The laser works efficiently to target the vein or veins while leaving the surrounding skin untouched so that it can heal quickly with a minimum of scarring and sometimes none at all.
London (PRWEB UK) 19 December 2012
Thread veins are quite common and the good news is that they are medically harmless. However, they are rarely considered attractive; so for those patients struggling to hide the appearance of red spider veins on the face or bluish broken veins on the legs, they can become quite a prominent feature which they would rather not have.
Facial thread veins are the most obvious as they are so visible year round. They can appear as one or just a few quite distinct veins with a bluish tinge; or where there are a lot, look more like a red patch of tiny capillaries, interwoven at the skin’s surface and lending a “ruddy” appearance. They are especially noticeable where the skin is thin, for example, on the nose, chin or cheeks.
Now the latest advanced laser technology offers thread vein sufferers hope of a fast, efficient and permanent solution in private clinics.
Dr Ross Perry, Medical Director at Cosmedics Skin Clinics, explains:
“For the broken, red spider veins on the face and particularly the nose we use a safe cautery laser to seal off the unsightly blemishes, removing the redness. The laser works efficiently to target the vein or veins while leaving the surrounding skin untouched so that it can heal quickly with a minimum of scarring and sometimes none at all.”
“Treatment is surprisingly effective and for many patients, the problem can be solved in just treatment, though in some cases 2-3 sessions may be advisable to get the optimum finished result.”
“Once treated with laser, the thread veins should not return; although continued over-exposure to the sun, smoking or hormonal changes such as menopause may cause new thread veins to appear.”
For treating larger veins which can appear on the body, tiny sclerotherapy injections are more suitable. These work to effectively block the offending veins at the skin’s surface, causing them to dissolve over the following weeks. In some cases, laser and injection treatments may be combined for best results.
