What are thread veins?

Broken capillaries, also known as ‘thread veins’, are enlarged blood vessels that have widened due to a weakness in the vein wall or a problem with the valves that control the flow of blood. Broken veins are the small, superficial purple or red veins stretching like a web under the skin. They get their name as they look like small threads under the skin and can be quite unsightly.
Physical stress on the skin and overexposure to the sun are believed to contribute to the dilation of these veins, especially those found on the face.

Facial thread vein removal is a common treatment that we provide, although these broken capillaries can appear on other areas of the body as well.

Many people have broken capillaries or veins (also known as broken vessels or red veins) they would like to reduce. Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments can provide an effective broken capillary and vein treatment, as well as being a solution to broken blood vessels. Over time, little red veins on the nose, chin or cheeks become more noticeable. In addition, wavy, thin reddish-purplish veins become increasingly visible on the legs, often clustered on the thigh or below the knee. Capillaries or facial veins will affect as many as 60% of all women and a large proportion of men.

Our approach on facial thread vein removal

In the past, there was little you could do about broken capillaries and veins. However we have been able to satisfy many clients with our expertise and experience in facial thread vein removal using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

For several years we have specialised in Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) which is an incredible technological discovery. IPL enables us to collapse the vein and broken capillary without doing any damage to the surrounding outer layers of skin. The wavelength discharged through the pulse of the laser enables the light to reach the targeted veins under the skin, whilst also improving the overall appearance of the skin by evening out skin tone and encouraging the production of collagen.
