Red Facial Veins (also known as Spider Veins)

Several conditions cause red veins on your face. Post-menopausal women often experience thinning of skin, which can reveal the appearance of blood vessels.
Thread Veins are tiny blood vessels that run very close to the surface and are usually blue or red in color. Often called Spider Veins due to their appearance, they are fine capillary veins which normally develop as a consequence of age. They also appear quite commonly after pregnancy and are also associated with exposure to the elements and the sun. As well as this the chances of them developing can be influenced by other such lifestyle choices as alcohol consumption excessive sun exposure
Am I suitable for treatment? 
The fairer the skin, the easier the treatment. The best response is seen with small thread veins, spider naevi and rosacea. If there are any areas of broken skin, treatment has to be delayed until the area has completely healed.
What causes thread veins and how can I get rid of them?
Thread veins, or to use the correct medical term, telangiectasia (try and say that after a couple of glasses of wine!), are tiny blood vessels under the skin that have become enlarged or dilated. They are also known as spider veins because they are very fine and radiate out like spokes of a spider's web. They tend to occur on the nose, cheeks and legs. Small thread veins are usually red and larger ones tend to be purple or blue.
What are the causes?
Age - skin changes as we get older and blood vessels become more prominent because the upper skin layer becomes thinner. However, the condition also affects younger people with 20% of 20 year olds suffering from thread veins.
Exposure to the elements - facial thread veins are more common in people who have spent a lot of time outside, for example gardeners and farmers.Prolonged use of steroid cream on the face - this can also be a cause if it has been used for extended periods of time because it thins the skin. 
How does the treatment feel?
No anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable.
Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick
How does it work
It emits specific pulses and frequencies of light that are specific to the red veins they are targeting.This is a reason why experience is essential. The optimum settings are often a matter of experience and judgement
Facial thread veins respond really well to laser treatment.The intense laser pulses cause the vessel walls of the vein to collapse and be absorbed by the body. This is a completely non-invasive treatment and will leave the treated area smooth and completely free of marks and blemishes
Which types of veins can be treated?
Facial thread veins, Rosacea, Spider Naevi, 
Before we commence any treatment we take the time to undertake a detailed consultation with you, making sure that you are comfortable with the process and that you have no pre-existing conditions that could adversely affect it.  You will have a 'patch-test' undertaken, to be sure that your skin does not react adversely to the IPL.If you experience no adverse reactions to this small test we can proceed with the full treatment.
Thank you Kay. You sorted my veins out. Even my makeup looks good now. ~ Sarah Collins
