Thread veins is a popular service we offer at out clinic near Ilkley
Thread veins occur when the vein dilates and becomes larger making them more visible through the skin. There are a number of factors that can cause their appearance including weather, family history, rosacea and genes. Luckily they are easy to treat with laser therapy with no downtime and quick results.
The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the blood vessel in the thread vein. The laser light disrupts the wall of the blood vessel by a process called photothermolysis, causing resorption of the disrupted within the skin whilst bypassing the normal skin surface.
