More information

Thread veins, although not harmful, can bother lots of people as they believe them to be unsightly. Facial thread veins can be hidden easily with decent makeup but for those who don’t wear it, or for thread veins on other areas of the body there is often no disguising those pesky red capillaries.

Thankfully, we can remove thread veins in three ways with our AW3 V-Combo Plus and 980nm laser machine. 

  • IPL which works best on facial thread veins
  • ND YAG which works well on thread veins in other body areas such as the legs 
  • 980 nm laser machine which is effective in removing thread veins from the face and body

How it works

All methods use a heat to break down the trapped blood in the capillaries. This then results in the dispersion of the blood and/or removal of any debris in the skin layers through the body’s own clearance system. 

Some thread veins will vanish immediately whereas others may take several sessions to be cleared depending on the severity of those spider veins.

Frequently asked questions

Here are some common questions and answers about this treatment. If you require any other information, please call us on 01527 350 401 or contact us.

There is an element of discomfort with any of the three methods, but pain is subjective and will vary from person to person. IPL and ND YAG feel very much like an elastic band being flicked against the skin, whereas the 980nm laser diode feels more like a burning sensation. These sensations are only whilst the laser or light energy is being administered.

When you come in for your consultation and patch test, we will look at your area of concern and go through all of the options that we feel would work best for you. We very often patch test clients for all of the three treatments and this can then allow the client to feel exactly what they can expect from each treatment.

This is dependant on the type of laser used, how close the capillaries are to the surface of the skin, and also the severity of the thread veins themselves. IPL and ND YAG treatments will require more than one, very often between three and five, whereas the 980nm laser can be as little as one session!

Unfortunately not. For insurance purposes and to adhere to the law surrounding laser treatments we will always carry out a patch test first. Providing that you do not have any adverse reactions to the patch test within 48 hours, such as welts, excessive redness, burning sensation, and blistering, you are then free to book your appointment.

Had the 3D fat freezing today. Nat explained everything in detail. I was quite nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. It was good. Can’t wait to book more treatments and can’t wait to see the results of the fat freezing. Thanks Nat x
