A combination of laser, IPL and thermocoagulation therapy are used for facial thread vein removal.
Are the thread vein removal treatments permanent?
The effective removal of facial thread veins and facial redness varies depending on your medical and lifestyle history. Whilst the veins that have been treated will be removed others may appear in years to come but not necessarily in the same area.
Are the treatments painful?
We offer a combination of IPL, Laser and Thermocoagulation for the treatment of facial thread veins. Depending on which treatment, you may feel a slight tingling or warmth from the laser or IPL as it pulses and a mild stinging sensation from the Thermocoagulation therapy. We use the latest technology cooling system post treatment to ensure your comfort.
How many treatments will I need?
We can treat a significant number of veins during one session. Treatments are carried out at 6- 8 weekly intervals with a recommendation of between 2-4 sessions. The number of treatments required varies with the size, depth and location of each vein.
What are the benefits?
Our advanced technology minimises the redness and bruising normally associated with traditional treatments. Our clinical skin treatment ranges and Dermalux LED phototherapy combination will enhance and help prolong the effects of treatment. Our Nurse Practitioner will discuss the most effective treatment for you at your free consultation.
When will I see some results?
The appearance of facial veins will either dramatically fade or completely disappear during the treatment. Some facial areas may show temporary swelling that will subside after a few hours to a few days. The redness of the treated vessels will gradually disappear as the healing process begins. This may take between six and eight weeks. We recommend a medical grade mineral make-up range as it is hypoallergenic and will not irritate the skin. Medical grade mineral make-up may be applied immediately post treatment.
