Facial thread veins are tiny blood vessels which run close to the surface of the skin. They look like thin red or occasionally purple or blue lines. They appear when blood vessels become enlarged which cause the veins to appear broken. The medical term for them is telangiectasia.
Laser treatment is a safe, effective way to banish thread veins. The light from the laser is directed at the veins causing them to heat up very quickly. This heat will cause the vein to break down and collapse in on itself which may present as some bruising on the skin’s surface. The damaged vein gradually dissolves and is removed through the body’s natural immune system, leaving the skin smooth and clear. Speak to our friendly team to discuss this treatment further.
