Thread Vein Removal In London
Thread veins or spider veins are tiny blood vessels that are running close to the surface of the skin, making red or purple wiggly lines. Thread veins are not broken but rather just slightly dilated. The technical name for them is telangiectasia.
Women are more prone to developing thread veins than men are, women suffer from thread veins about 10% more often than men do. They do not correspond to any underlying medical condition, though they can be deemed as unsightly and can be a warning sign for circulatory problems. They are normally found on the legs, although other parts of the body may become affected too.
Thread veins normally develop as a person ages, this is because as we age our skin and blood vessels become more elastic and the valves that are located in our veins begin to weaken. As the valves weaken, blood flows back down the vein, as blood, like water and everything else always flows downhill which is why thread veins are most common in the legs.
Thread Vein Removal Before And Afters :
The condition can often be caused by hormonal changes associated with menopause and pregnancy, during pregnancy the amount of blood in the body increases significantly, putting more pressure on the veins and the valves. Thread veins can also develop due to too much sun exposure, being overweight, wind exposure, extremes in temperature, some medications or a course of radiotherapy, Sometimes, thread veins just seem to run in families as well.
Many people who have thread veins suffer no serious health problems; they should not affect circulation or cause long-term health issues. If thread veins become problematic or you just feel they are too unsightly, they can be treated in a variety of ways; these include undergoing a phlebectomy, endothermal ablation, compressive stockings, sclerotherapy and of course laser.
IPL works to treat thread veins by firing short bursts of light of different wavelengths onto the affected area. This light is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the thread veins causing those blood vessels damage. Eventually, the veins break down and are reabsorbed by the body. IPL effectively treats thread veins while minimising harmful effects to surrounding healthy tissue.
IPL is effective for:
- Varicose veins
- Thread veins
- Leg veins
- Campbell De Morgan Spots

Great service with a lovely atmosphere, as someone who has psoriasis, im a bit self conscious about my skin but the ladies that work here made me feel so comfortable and relaxed!
Fantastic service, Erica was absolutely brilliant and made what is an awkward, and slightly uncomfortable experience as comfortable as possible.
I highly recommend this clinic for Laser Hair Removal. I have seen great results in a short time frame.
Thread Vein Removal FAQ's
How Is The Treatment Effected?
A smooth gel is applied to the area to be treated and then the IPL applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulses of light are released. The applicator is moved slightly and the whole of the affected area is treated.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
Typically 3 to 5 treatments give the best possible results, although small red veins may be cleared in just one single session.
Why Choose Mix Modality When NDYAG Does The Job?
Mixed Modality increases the effectiveness of thread vein and spider vein treatment
It's less painful
One laser targets pigment whilst the other tightens skin in one go
The sequential delivery of both lasers improves the outcome
Low side effects
Causes Met-haemoglobin which allows for 3 x's more efficiency than just one laser
What Is The Aftercare Regime?
Aloe vera is recommended and the patient must use sunscreen or avoid any sun exposure on the treated area for 4 weeks following treatment. Perfumed products, baths, saunas should be avoided for 12 hours after.
What Equipment Is Used For This Process?
Located in London, Pulse Light Clinic uses the gold standard in vascular treatments (varicose veins, spider veins, thread vein removal) for rapid and easy treatment leaving skin smoother and even-toned. With the option of NDYAG (1064) for darker skin types and either Alexandrite (755nm) OR Mixed Modality for lighter skin types.
How Far Apart Are Treatments?
Laser treatments are spaced up to 12 weeks apart. Your body needs time to repair the cells and then we can treat the same area again if more veins are produced or if the vein needs treating again.
