What Are Spider Veins?
Telangiectasia, more commonly known as spider veins or thread veins, appear as highly visible veins usually in a red or blue colour. We typically see spider veins appearing on the legs, although they can also affect the face. Spider veins occur when the veins become weak or damaged. This leads to a backup of blood as it can no longer be effectively pumped around.
Causes of Spider Veins:
- Genetic predisposition
- Temperature changes
- Hormonal changes
- Prolonged sitting
- Prolonged standing
As with many skin concerns, we treat, smoking and alcohol are also considered risk factors, along with sun exposure.
Spider Veins Treatment
Although spider veins will not cause you harm and are not a health concern alone. Their appearance is usually a cosmetic concern for many people. During the summer months when you wish to wear shorts, skirts, and dresses, it can be hard to cover your spider veins. We find they often cause many people anxiety and low self-esteem. At the Laser Treatment Clinic, we aim for all our clients to leave the clinic feeling confident and happy with their skin.
Using the cutting-edge technology available at our Harley Street Clinic, we are able to remove spider veins safely and quickly. Our non-invasive procedures offer permanent results and can be used on the face as well as the body.
For the permanent removal of spider veins we use the following in-clinic treatments. These treatments allow us to treat deep set thread veins and spider veins, along with those closer to the surface of the skin:
- Intense Pulsed Light Photo-rejuvenation (IPL)
- Advanced Electrolysis
For an at home treatment, we also recommend using the following products in your skin care routine, to complement the treatment you receive in our clinic:
- Marine Fluid Shine Free
