Thread Vein Removal

Thread veins or broken veins are the small red or blue veins which can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and legs.

We have extensively researched various lasers and pulsed light systems. With medical expert advice and proven results; the laser system we deploy is the latest technology for the reduction and removal of both leg and facial thread veins.

How does it work?

Lasers work by producing light of a very specific wavelength. If the wavelength of the laser is matched to a target colour (such as the red of blood in the blood vessel), the energy of the laser is absorbed by the thread vein but not by the surrounding tissues. The damaged veins are gradually dissolved and removed by the body's immune system over several weeks after treatment. The thread veins fade away.

How many treatments?

The number of treatments needed will depend on the affected area and will be estimated at your consultation. It is unusual for less than 2 treatments to be required. Treatments are usually planned at four to six weekly intervals.

What happens during treatment?

The finer veins will be immediately less visible than before treatment. The thicker veins may appear darker at first. There may be some skin reaction in the form of slight swelling or a light crusting and sometimes bruising that can develop after a day or two and rarely slight blistering can occur. During and after treatment the skin is cooled to reduce discomfort and aid the healing process. Following the aftercare instructions is critical to the success of the treatment.

The key to finding a safe place for laser treatment is to find a Care Quality Commission Registered and Regulated Clinic

I had facial thread veins for years on my face and was just fed up wearing thick foundation. After only 2 treatments I don't have to wear the make-up and feel so much more confident! Would recommend anyone to have it done and Hazel and her staff are brilliant

No more long skirts hiding legs I was ashamed of! I found the Northampton Laser Clinic to be exceptionally professional with clearly many years experience. A really friendly bunch. Large areas of thread veins on my lower legs have been successfully removed in 3 sessions. Worth every penny and less expensive than I expected
