Laser Thread Vein Removal
How it works?
Which thread veins can be treated? Thread veins on all parts of your body can be treated. The most common treatments are for superficial veins in the facial, chest or leg areas. As the treatment relies on absorption of light by the haemoglobin in the blood, the most effective results are seen with light skin. The lighter the skin, the more pronounced the contrast between the vessel and the skin, making treatment easier. However, AW3® systems have pre-programmed settings for different skin colours that deliver the correct energy output for your complexion.
Skin type is a fundamental effecting factor in this treatment as due to the high level of pigment in the skin. Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person and machine to machine. We have a variety of machines including no pain machines and the sensation of each are completely different. No anaesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation as similar to that of a rubber band napping onto the skin. You may find it comforting to cool the skin after the treatment.
