Thread Vein Removal
PRICES FROM - £120
Here at Art Skin Clinic we offer a wide range of vascular treatments and thread vein removal, helping to reduce facial vascular lesions.
These cosmetic blemishes are especially annoying, as they are almost impossible to conceal with makeup, and often occur in highly noticeable places, such as the nostrils, cheeks, and legs.
With our innovative laser treatments, fine superficial vessels can be reduced in appearance remarkably. Contact us to arrange a consultation.
What kind of vascular conditions can we treat?
As we age, blood vessels in the skin can become damaged and come to the surface, presenting as rosacea or spider veins. It used to be very complicated and painful to treat such a problem, but laser treatment has proven both highly effective and largely pain free in dealing with this.
It can also be used to treat dark spots, known as melasma, post acne scars, and telangiectasia, and with thread vein removal.
Cutting edge treatments
We use the German engineered QuadroStar PRO, to deliver precision laser treatments to affected areas of the skin, where vascular lesions occur. We use both the QuadroStar PRO Yellow and the QuadroStar PRO Green, which are 577 and 532nm respectively.
The yellow and green wavelengths are absorbed by the blood vessels, while the water surrounding the vessel does not absorb this light, which means the skin around the area itself remains largely untouched and pain free. However, the annoying vascular lesions are almost completely removed.
Remove leg lesions
Leg veins are a cosmetic problem where this treatment is especially good at solving the issue. For spider veins, the QuadroStart PRO Green or Yellow is highly effective. For larger ectatic vessels, deeper in the skin, a longer wavelength is needed.
In this instance the MeDioStar NeXT Family diode lasers are very well suited. With wavelengths in the infrared range, the blood readily absorbs the light, while the water in the surrounding skin does not, allowing the light to heat and destroy the vascular lesion while protecting the surrounding area of skin.
(An area could need multiple treatments to be removed completely)
