Thread Veins & Vascular Lesions

Thread veins and vascular lesions can appear anywhere on the face and body and are common in both men and women.

Presenting themselves as very thin red or purple coloured veins, they are primarily the result of burst blood vessels, becoming visible due to their closeness to the skin′s surface. Thread veins and vascular lesions can be an inherited condition.

 

Still, other contributing factors to their development can include smoking, alcohol consumption, pregnancy, extended periods on your feet or (facially) when affected by the condition Rosacea. The ageing process can also cause their development, as getting older can see naturally lost collagen in the skin, causing it to become thin.

 

Therefore, when our veins expand, they appear to be larger and are more visible. Thread veins and vascular lesions are often felt as unattractive to the affected person, causing embarrassment and feelings of self-consciousness when wearing certain clothing items, such as skirts, shorts and swimwear.

 

At Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic, we use Laser Vein Removal, and IPL Vein Removal to effectively eradicate or reduce the appearance of thread veins and vascular lesions. Laser removal targets the selected blood vessel and uses controlled wavelengths to collapse the vein, absorbed naturally by the body.

 

IPL vein removal uses a process called Photothermolysis, breaking down and collapsing the vein through heat energy, before natural disposal by the body. Each of these treatments is considered safe and comfortable to the client, designed to target only the selected vein or lesion and not cause any damage to the surrounding tissue.

 

A comprehensive consultation with one of our aesthetic specialists will determine the right treatment option for you, considering your concern and desired outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

The surrounding skin is not affected because a laser is set to selective absorption of controlled wavelength. The laser only targets the blood vessels (veins). In this way, the veins’ walls can collapse where the body gradually absorbs them without causing any damage whatsoever to the skin or surrounding tissue.

Most clients state that there is virtually no discomfort at all; some report a slight stinging sensation as the laser pulse targets a vein.

We find that between 3-6 treatments make our clients possible to achieve a significant improvement. A procedure to remove thread veins or vascular lesions can not ensure that new ones will not develop in the future; therefore, further treatments might be required.

Each case is different, and the results can vary from person to person. In some cases, the thread vein or vascular lesion has been shrunk and is dramatically reduced in appearance. Still, in others, it is destroyed. Whatever the outcome, the affected area’s skin can see a significant improvement; looking healthier and more youthful.

Our experience shows that facial thread vein removal is completely safe, highly effective and straightforward. A client can happily expect to be rid of embarrassing red veins around the mouth, nose and cheeks.

Thread veins on the face areas can be associated with Rosacea (along with other symptoms, including facial redness and small inflammatory pustules). Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic can conduct a full and thorough consultation if you are worried that you might have Rosacea, looking at the symptoms you present with and any possible options for treatment that may be available to you.
