What exactly are thread veins? 

Thread veins, known also as telangiectasia, are tiny blue/red/purple veins that appear most commonly on your legs. They aren’t painful or dangerous, but many people develop an insecurity about them and wish to have them removed. 

Thread veins occur due to damage or weakness, they are sometimes caused by hormonal changes and ageing too. Sitting/standing for too long everyday for a lengthy period of time is another common reason as to why people develop thread veins. It’s important to keep your body moving throughout the day to potentially avoid this.

The treatment options we offer 

Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic we have a variety of different laser treatments we offer to remove thread veins. Our treatments are 100% safe and effective, with the desired results in as little as 2-6 weeks. 

Vascular laser treatment

Working in a similar way to IPL skin rejuvenation, vascular laser treatment works by penetrating the skin and using light to heat up the blood vessels, effectively eliminating them.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) skin rejuvenation

Using our advanced modern technology, our team of professionals are able to remove thread veins from the target area relatively quickly. One of our most common treatment options is IPL therapy. IPL therapy simply involves using light to heat up the blood vessels which causes them to collapse. Smaller thread veins should disappear quickly but larger ones may turn a dark colour before eventually disappearing also. 

IPL skin rejuvenation is an effective and safe procedure to treat thread veins. If you’re interested in our non-invasive laser treatments then contact our team who are happy to help.
