It is not fully understood why they occur but genetics, pregnancy and hormones as well as minor injuries can play a part. They can also be associated with varicose veins and follow on from varicose vein surgery.
There was once a time where you would have to simply accept those thread veins but now Therapie Clinic provides a proven solution to these concerns using Luminette IPL.
The sensation has been most commonly described as a quick flick and heat on the area. The discomfort is moderate and goes away completely after the treatment. There is no real down time, only slight redness on the treated area. This may look like sunburn and will go down shortly after each treatment.
Almost anyone can be treated apart from very dark skin tones or tanned skin. When treating thread veins, only red or purple veins will respond to the IPL. When treating pigmentation, spots that are raised cannot be treated. Also if you are on any particular medication such as Roaccutane, antibiotics and anti-inflametries, or if you are pregnant or breast feeding, the treatment should be postponed.
Each treatment can take between 15-45minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Each treatment should be between 2 and 3 weeks apart and the amount of treatments needed will also depend on how aggressive the area being treated is. We recommend between 3 – 6 treatments.
Treatments start from just £50. The price is best determined by having a consultation to see what will best suit your particular concerns.
