What are thread veins?

Thread veins are small, unsightly clusters of purple or red veins that appear most commonly on the face or legs.

Why consider thread vein removal?

Thread veins are difficult to cover up with makeup. It seriously limits ones clothing choice. Laser thread vein removal is an excellent treatment to permanently reduce and remove thread veins simply and easily.

What does the consultation involve?

The treatment is completely individualized; at your free consultation, the specialist practitioner will consider your skin type, location of the veins and desired result and develop a personalized treatment plan for you.

How is the treatment carried out?

There are multiple ways to remove thread veins. The right treatment option for you will be discussed fully at your free consultation.It depends on the area from where the thread veins are to be removed, age, medical history etc.

a. Intense Pulse Light


After applying a desensitizing gel, our precision laser heats the affected, vein/s to a very high temperature; this causes the vein to be destroyed. The remains of the vein are then reabsorbed by the body. Because the lasers are very precise, the surrounding skin and tissue will not be damaged. As the veins that cause thread veins are only superficial, the circulation in the area is not affected. Laser thread vein treatment is slightly uncomfortable, with clients reporting that it feels like “pin pricks.” Most people do not find this a problem, but if you are concerned, you may wish to take simple analgesia prior to your treatment.


The treatment normally takes between 15 minutes and 45 minutes and we recommend between 3 and 6 treatments, 6 weeks apart to fully treat the area and optimize results.

b. Sclerotherapy

This involves an injection into the blood vessel, this is done using a very fine needle. With this method, we can treat a number of veins in single session. Some veins might need a second session. Sclerotherapy cannot be used on the face.
