Commonly known as spider or thread veins due to their thin and web-like appearance, these very small and visible blood vessels occur mainly on the face and legs. Although they pose no medical risk, thread veins can cause feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness due to their prominence on the skin.

What causes Telangiectasia?

This skin condition occurs naturally, however, the appearance of thread veins can be exacerbated by a number of factors including:

  • Skin becoming thinner due to old age
  • Pregnancy
  • Overexposure to the sun
  • Unhealthy habits such as excessive drinking and smoking
  • Standing upright for prolonged periods of time

What treatment options are available?

Face – Nd Yag Laser

IPL, or flashlight therapy, uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of Telangiectasia of the face. The light energy is converted into heat energy, which then causes damage to the target area of visible thread veins.

Is it Painful?

This treatment is non-invasive and non-ablative, meaning it targets the lower layers of skin leaving the top layers unaffected. This allows IPL to have minimal downtime, with patients able to return to work or social activities immediately after the procedure.

What to expect?

During the procedure, the Dermatologist will apply a cold gel to your face before gently moving the smooth glass surface of the IPL machine over the skin to deliver fast pulses of light to the targeted areas. Lasting only for 20 minutes, this treatment is the fast and effective way to lessen the appearance of thread veins and improve the overall condition of the facial skin.
