Thread veins, also known as spider veins, usually appear across the nose & cheek area & are often difficult to cover up on a daily basis. It’s not 100% clear why we get these veins, but it’s thought that heat, exposure to the sun, alcohol & hormonal changes along with hereditary factors can trigger them. Our IPL vein removal treatments have helped hundreds of clients reduce the visibility of their red facial veins.

How does IPL vein removal work?PlusMinus

An intense pulsed light is passed over the skin, which then heats the blood vessels to reduce the size. Some disappear straight away and some will change colour and then dissolve and be reabsorbed into the body.

IPL is applied to the feeder part of the vein/capillaries which will constrict the capillary, and coagulate the blood in the vessel. Then the body will break down and re absorb via the lymphatic system. IPL uses a range of different wavelengths to target multiple levels of the skin
