There are a variety of reasons for thread veins, including hereditary factors, smoking, sun exposure, heat, alcohol and hormonal changes. At Complete Lasercare we use Veinwave™ for the treatment of broken veins (telangectasia). It is particularly effective on facial veins, including facial redness, rosacea and nose veins. Several treatments may be necessary, with further treatment possible 3 – 4 weeks following the initial treatment.
Veinwave works by thermocoagulation and is relatively painless. Skin may be red for a short time afterwards, but there is really no down-time. The treatment can be applied to all skin types and is suitable for both men and women.
Please contact us to arrange a consultation, where we would be happy to assess your suitability for treatment.
