At Aesthetics Lab, our approach to thread vein removal involves harnessing the cutting-edge technology of the most advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system available in the market. This innovative system is specifically designed to target and treat spider veins. The procedure operates by utilizing light to generate controlled heat within the veins. The heat induces the collapse of the vein walls, leading to the formation of scar tissue. Over time, these treated veins are naturally reabsorbed by the body, gradually fading away over the course of several weeks.
This technique has demonstrated exceptional efficacy not only in addressing spider veins but also in effectively treating varicose veins and cherry angiomas. The transformative process initiates with the collapse of the vein walls, paving the way for the formation of scar tissue. Subsequently, the body’s natural healing mechanisms come into play as the treated veins are gradually reabsorbed, resulting in a noticeable reduction or elimination of the thread veins.
What sets our IPL machine apart is the incorporation of a sophisticated cooling system, known as the Sapphire Spot. This cutting-edge technology serves to minimize any potential discomfort that may arise during the thread vein removal treatment. By prioritizing patient comfort, we aim to provide a seamless and pleasant experience, ensuring that individuals undergoing this procedure can confidently anticipate optimal results without unnecessary discomfort.
Aesthetics Lab always put your health and well being first. At your initial IPL thread vein consultation, we will talk through your medical history to be sure of any possible contraindications. This appointment provides a great opportunity to ask as many questions as you want. We’ll always answer openly and honestly.
Your Aesthetician will cover the whole area of concern that has been highlighted with a broad spectrum light. The light is pulsed onto the skin causing the vein walls to break down. Throughout the treatment a system called Sapphire Spot will be used, to help keep your skin surface cool, making the procedure very comfortable.
Generally, the downtime after the IPL thread vein procedures is very little. You may notice slight redness that should subside within half an hour. Most clients recover almost immediately following the procedure. It is essential to follow your aesthetician’s recommendations to help maintain the results achieved.
To benefit from optimum results, we often advise a course of four sessions. Further appointments may also be required to maintain the achieved results.
During your consultation, an experienced aesthetician will carry out a skin assessment. This will enable us to create a tailored treatment plan in line with your skin needs.
Thread veins, also known as spider or broken veins, are small clusters of red or blue veins.
Lots of factors contribute to their formation including ageing, alcohol, smoking and hormonal changes.
They commonly occur on the face, chin, nose, cheek, and legs.
Most people will suffer from thread veins, with around one in five women in their 20s. This figure rises to around half by the age of forty and continues to increase. By the age of 70 over 70% of women have some thread veins.
IPL is an extremely effective, non-invasive solution for the reduction of thread veins and prominent blood vessels.
