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.

Customer Testimonials

Being of mature years I have always tried to find ways of improving the quality and look of my skin, finding The Lynton Clinic and discussing with very professional and honest staff what results I was looking for I decided to go for Fractional Laser and Skin Tightening treatments. I have found that my skin has tightened and has a lovely natural glow. My friends are all complimenting (even the fellows) on how I am looking. It makes me happy and bouncy with a feeling of well-being. Now I do not mind having my picture taken before I used to hate it. Thank you all at Lynton!

Loved my experience here, Emma was so helpful and my treatment was amazing! So delighted with the results from the laser hair removal so far, I used to shave everyday and now I shave once a week at most

I highly recommend The Lynton Clinic as the treatments are given by highly skilled and professional staff. I had laser treatment for tattoo removal by Kirsty Turnbull and I also have other treatments at the clinic. After visiting the Clinic on a number of different occasions the experience is always the same. You are made to feel relaxed,everything is fully explained and the treatments are of the highest standard. The staff really care about their clients and want to give you the best experience possible. I am thrilled with the outcome of my tattoo removal and am nearing the end of this treatment. I can't say enough positive things about Kirsty and The Lynton Clinic.

Visited the clinic a while back for some advice and treatment on some pigmentation I was suffering from. They were informative and helpful at all times and helped me towards correcting my problem. The clinic was always immaculate and the staff were friendly and really know what they are doing, would definitely recommend.

I have had several fractional laser sessions at Lynton Lasers on what was very severe post acne scarring to the whole of my back. The scarring varied in severity from slight pitting to large patches (2cm squares) of hypertrophic scars. These scars were approximately 18 years old and something I had just learnt to live with. I never really believed anything could be done about them. We started the course of laser with a curious mind to see what results could be achieved but with very little expectation. The treatments were quick and it is absolutely tolerable. There was some sunburn type of heat to the area afterwards but pretty much completely gone after an hour or so. The area then scabbed and I kept it heavily moisturised with a petroleum for about a week. The results have gradually been improving over a 6 month period with in this time I probably had about 3 treatments. The results have been outstanding, the scarring is still visible and will never disappear completely but the difference has been life changing. The confidence I feel to wear clothing and swimwear that reveal that area of my body without feeling embarrassed is amazing. I am hooked and am now curious as what else laser machines can achieve for me!!! Many thanks to the Lynton Team.
