Vascular thread vein removal is a cosmetic procedure that aims to eliminate or reduce the appearance of small, visible blood vessels near the surface of the skin, also known as spider veins or broken capillaries. These veins can appear as red, blue, or purple lines or clusters and are most commonly found on the face, legs, and other parts of the body.
There are several methods for removing thread veins, including laser treatment, intense pulsed light (IPL), and sclerotherapy. Laser treatment involves directing a beam of light onto the affected area, causing the blood vessels to coagulate and break down. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light to heat and destroy the veins, while sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the veins, causing them to collapse and eventually disappear.
The specific method used will depend on the size, location, and severity of the veins, as well as the individual’s skin type and medical history. The procedure is generally considered safe and effective, although some mild discomfort and temporary redness or bruising may occur following treatment.
Examples of vascular lesions that can be removed are thread veins, cherry Angiomas, spider naevi, rosacea. But if unsure always book in for a consultation with one of our laser specialists who can answer all your questions and advise you further.
