Thread Veins


Spider veins are also called Telangiectasia. Telangiectasia are defined as red blood vessels smaller than 1 mm in diameter. Venulectasias are blue, sometimes distended above the skin surface, and smaller than 2 mm in diameter.


Treatment with advanced electrolysis

Red veins, thread veins or “dilated capillaries” are visible spidery veins that can be found on the face and body, and tend to be found in the deeper layers of the skin. Red veins are common, and develop as veins lose elasticity and dilate.


Advanced electrolysis treats the vein with a tiny current of electricity to cauterise the area, allowing skin to heal without a scar.


The treatment

A topical anaesthetic is applied for patient comfort. 

Most patients describe it as feeling like  a mild warming sensation. The treatment sessions available are 30 minutes or 60 minutes long, depending on the amoont of thread veins to be treated.


Preparation prior treatment 
You should avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment.


After the treatment
Some patients will experience mild redness or swelling immediately following advanced electrolysis, however gel will be given to help the skin settle. Small scabs will appear that should be left to fall off over the next week or so. Some areas may require more than one treatment, your practitioner will advise you at the consultation. 



Our practitioner is highly skilled, your treatment will

be adapted to suit each individual client.
