Spider Veins

Medical grade options for effective laser & IPL spider vein & telangiectasia treatment

Spider Veins & Telangiectasia Treatment

Facial red veins, spider veins or telangiectasia are tiny blood vessels (capillaries) which run close to the skin’s surface. They look like thin red or occasionally purple or blue threads that often occur around the nose, across the cheeks and chin. The resulting red, web-shaped appearance gives them their common name, spider veins. Vascular lesions emerge when the blood vessels become enlarged which causes the veins to appear broken.

At The Lynton Clinic, we offer a targeted solution for the clearance of red veins. (See also treatment for broken capillaries & vessels.)

Spider Vein Laser Treatment Summary
spider vein removal

Red veins are caused by overexposure to the sun, drastic changes in weather, changes in pressure, excessive alcohol consumption, environmental irritants, rosacea, hormonal changes, or simply genetics. Depending on the type of vessel we may choose to treat with advanced medical-grade IPL or utilise Nd: YAG. Following a thorough consultation, we will choose the best technology for your treatment.

Key Facts:

  1. Spider veins can occur even if you’re young
  2. The most typical cause of unwanted facial veins is the normal thinning of skin that comes with age. 
  3. Women are more commonly affected than men
  4. Heredity and genetics are a common cause of facial veins

FAQs

How does the treatment work?

Light energy is applied to the skin where it is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

Which types of veins can be treated?

Most red skin lesions, including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, and port wine stains, can be treated very successfully. Depending on the lesions, leg vessels can also respond well to treatment.

How is the treatment carried out?

The light applicator is placed on the skin and
a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. During treatment, protective eyewear will be provided.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Treatment is suitable for most people. Best results are obtained for those with fair skin, and there is less chance of side effects.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.

Are there any side effects?

After treatment the area may feel warm for a few hours. Rarely, some delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and slightly swollen for up to 48 hours. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

How long does each treatment take?

Treatments typically take from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of lesion.

How many treatments are necessary?

Typically 3 to 5 treatments are needed for optimum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Repeat treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks.

What is the consultation procedure?

Prior to treatment you must fi rst undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

I’ve had two treatments of IPL so far for sun damage and pigmentation spots on my face and the difference is dramatic! I’m no longer conscious about not wearing make-up and my friends and family say I’m glowing! I’m having a 3rd treatment which will complete my transformation!

Jayne Cordley-Hennessey

I have had a course of laser hair removal on my back at The Lynton Clinic, having suffered with in-growing hairs now for years I wish I had found this treatment earlier. I no longer have to suffer with this problem and I also have hardly any hair left that I have to deal with. I found them to be very professional and would highly recommend this clinic and treatment to anyone

My cellulite had always bothered me. Over time it has got worse to the point where I no longer wanted to wear shorts or skirts. I now feel so much better and I have the confidence now to wear what I want.

Kirsty was very warm and welcoming when I arrived, as always. Like all the practitioner at the Lynton Clinic, Kirsty made me feel relaxed and confident in her knowledge and experience.

Like all the practitioner at the Lynton Clinic, Kirsty made me feel relaxed and confident in her knowledge and experience. Although there are many other treatment centres near my home in Stockport for Facial Thread Vein removal, I would dream of going anywhere other than Lynton for treatment.
