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 it work?
An intense pulsed light is light that 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 re absorbed into the body.
IPL is applied to the feeder part of the vein/capillaries which will constricted 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
Will it work for my skin type?
If you are a person who is prone to redness, broken veins and rosacea. For leg veins the treatment would be laser vein removal.
What areas of my body can be treated?
With IPL we can treat body and face areas above the heart.
What results can I expect?
We can reduce the size colour and amount of veins, for a visible improvement in your skin.
Before treatment you will need a consultation and a test patch, so we can get the best results. You will also need to have no tan, fake or natural. Also to avoid using any exfoliators, retinols or fruit acids for 5-7 days before treatment.
