On certain occasions you come across clients who are desperate for you to help them and it is the most satisfying knowing you can make them feel better about themselves.

Thread veins or spider veins are one of those skin conditions that can very distressing to clients but importantly are easily treatable. The technical term for “thread veins” is telangiectasia and they are widened small blood vessels near the surface of the skin. Although they can occur anywhere on the body, the nose and cheeks are the most bothersome areas . Unfortunately, make-up does not always  cover the thread veins and this can cause difficulty hiding them.

At Skyn Doctor we use the Duetto MT Laser to emit light which is readily absorbed by the blood vessel, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. The vessel is then quickly absorbed by the body and fairly instant results are achieved which is most satisfying for both the doctor and client.

I recently had a lovely lady who came to see me with this problem. She told me how she had suffered with this problem for many years and was referred by her GP to see a dermatologist on the NHS. Unfortunately, the dermatologist told her they were not able to treat this condition on the NHS and she lived with it begrudgingly. She was delighted when we informed her we could treat the thread veins with our laser. The results were impressive and her confidence received a massive boost.
