Get rid of thread veins

Posted on 28 Sep, 2011

Thread veins can be a real pain. A common side-effect of the ageing process and the result of sun damage, these tiny veins can be rather noticeable, particularly if they appear on the face. They can also develop on other areas of the body, with legs and ankles being particularly prone. So, how can you cope with spider veins?

You can try to conceal the veins with concealer. You will need to choose a thick, creamy concealer that offers enough coverage to cover your spider veins. Go for a shade lighter than your natural skin colour for your face, and concealer the same colour as the skin on your legs. Go for concealer designed to be used on the body and make sure you set it with powder.

Thread vein removal

Concealer can be effective, although applying it on a daily basis can be time consuming. Thread vein removal is another option that means you will no longer need to use make-up. AIPL is used to remove the veins by causing them to heat up to a temperature that causes the vein walls to collapse and dissolve. Once the vein has been destroyed, no redness shows through the surface of the skin. This treatment can be applied anywhere on the body.
