Leg & Facial Thread Vein Removal
Unwanted vascular conditions such as thread and spider veins and other minor blood vessel disorders can now be treated using laser therapy without the need for complicated surgery with no downtime!
What are Thread Veins?
Thread veins (also known as spider veins, broken veins and capillary veins) are small red, blue or purple veins that usually appear near the surface of the skin on the face and legs. They often present in a spider web pattern, and are caused by the backup of blood.
Ageing makes you more prone to thread veins and leg veins. Other factors such as hormonal changes during pregnancy and the menopause, excess weight, inactivity and exposure to the sun also makes you more susceptible to thread veins. Thread veins can often be more noticeable than lines and wrinkles. Leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive at worst.
Thread Vein Laser Therapy
At CareforSkin, we treat thread veins using the most advanced laser system without the need for surgery or sclerotherapy. Our Cynosure Elite + laser emits light energy in a series of short pulses to the vein which are absorbed and causes the vessel to coagulate, which the body then naturally breaks down. The procedure is completely safely and without causing harm to the surrounding tissue.
Some thread veins disappear immediately but may re-occur a few days later. However these will be less visible. After a course of treatment these vessels will disappear and are not likely to reoccur. Although the results are long lasting for several years, if thread veins re-appear a maintenance course may be required.
A course of three to four treatments are recommended for maximum results. However this does depend on your condition and treatment times can differ. Treatments are relatively quick and can take just as little as 10 mins depending the size of the area being treated.
Fabulous results – I feel more confident & my skin has a new energy about it!
Really love the results. Its put a smile back on my face again!
Prices start from as little as £40 per treatment for facial veins, and £70 for leg veins.

Thread vein laser therapy & how it works?
We use the state of the art CynoSure Elite + laser. The lasers works by targeting the unwanted vessels at the surface of the skin with short pulses of laser light energy. No harm is caused to the surrounding tissue.
The laser causes the blood vessel walls to collapse in a process called photothermolysis. The body’s natural waste process then carries away all the broken down blood vessels. This results in the skin looking clearer and less red.
How long does the procedure take?
This can take as little as 10 mins depending the on the size of the area to be treated.
When will I see results?
We recommend that you have three to four treatments for maximum results. However this does depend on your condition and treatment times can differ depending on individuals.
Who will perform the procedures?
A qualified doctor or therapist will perform the procedure. This will be followed up with a post treatment review at 2-3 weeks.
