 Thread Vein & Pigmentation Laser Treatment FAQs

Facial veins may be hereditary or as a result of a variety of factors including damage from sun exposure, wind and the extremes of temperature.  The over use of steroid creams and certain auto immune conditions may also induce thread veins.  Often the exact cause is unknown and may just be part of the natural ageing process or as a part of a skin condition called rosacea.

Our lasers emit light which is readily absorbed by the blood vessels that produce the thread veins or reddening of the skin. The laser heats the tiny vein to the point where it is destroyed.  Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.  

The number of laser treatments you require depends on the number of thread veins you have.  Small lesions may clear in just a single session.  For general redness and rosacea five or more treatments may be required.  Repeat sessions are spaced every four to six weeks.

Treatment is relatively quick and can be just 10 minutes for a single lesion or up to 45 minutes for a full face.

Immediately after treatment some thread veins will disappear but may re-occur a few days later, but be less visible.  With further treatment these vessels will disappear and are not likely to reoccur.  However, if you have a tendency to facial redness, new veins may appear at some point in the future making further treatment necessary.  Maintenance sessions may not be required for several years though as results are long-lasting.

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is quite quick.  Sensations vary but most people describe it as a very quick, hot pin prick or similar to the flick of an elastic band.
