Thread Vein Removal in Surrey Treatment Info

The following can be safely and effectively treated on the face and legs:

  • Thread Veins (spider or broken veins)
  • Spider naevi

When the thread vein, with higher concentrations of haemoglobin, is exposed to light energy, the temperature is raised in the area. This results in damage and breakdown of the vessels which are then absorbed by the body, making them less visible or destroying them completely.

Most people with vascular lesions will be suitable for treatment. You will need to attend for an assessment to check if you are suitable for treatment and how many sessions are needed.

Most patients need a course of 3-6 treatments every 4-8 weeks to achieve the desired results.

The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.

Depending upon your skin type (and the lesion being treated), there is redness and swelling in the treated area for up to 2-3 days after treatment. There may also be some blistering. For facial treatments, this can be significantly reduced and healing enhanced by having Dermalux LED Light Therapy immediately after the laser treatment.

The treated area may also appear darker for 5-7 days after treatment but this will clear shortly afterwards.

  • Immediately after treatment there will be redness and swelling of the treatment area and this feels like mild sunburn.
  • Applying cool packs to the skin for the first few hours after treatment will help reduce discomfort.
  • Application of Aloe Vera gel is helpful.
  • Use SPF 50 and avoid sun exposure. This is essential to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation.
  • Avoid picking and scratching the treated area to reduce the risk of pigmentation.
  • Avoid hot baths, exercise, and heat treatments and treat the skin gently especially for the first 24 hours after treatment.
  • Those being treated for thread veins on the legs will need to wear compression stockings for 2 weeks after treatment.

Your results can be enhanced by using cosmeceutical skincare as well as high level, broad spectrum sun protection to reduce photo-damage.
