Thread Vein Treatments at Top Laser Clinic in Staines-upon-Thames
Thread veins, also known as spider veins or broken veins, are small clusters of dilated blue or red veins that are most commonly found on the face or legs. Veins and blood vessels are essential for moving your blood supply around the body but, when they develop too close to the skin’s surface, they can cause superficial marks and blemishes. They are not usually harmful, but can look unsightly.
Commonly, thread veins appear on the cheeks, around the nose, and on the legs. There are several reasons why they might develop, including hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, over-exposure to the sun and hereditary factors.
If you are at all concerned and would like a treatment to remove these tiny veins, please contact Retreat Clinic, Laser Clinic and Beauty Salon in Staines-upon-Thames for a free consultation.

Laser Treatment to Remove Thread Veins
Utilising the latest technology, the experts at Retreat Clinic will use a hand-held laser to heat the thread veins. The laser light passes safely through the skin and is absorbed by the blood vessels, heating them up and causing them to contract then break down. The damaged veins are then gradually dissolved by the body, their appearance fading away over a number of weeks.
Two or three sessions will usually leave your skin feeling smooth and blemish-free, however we usually recommend on average 5 treatments to ensure the best results.
Does Laser Thread Vein Removal Hurt?
Most clients find that although laser thread vein removal can be an uncomfortable process, the treatment is completely bearable. Speak to your laser technician and we can apply some numbing cream if needed.
Laser Thread Vein Removal After Care
Laser thread vein removal is a quick procedure and does not have any downtime afterwards, with many clients having the treatment carried out in their lunch break. As with all treatments, however, we recommend that you take care of the treated area for at least 24hours following your treatment. You may initially experience some localised redness, swelling and slight itchiness following your treatment, but this normally subsides within 24-48 hours. You should avoid creams, oils and perfumed products for 2 days, as well as extremely hot or cold temperatures.
Our team will give you full after care advice during your appointment.
Is Laser Thread Vein Removal Permanent?
Over time, thread veins may appear in new areas so you may need to return for further appointments. How quickly this could happen will vary from person to person. Your laser technician will be able to provide you with more advice.
