Leg thread veins, also referred to as spider veins can appear on the surface of the skin. They can appear blue, purple or red in colour and are thin lines that look a little like a web or branch. They are usually not painful or harmful but can be annoying and affect your confidence when you want to bare your legs, particularly in the summer months.
Lasers and IPL is a non-invasive treatment can be used to remove Thread Veins on the face, body and legs quickly and effectively. Thread Vein removal treatment will remove fine and large thread veins approximately 1-3 mm in size.
The laser light passes safely through the skin which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, but not by the surrounding skin, heating them to the point where the blood in the targeted blood vessel coagulates.
This causes the vein to break down. The damaged veins are gradually dissolved and removed by the body’s immune system, fading over several weeks after treatment leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
