About broken veins

What are broken veins?

Broken veins (also called ‘spider veins’ or ‘thread veins’) are very thin blood vessels that lie just below the surface of the skin and which have started to become more visible.

They appear as fine red or purple wavy lines, usually on the face, chest and legs, and may get larger and increase in number over time.

However, they are harmless and the veins have not actually broken, only become slightly enlarged.

What causes broken veins?

There is no obvious single cause to broken or thread veins, although some activities and conditions may make them appear worse.

They may just be something that develops as we get older and our skin and veins become less ‘elastic’.

Other symptoms

If you notice other symptoms along with the broken veins – such as the skin on your face becoming red and sensitive, with periods of flushing or blushing that have no obvious cause – then you may have the skin condition rosacea: click here for information about rosacea.

Treatments for broken or thread veins

Broken veins, wherever they appear and whatever the cause, are unwelcome at best. At worst, they can leave you always having to cover up your problem skin, and feeling less attractive than you deserve.

We can help with the following treatments that reduce or remove the appearance of broken or thread veins.

  • Laser photofacial skin rejuvenation improves skin tone and texture for a range of conditions including broken veins, with minimal downtime: click here for more details.
  • Laser thread vein removal uses a carefully prescribed dose of laser energy to remove problem veins without affecting surrounding areas, with minimal downtime: click here for more details.

In your consultation, we may discuss combining two or more procedures in a treatment plan that will help maximise results.

    I have been coming here for the last year and can honestly say it is one of the best salons I’ve been to… I’ve been having the micro needling treatment and my skin has never been better. I would highly recommend this treatment and salon.

    I’ve been coming here for over a month now for blue LED light treatment and can’t recommend enough! The treatment itself has done wonders for my acne, the staff are lovely and the location is great. I also think the prices are very reasonable and have recommended Skin Perfection to my sister, who has started the same treatment.

    I have visited the saloon for 6 course of yellow LED light therapy. The ladies there are all very nice and gave me full information about the treatment before during and after the course of 6. It is quite difficult to take appointment within a short time so i suggest to book your slot asap as they get fully booked very easily. …

    Skin Perfection is one of the best clinics I have ever been to, they know what they talking about when it comes to your skin… When you first step in the clinic you are made to feel very welcome not rushed and they listen to what your concerns are about your skin, and what products will be best for your skin.

    I had my first session of laser hair removal today. I was anxious but Lauren B was very informative, professional and patient. I even noticed results from my patch test. The clinic is sparkling clean and clinically spotless. They are fully informed and professionally trained and I’m looking forward to the rest of my treatments. …

    … I’m delighted with the results of my recent LVL (“lash volume lift”) treatment. Lilly added volume and dimension to my stick straight, long blonde lashes. The curl and blue/black tint really made them pop! I feel so pretty and awake now without makeup, and with mascara, the extra drama is intense in the best way. So happy I found a way to enhance my lashe without those high-maintenance and damaging extensions.

    … I have had a course of skin treatments: photofacial rejuvenation combined with a peel and my skin feels so much better for it. It can be uncomfortable during treatment but definitely worth the results.

    I’d highly recommend Skin Perfection. I’ve used them for my lazer hair removal and it has been extremely successful. They are incredibly professional, fast and organised, always texting or calling before appointments, always on time and the treatment itself has worked really well and I’m going to continue using them for more.
