What Facial Thread Veins are?
Facial Thread Veins go by the medical term Telangiectasia
and can also be known as Spider Veins. This occurs when small veins become
enlarged close to the surface of the skin. Facial Thread Veins can form in
clusters which can cover significant surface areas of the skin. These are
common and are caused by too much alcohol, acne, rosacea, smoking and sun
over-exposure. Facial Thread Veins can form in clusters which can cover
significant surface areas of the skin. Thread Veins are red or purple broken
veins and capillaries which appear on the face, mainly on the cheeks and nose.
They occur on both male and female skin, while they are harmless many sufferers
choose to treat their Facial Thread Veins for cosmetic reasons.
How Facial Thread Veins are Treated?
Facial Thread Veins or Spider Veins as they are called can
be successfully treated, but best results are on pale skins with bright Spider
Veins, as the most effective treatment Laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
therapies, work by focusing on colour. IPL Laser treatment can eliminate
damaged veins and capillaries by targeting the light energy at the Facial
Thread Veins. The light energy is absorbed by the haemoglobin and converted to
heat energy. This heat energy causes the blood to coagulate, resulting in the
vessel wall collapsing. In time the vessel is broken down and absorbed by the
body, meaning that the thread veins will no longer be visible. Facial Thread
Veins are a cosmetic issue rather than a medical problem.
The cost for Facial Thread Veins will be given on all free
consultations where treatment plans will be discussed with our Aesthetician.
