Laser treatment for broken veins

Laser treatment for broken (thread) veins

Whatever has caused them – whether it’s sun exposure, age, genetics or hormones for example – visible leg and facial veins are bothersome at best, unattractive at worst.

Fortunately, at Skin Perfection we have the option of using either laser or IPL treatments to quickly and effectively treat your broken veins, wherever they are – on your face, legs or anywhere else on your body.

We will help you to improve the look of your skin and help you feel a whole lot better about yourself, in as few as one to three visits.

Choosing the right treatment

During your consultation, your Skin Perfection practitioner will check your skin tone, the veins and the diameter of the veins to see which treatment you are most suitable for and will respond best to, so that you get the results you are looking for.

See below for more information about how the treatments work, prices and patient reviews.

Your questions answered

How does laser treatment for broken or thread veins work?

At Skin Perfection, we treat thread veins with either IPL or laser, depending on the size of the veins and your skin type.

You may need several treatments and the full results may take up to 6 months to develop.

After 6 months, results should be permanent unless, of course, you develop more broken veins elsewhere.

Is it painful?

The treatment can feel quite hot but should not be painful. You can get slight swelling after the treatment and a little bruising, but this will subside after a few days.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of treatment sessions needed can vary, but most patients start to see a reduction in visible veins after just two or three sessions.

Who carries out the treatments?

All our staff are highly skilled and trained with the knowledge to consult, test and treat according to our company's protocols, which have been set by our medical professionals and Laser Protection Advisor. Collectively, we have over 20 years' experience of treating patients.

It is also important to note we are registered with the Westminster Council as a registered skin and laser practice: we hold a special treatment license which enables us to carry out such procedures safely and effectively to all our customers. Click here for more about our laser practitioners.

Do I need a test patch?

Yes: before any laser procedure your skin specialist will consult with you and test the laser on your skin and veins to make sure you are suitable for the treatment.
