Thread veins can occur in a variety of sites on the body and can be a real nuisance. Tiny blood vessels in the outer layers of your skin can look unsightly and it is entirely possible to get rid of them using laser. Watch what Dr Brad has to say about those troublesome thread veins.
Superficial blood vessels are either capillaries, arterioles, veins, venules or spider naevi. They are often tortuous and if not treated they can become more extensive and more prominent. This will eventually contribute to an appearance of generalised diffuse redness in the skin or general poor skin health. Sometimes, the presence of broken blood vessels in the skin can be a sign of serious illness including liver disease. Dr Brad has been trained to identify such patients.
Dr Brad uses the premium Cynosure Elite Plus 1064nm Nd:YAG laser system to treat these troublesome vascular malformations.
Facial Vein Laser Treatment
Facial veins are usually thin, red “broken capillaries” but are sometimes blue or purple. They typically appear on the nose and cheeks. Nose veins can also be treated and may be blue or red in colour.
Chest Vein Laser Treatment
Upper chest vessels are usually of the thin red type and can be treated too. Background UV damage is often also present and may be treated with laser too.
Leg Vein Laser Treatment
Leg veins come in all shapes, colours and sizes. Many of them will lie deeper in the skin than vessels in other parts of the body and this can make them difficult for some practitioners. Fortunately, Dr Brad's Elite Plus laser system is capable of dealing with these veins. Not all veins can be treated with laser although this can be assessed and discussed at consultation.
From £197 (larger or more numerous blood vessels may attract a higher price and this will be determined at your consultation).
