What are thread veins?
A thread vein treatment is performed when a spider or broken veins are present very close to the surface of the epidermis. They are red, blue, or purple, and are less than 1mm to 2 mm in diameter, unlike much more significant varicose veins. They are not considered a significant medical condition, but they can sometimes ache depending on where they are located.
Anyone can suffer from thread veins, and they can appear on any part of the human body. Although harmless, they can cause distress as the victim often feels timid, especially if the veins are in an exposed portion of the body, such as the face or legs, which people can see.
Some options, such as utilising heat generating technologies such as mild and electric currents have been developed to take care of thread veins, together with the refinement of processes initially designed for treating larger cardiovascular issues.
Is Thread Vein treatment right for me?
Do you miss that bare-legged feeling? Have an anxiety of taking off your shirt? Put the joy back to summertime, wearing skirts and swimming costumes.
With a thread vein treatment, you can quickly and easily leave your body smoother and toned.
There are two types of thread vein treatment options available:
- The first technique is to use a laser to eliminate unsightly veins.
- The second method, known as sclerotherapy, is to inject a solution into the vein right.
What happens once I have the treatment?
Thread vein treatment does not have any downtime, however, as with all treatment, it is recommended that you look after the treated area for at least 24 hours following your procedure.
There could be some localised swelling and mild itchiness after your treatment, which usually subsides within 24-48 hours.
If you encounter redness and warmth on the skin, then apply aloe vera gel to the affected area.
Avoid oils, lotions, irritants, and perfumed products for two days.
Avoid extremes of cold or hot – including baths – for a couple of days.
Use an SPF on the treated area immediately after laser therapy since the skin may be a little more sensitive to UV light.
What to Consider?
Please note that in some instances the veins may initially appear worse before they start to get better.
