There are various techniques aiming at the removal of thread veins. A laser works by firing a gentle burst of light at selected blood vessels beneath the skin. The relatively painless treatment increases the production of collagen and coagulates the blood inside the vein. Your body’s lymphatic system will then eliminate the treated vein over the next couple of weeks. Both mechanisms together make those vessels naturally disappear.
We recommend treatments at 4-8 week intervals, with the number of treatments depending on the size of the vein and how your skin reacts. Smaller veins respond more quickly to treatment, which takes between 5 and 30 minutes. Most veins can be permanently removed, but touch-ups once or twice a year can be required to maintain the results. Because it’s a non-surgical treatment you’ll be able to walk in and walk out of the clinic.
Veins wider than 3mm might require sclerotherapy. Please ask our team
