Laser Thread Vein & Pigmenation Removal
Our Medical Grade Laser is employed for the removal of broken capillaries on the face, thread veins on the leg and pigmented lesions such as sun spots on both the face and body. The Laser creates a beam of high intensity light that penetrates deeply into the skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Treated capillaries gradually fade over a period of 3 – 12 weeks while treated pigmented lesions darken initially and fade away over 7-10 days.
A consultation and patch test is carried out to ensure suitability for the treatment. During this time we can assess the area to be treated and give guidelines as to how many treatments may be required and aftercare. It also gives us an opportunity to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Leg Thread Veins or Spider Veins are small superficial thread like veins close to the skins surface. They are small red, blue or purple veins that commonly appear on the surface of the thighs, calves and ankles. Spider veins may be isolated or associated with “feeder veins”. They can also be associated with larger underlying varicose veins. Leg veins usually appear on the skin in a pattern that resembles the branches of a tree or as thin separate lines on the skin. The spider veins appear with a central point with legs or branches radiating from the centre. These veins have no particular function and so removing them will not have any adverse effects to the body.
There are many factors which contribute to the development of leg veins. They may be hereditary, develop during pregnancy, hormonal factors, weight gain, as a result of prolonged sitting or standing and trauma. Treatments of these veins include Sclerotherapy or Laser with the Long pulsed Nd/YAG.

Facial Thread Veins, otherwise known as Telangiectasia appear most commonly as a result of medication, hormone changes during pregnancy/menopause, post radiation therapy, hereditary or sundamage to the skin over time. They appear as bright red or purple lines or dots on the skin.
A spider telangiectasia, also known as a Spider Naevus is a telangiectasia with a red central feeding vessel with little branches of vessels radiating outwards from the centre. Both the Apidermie and IPL devices are excellent for the removal of facial and spider telangiectasia. The therapist will recommend during a consultation which form of treatment would achieve the best result for the condition presented.
