Having lots of tiny thread veins on your face can give you a reddened, uneven complexion. For some people, this can impact on confidence and self-esteem. Covering the veins with make-up can often exacerbate the problem, which is why many people seek a longer-term solution.

We use cutting-edge cosmetic laser technology to target those unwanted red facial veins and it’s usually possible to reduce or eliminate them altogether. Because the equipment we use enables us to work with precision, the healthy vein-free adjacent skin is left unharmed.

The treatment is quick, safe and can be an effective option for a much clearer, healthier-looking complexion.

  • Fast and noticeable results are often achieved
  • Can eliminate unsightly red facial veins
  • Tends to reveal a younger, healthier complexion
  • Gives most clients a lasting solution

How does laser treatment on facial veins work?

We use a precision laser that bypasses the healthy surface skin to reach the swollen blood vessels causing your thread veins. The laser causes the vessel walls to collapse and later dissolve within your body.

Why do I need to have a test spot performed?

We conduct a test spot on all clients receiving any kind of laser treatment, to ensure there is no adverse reaction. For compliance with regulations and the safety of our clients we require to carry out a test spot at least 24 hrs prior to any treatment, and after annual services/maintenance of our equipment is carried out.

Our lasers are serviced and continually maintained to ensure our equipment always runs at optimum levels, and that we provide a beneficial service to all our clients. Therefore, depending on the timing of your laser treatments, you may be asked to attend the clinic for more than your initial test spot. The laser technician will provide further details to you.

What happens during the treatment?

During the procedure, we will give you protective eye shields to wear. A numbing gel is then applied to the areas to be treated. Using a handheld device for correct positioning, the laser is delivered in short bursts to protect your skin. Many people say this treatment is painless but you may feel a slight pinprick sensation, similar to having a hair plucked.

The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

When will I see results?

With laser facial vein removal, the results tend to be immediate and, depending on the severity of the problem, you may only need one treatment. However, if you have a complex network of facial veins, we may need to see you several times. In the two weeks following your treatment, you should continue to see improvements in the treated area. New vessels may occur in the future; this can be caused by factors such as sun exposure and genetics.

How often can I have it done?

We would normally recommend approximately two to four weeks between treatments to give the broken down vein time to absorb and to let us fully assess the outcomes from each treatment.

During your initial consultation, we will carefully analyse your facial veins and outline what we feel will be the best treatment plan for you.

What can I expect immediately after treatment?

As the laser energy is applied, the enlarged blood vessel will collapse and disappear. Several seconds later, this will be replaced with a slight redness which will fade within a few days.
