’t have a suntan.
With effective Thread Vein treatments now available, the unsightly red veins need no longer be an issue.
You no longer have to worry about your facial thread veins. These thin vessels (called telangiectasias) around your nose or on your cheeks are small blood vessels near the surface of the skin, often formed as a result of sun-exposure. They sometimes occur in a more general area of redness.
Short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light (called I2PL technology by Ellipse) are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood in your problem vessels. The light is converted to heat, which destroys the protein in the wall of the thread vein, causing the veins to gradually, disappear after treatment. To ensure the best light transmission, a thin layer of gel (like that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment.
