What are thread veins and spider veins?

Broken veins or thread veins are also known as spider veins because of their web-like appearance. They start to show up when the tiny blood vessels under your skin enlarge and become more visible. 

Thread veins are much smaller than varicose veins. They are usually red, blue or purple in colour. You will see spider veins under the skin, but they do not cause the skin to bulge like varicose veins do. 

Thread veins can appear in most areas of the body. The most common areas you will find thread veins are on the face and legs. 

While any type of thread vein including facial thread veins are harmless, they can grow and increase in number over time. This is why more and more people are looking to us for thread vein treatment. 

What causes blood vessels to enlarge and thread veins to appear?

Spider veins or thread veins can appear on the skin for a number of reasons. These reasons can vary from one person to the next. 

One of the biggest factors in you being more likely to develop thread veins is your genes. If you have a family history of facial veins or leg veins becoming more visible, then this can make it more likely that you will see this too. 

Other common causes of thread veins Laser Treatment For Broken Veins

  •       Excessive sun exposure over a longer period of time
  •       Hormonal changes 
  •       Excessive alcohol consumption or smoking
  •       Rosacea – more so for facial thread veins 
  •       Changes in the weather and temperature 
  •       When the valves in your leg veins become weak or are damaged – chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)

Thread veins are much more common than you might think. We treat thread veins in both men and women with our laser treatments. 

With a course of laser leg or facial thread vein treatments, you can achieve clearer and healthier-looking skin. 

Which laser treatment for broken veins works best?

Your first step to reducing your thread veins or thread vein removal is to have a consultation with one of our laser experts. They will assess your skin and discuss which one of our laser treatments will work for you and provide you with the best results. 

Photo-facial skin rejuvenation

Our Photo-facial laser treatment uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to target thread veins and destroy them without damaging the surrounding skin. The treatment sends pulses of light to directly target each thread vein which causes them to gradually fade over time.

Not only does this treatment help to remove thread veins but it also improves the tone and texture of your skin. We mostly use this laser treatment to treat facial thread veins, but we also use it on other areas of the body. 

How many sessions you will need, will depend on the treatment area and the size of the thread veins. Your practitioner will discuss this with you at your consultation. IPL treatments are not suitable for some darker skin tones.

Laser thread vein removal treatment 

Laser treatment for thread veins is a safe and effective way to treat unsightly veins. It uses a precise amount of laser energy to heat the thread veins, which causes them to break down.

By breaking down the veins so that they dissolve, it allows your body to naturally flush them out. As a result, you will see skin that looks more clear and radiant than before. 

Laser treatment works well on the face, legs and other areas of the body. You will need a patch test to see whether you are suitable for treatment. Your practitioner will do this during your consultation. 


Are there any side effects from laser treatment for broken veins?

The treatment process itself is not that painful. It may feel quite hot during the treatment, but this sensation will go away after the laser leaves your skin. 

The side effects of laser treatment are minimal. The treated skin may be slightly red and swollen afterwards, but this should go down within a few days.
