What are facial thread veins?

As we get older, we may notice that small veins begin to show through the skin, particularly on the face and neck. Most commonly these veins are a result of a genetic predisposition, smoking, or prolonged exposure to sunlight. These veins are known as thread veins and usually occur on the face or legs.

Thread veins (also known as spider veins) are tiny, red veins that can appear on the face, especially around the nose and cheeks. They are caused by a number of factors, including genetics, sun exposure, and rosacea. Thread veins are often harmless, but they can sometimes be unsightly and embarrassing.

Thread veins may be purple, blue, or red in colour, and although not harmful, can be unsightly. However, they do have the potential to develop into more painful, and serious, varicose veins, so it is better to treat thread veins before this occurs.

What are the benefits of laser thread vein removal?

Laser thread vein removal is a quick, easy, and relatively painless treatment. Most people only require one treatment session to remove their thread veins.

The laser destroys the blood vessels that cause the veins to appear, so the treated area will no longer have any visible veins. The results are generally permanent, although new veins may develop over time.

What are the causes of facial thread veins?

Thread veins are caused by a number of factors, including genetics, sun exposure, and rosacea. Sun exposure is the most common cause of thread veins, as it can damage the skin and cause the veins to enlarge. Rosacea is a skin condition that can also cause thread veins. Genetics can play a role in the development of thread veins, as some people may be more prone to them than others.

How does laser treatment work?

The treatment process for laser thread vein removal is simple. The practitioner will use a laser to target the blood vessels that cause the veins to appear.

Laser treatment eliminates thread veins by targeting the blood vessels that caused them to appear in the first place. The laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, which disrupts their ability to carry blood. This causes them to close up and eventually disappear.

The results are generally permanent, although new veins may develop over time.

How many sessions will I need?

After one treatment, some people notice changes; however, for optimum effects, we recommend a three-treatment course.

Between each treatment, allow four weeks between sessions. A course of therapy would last for three months.

Is laser thread vein removal permanent?

Most people who have laser thread vein removal will see a permanent reduction in the appearance of thread veins. However, new veins may develop over time.
