About the Treatment
Thread veins are extremely common and completely harmless but frequently embarrassing. They are tiny twisted red blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin making them visible. The most common areas of the body to experience thread veins is on the face and legs.
The number of treatments depends on the size of the vein and how your skin reacts. Smaller veins respond more quickly to treatment, which lasts between 5 and 30 minutes.
Most thread veins can be permanently reduced, but touch-ups once or twice a year can be required to maintain the results.
There may be some localised redness, swelling and mild itchiness following your treatment, which normally subsides within 24-48 hours.
Avoid any creams or treatment with active ingredients for at least 3 days.
It is advised to avoid extremes of hot or cold - including baths. Please also avoid direct sunlight for a few days. Use an SPF sun block (factor 50) on the treated area immediately following treatment.
