Fine Red Thread Veins are small veins that commonly occur on the face and look like spider webs or threads. They are commonly caused by ageing, alcohol consumption, injury, exposure to harsh weather conditions and astringent products.
Fine Red Thread Veins can be safely and effectively removed using Advanced Electrolysis to cauterise the veins. Normally depending on the size of the area to be treated, a course of treatments is required. This will be discussed at your appointment.
Treatments time is 15 minutes.
An initial redness is present straight after treatment and a simple aftercare routine is given for the following 24-48 hrs. Whilst the healing process is active there can be the occurrence of very small scabs and it may look as though the veins have returned. Once healed (usually within 2-4 weeks), the scabs will naturally fall off leaving the skin healed and clear. Removing red thread veins can really improve the over-all appearance of your complexion.
Advanced Electrolysis for Fine Red Thread Veins is most effective on the face and upper body. Unfortunately most veins on the legs and lower torso need a different treatment called Sclerotherapy as they tend to be too big to treat with our equipment.
