When you don't want to be VEIN anymore!
Thread veins, spider veins or telangiectasia, are damaged veins and broken or ruptured capillaries just below the surface of the skin. Once they are damaged, they are particularly difficult to repair naturally on their own, but easy to treat with IPL Laser Photorejuvenation and LED Light Phototherapy vein treatments.
As you age your skin loses collagen and becomes thinner, so these small red and sometimes purple veins become extremely prominent when the vein walls dilate. They are visible through the skin when veins expand. Prominent spider and thread veins can be inherited (genetics), but are often caused by long term sun exposure, pregnancy, Rosacea, alcohol, smoking and standing for long periods.

Vein Treatments with IPL Photorejuvenation and LED Phototherapy
Optimal Vascular Vein Treatment IPL Laser Skin Photorejuvenation + LED Light Phototherapy
Before undertaking your first *clinical skin treatment for your veins and vascular issues (*IPL Laser Photorejuvenation or LED Light Phototherapy) we will require you to undertake a Skin Consultation with our highly trained Skin Specialist who can identify the type of acne you may be suffering from and recommend the best course of action. All consultations and treatments are conducted in our well equipped, safe, private, comfortable and stylish clinic where our Skin Specialists are able to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
During the consultation, a detailed assessment will be conducted, along with a patch test where required if you are undertaking IPL Laser Photorejuvenation or LED Light Phototherapy. A personal programme will be developed to suit your skin requirements. Following the consultation and a successful patch test (where necessary), you will be able to start your course of prescribed treatments.
Our trained Skin Specialists offer vein treatments which will reduce vascular blemishes such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread and spider veins and red spots found on the face and other areas with minimal downtime or risk. Our recommended treatment to effectively and instantly treat facial vascular blemishes, broken or collapsed capillaries, spider & thread veins, telangiectasia, red spots, reticular veins, capillary damage and cherry angiomas is with IPL Laser Phototherapy treatments in conjunction with LED Light Phototherapy for skin stimulation and healing.
Treatments for vascular issues must be tailored to the individual and take into account your skin ethnicity, the cause of the vascular issue and your desired outcome.
IPL Laser Skin Photorejuvenation technology emits multiple wavelengths of light into the skin, which are absorbed by the walls of the blood vessel heating the damaged vessel, effectively shattering the capillary lesion. This causes them to collapse and disappear over time. IPL is most effective on small veins close to the surface of the skin.
The shattered blood vessel is then removed by the body’s natural processes, providing dramatic improvements in the appearance of unwanted vascular issues as well as age spots, sun spots, sun damage, freckles, rosacea and more. With the innovative IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment you can gently reverse the signs of vascular issues without surgery or needles.
IPL Laser Skin Photorejuvenation and LED Light Phototherapy treatments both stimulate the body’s natural healing process to assist in the removal of treated veins and blood vessels, whilst also promoting the natural production of collagen, which leaves skin smoother and more evenly toned, firms the skin and reduces skin pore size, and results in a more youthful looking skin. The same treatments can also be used effectively on the neck, chest and hands as well as arms and legs.
A spider vein, also known as telangiectasias or vascular lesion, is formed by abnormally large or numerous blood vessels resulting in a red appearance of the skin. Small vessels commonly referred to as ‘spider veins’ (telangiectasia), are the most common vascular lesions. Usually they measure only a few millimetres in diameter and they can develop anywhere on the body, but commonly on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin, often in a “spider web” pattern.
Reticular veins are located slightly deeper in the skin, and appear as small, flat bluish veins, often appearing behind the knees. The thin veins associated with spider veins or reticular veins are sometimes known as “thread” veins.
Spider veins, much like varicose veins can surface at any time, and several factors contribute. The most common cause is genetics, usually a parent or grandparent. Oestrogen also promotes the growth of spider veins. This is why more women than men have spider veins. Lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise make a large difference, with a sedentary lifestyle and high fat diet being major causes. Sun exposure can cause spider veins in particular, and as people age, varicose vein problems are more likely due to weakening vein walls.
Estimates indicate that unsightly veins are a common problem for more than 60% of the adult population!
A treatment cycle of 4 – 6 treatments of IPL Laser Photorejuvenation combined with LED Light Phototherapy, spaced two to three weeks apart is usually required to reach your best possible outcome.
The benefits of IPL Photorejuvenation treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk. IPL Photorejuvenation can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and high satisfaction.
NOTE: For all IPL treatments – exposure to the sun for long periods (10+ mins constant), for a total of four (4) weeks before and four (4) weeks after any IPL treatment must be avoided.

Because IPL uses many wavelengths of light at the same time, it is most effective on veins that are visible at the surface of the skin. Your skin colour (Fitzpatrick Scale) can affect how much light is absorbed, which can also affect your results. Best results are obtained on skin types I to IV.
The procedure is performed in our clinic and takes 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the location and number of spider veins to be treated. You may also need to undergo multiple treatment sessions four to six weeks apart. The treated veins should fade after several weeks.
During the procedure you may feel hot snaps or a pinching sensation caused by the light pulses. Most people do not find this painful and the pain dissipates immediately. For more information regarding IPL Laser Skin Photorejuvenation treatments click here.
You will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after each IPL treatment. You may have some redness or bruising on the skin near the treated areas. This should last only a few hours to days.
If the treated area feels warm after the procedure, apply an ice pack for a few minutes at a time until the heat goes away. You should avoid hot showers, saunas and baths for the rest of the day. You should also avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight for three to four weeks, and always apply a 30+ SPF sunscreen.
No, the treated spider veins should not return. However, new spider veins can still develop, especially if you have other underlying vein problems, such as varicose veins or venous insufficiency. Spider veins that develop after IPL will require additional treatment to resolve.
Aside from IPL Laser and LED treatments for vascular issues, we suggest you try our Aspect RedLess Facial treatment to deal with calming the skin and reducing facial redness.
Rosacea and vascular issues can be a serious problem that effects both men and women of all ages. The Aspect RedLess Facial is a clinically proven and efficient botanical treatment that purifies the skin while promoting healing. The deep purification helps to balance and tone your skin and address Rosacea and vascular issues at the source, calming inflammation and reducing redness.

There are many medications, drugs and some herbal remedies available at the moment which may cause the skin to become very sensitive to light. Whether these drugs are taken by mouth or applied to the skin, a reaction can occur. This reaction is called “Drug-Induced Photo-sensitivity” therefore, it is very important you provide information relating to any drugs which you are currently using.
Both IPL and Laser treatments, when conducted by a qualified and experienced therapist, are effective and safe, however it is imperative for your own safety that you be truthful and open in your consultation with our Skin Specialist when you seek treatment. In case of doubt we will refer you for medical advice prior to treatment.
