What are thread veins/facial veins?
Thread Veins or broken veins are damaged veins and capillaries just below the skin. Smaller veins are usually red in colour but larger veins can look purple and may make you feel self-conscious.
How can thread veins be treated?
Zenith Cosmetic Clinics offers an advanced laser treatment with our Senior Aesthetic Nurse, Pauline, that can quickly and safely eliminate thread veins and broken capillaries.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
Pauline will need to assess your veins in a consultation before deciding on a course of treatment that will get the best results.
What happens during the procedure?
The procedure is not painful but you may find it slightly uncomfortable. The vein is targeted with the laser which collapses the vessal wall. The vein is then absorbed by the body, leaving much clearer skin behind.
What are the side effects or risks?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience some redness and swelling, and there is avery small risk of bruising.
What results can I typically expect?
This treatment is very effective and we are confident that we can improve the look of your thread veins significantly. We recommend a minimum of two treatments to see optimum results, although this will be discussed with your in your consultation.
Before your procedure
You will be given goggles to wear while the laser is being used.
Makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately, if necessary. It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with SPF25 sun block and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent additional sun damage.
