WHAT IS THREAD VEIN REMOVAL?
Thread veins also known as spider veins (telangiectasia) are small blood vessels under the skin that are either red, purple or blue that have twisted or turned. Not to be confused with varicose veins that are are more swollen and enlarged. These dilated blood vessels are commonly found in the body namely the cheese, legs and chin. Thread veins are caused by natural processes such as ageing, acne, rosacea, hormonal factors (the menopause, pregnancy), or certain medications, or environmental damage caused by sun or cold exposure. To ensure the best rosacea treatment plan at London Premier Laser & Skin Clinic we offer a free consultation and patch test.

HOW DOES LASER THREAD VEIN REMOVAL WORK?
At London Premier Laser & Skin Clinic, we use the latest state of the art equipment for the reduction of spider or thread veins to ensure we deliver the safest most effective solution to our clients. Our laser vein removal procedure targets and cauterises the veins, effectively cutting off the blood supply to the vessels without damage to the epidermis or surrounding tissue.
Once blood is no longer supplied to the vein, it is naturally absorbed and expelled by the body. This treatment is most effective when targeting spider veins and smaller varicose veins (those that are 3mm and less in diameter). If your veins are larger, please arrange a consultation with one of our expert practitioners who will be able to advise you on the best vein removal option. The treatment is relatively quick and painless for most.

Results are immediate. May vary from person to person depending on the size of the thread vein.
WILL LASER THERAPY WORK ON MY LEG VEINS?
Although there is no way to tell for sure which veins will respond, a consultation with our experienced practitioners to evaluate and assess your veins will help to determine if you could benefit.
Prior surgery or treatment on your veins could affect the treatment outcome. In some cases, further testing may be recommended to determine if there are underlying venous problems.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Although many patients report little or no discomfort, some may experience a mild stinging sensation when the laser pulse is delivered.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED FOR LASER THREAD VEIN REMOVAL?
In many cases, significant improvement is realised in as few as one to three treatments.
In some cases new spider veins may appear, therefore, additional treatments may be necessary.
IS LASER THREAD VEIN REMOVAL SAFE?
Thread vein removal is completely safe as the laser targets only the vein without damaging the surround skin. Bruising or swelling can occur but should subside shortly after treatment.

At London Premier Laser & Skin Clinic we can treat all areas effected by thread veins with the exception of the nose and ankles.
HOW LONG DOES SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL LAST?

AT THE CLINIC
Our practitioner will meet with you to discuss your options and to examine the areas which concern you. You will be asked about your medical history and will have an opportunity to ask any questions about the procedure.
Treatment usually lasts between 15 – 30 minutes but may vary depending on the number and size of the vessel(s) to be treated. Most clients do not feel any pain though some report a slight stinging or mild prickling sensation.
You can usually continue with normal activities after treatment but we do ask that clients do not visit the gym, the sauna or take any exercise which will cause overheating. Similarly we ask that you do not expose the area to direct sunlight but use a minimum SPF 30 sunscreen.
