Laser Vein Treatment


What are thread veins?

Thread veins, sometimes also called spider veins, are tiny veins just underneath the surface of the skin that have become dilated and appear red, blue or purple in colour. Thread veins are harmless and do not usually cause medical problems, although many people find them unsightly and they can sometimes cause an aching sensation. They often occur on the legs, but can also appear on the face.

How IPL Laser treatment works

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment works by emitting an intense pulse of light which is absorbed by the skin, breaking down the thread vein. Cell repair is then stimulated, creating new, smooth and blemish-free skin. 


During Treatment

During treatment, we’ll apply a cold gel to the area to be treated. Next, one of our practitioners will pass the IPL handset over the surface of skin to deliver very precise and targeted pulses of light to the treatment area. Most people tolerate the treatment extremely well and some even find it painless. Should you feel any discomfort during treatment, our practitioners will always do all that they can to make you feel at ease and comfortable through-out.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime with IPL laser treatment for thread veins. You can return to your usual daily activities immediately after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

IPL is effective after just one treatment, however more treatments may be required.


Results are visible immediately after the first treatment and in most cases are permanent.
