Thread veins are very common affecting around 30% of the population and can affect both men and women. The exact cause of thread veins (also called spider veins) is not fully understood but they can be hereditary and associated with changing hormones and exposure to extreme weather. Sadly they can look very unsightly and be a common reason for people to cover up in the sunshine or feel unable to wear shorts, dresses or skirts and be comfortable.
Fortunately with advances in technology, we are able to use IPL treatment to effectively reduce and remove thread veins across all areas of the body. The most common treatments are for thread veins on the legs, chest and face.
The number of treatments depends on the body area and the severity of the thread vein but in our experience most patients require 1-4 treatments and these are timed about one month apart.
Like all of our treatments, IPL Thread Vein removal is subject to a free consultation and a patch test prior to treatment so get in touch with Hannah today to discuss how Thread Vein removal can get rid of those ugly veins for good.
