Thread Veins 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.

Testimonials

"ALEVERE WEIGHT LOSS BY CLAIRE – BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE!
Ever since I can remember I have been overweight and unhappy with the way that I look. I have tried all types of diets over the years and nothing has ever worked for me. When I found out about Alevere and how it was monitored by a doctor I knew this would be different and was excited to find out more.My consultation was very informative and gave me lots of reassurance and confidence in myself to get down to a healthy weight. I lost 3 stone in 5 months and feel like a completely different person, I never thought I would ever lose weight or feel better about myself but this diet has changed my life and I am so grateful. The staff made me feel so comfortable and I knew that they were always around if I needed support which was a big motivation during my journey!

" I’M SO PLEASED WITH THE RESULT, IT’S SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE!
I had these dark patches due to sun damage for a long time. During summer, they became darker and bigger, really noticeable. health + aesthetics is local, and I’d also done some research, checked out the Facebook page, reviews, and looked at the website and everything looked professional, so I booked the consultation.At my first consultation, I was advised to follow a strict skincare regime. We started off with a low strength and then gradually it got stronger and stronger. I had to persevere with it because my skin started to be flaky, red and itchy.Specialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham, Surrey ZO cosmeceuticalsSo, every 6 weeks, I went up to a stronger product I went through the same process but I had a check-up and Visia photos taken, so it was obvious that it really worked. Not to mention that my whole face and skin started to look and feel fresher. I also had a course of HydraFacial treatment that gives an instant glow and your skin looks and feels fresh. I appreciated that everything was explained really well, I could see the changes on the screen as well as in the mirror.All in all, it’s been a really positive experience. It made me feel better about my look. It definitely makes me look younger. I would definitely recommend health + aesthetics basically to anyone who has any kind of issues with their skin. I didn’t think that a product use could have such a huge impact. It’s worth coming for the consultation to see what solutions there are out there and to get advice on your next steps. I feel more confident, the way I look. I’m so pleased with the result, it’s such a big difference!Joanne (42)"
