Thread Vein Treatments at Skin Specialist Clinic – Sparx Beauty in Winchester
Thread Veins, commonly known as spider veins or broken veins, are small clusters of blue or red veins that most commonly appear on the face or legs.
Veins and blood vessels deliver a healthy blood supply to the skin but, when they develop too close to the surface, they can cause superficial marks and blemishes. They are not usually harmful, but can look unsightly.
Our highly trained skin specialists at Sparx Beauty in Winchester can improve the appearance of these unsightly red veins, usually completely removing them, using either Intense Pulsed Light laser treatments or sclerotherapy.
During a comprehensive consultation, your skilled specialist will take a medical history to assess which treatment is best suited to your needs. If you are interested in treating your thread veins at our aesthetics clinic in Winchester, please call Sparx Beauty on 01962 878979.
Laser Treatments for Removing Thread Veins
At Sparx Beauty, we use the safe and effective Lynton Luminette Advance laser to eliminate spider or thread veins. Lasers work by directing light of a very specific wavelength onto the thread veins. The energy of the laser is absorbed by the vein or blemish and the vein is gradually dissolved and removed by the body’s immune system.
The number of treatments you will need will depend on the area of the body and the density of the vein or blemish. Treatments are normally at four to six-week intervals.
Red or Spider Vein Removal using Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a popular method of eliminating spider or thread veins. During this non-surgical treatment, a sterile solution is injected into the vein to irritate its inner lining and close the vein. To compensate for the loss of the vein, blood circulation is automatically re-routed through healthy veins.
This treatment is quick, safe and effective. Sclerotherapy can be performed in just 15 minutes (longer if you have multiple veins that need to be treated) and most patients relate the discomfort to that of a minor sting. Find out more about Sclerotherapy treatments.
