Laser Thread Vein Removal

Additional Info:

Unsightly veins are very distressing. We are therefore pleased to be able to offer a laser thread vein removal treatment that can diminish the appearance of spider or thread veins with lasting results.

Tammy Becker Beauty Salon has invested in the top of the range ND : Yag Laser machine which enables us to provide a treatment for the removal of spider veins and thread veins.  The laser targets and cauterizes the veins, which effectively cuts off the blood supply without damage to the epidermis or surrounding tissue. Once blood is no longer supplied to the vein, it is naturally absorbed and expelled by the body.

The treatment takes around 15 to 30 minutes but may vary depending on the number and size of the veins being treated. For a period of 4-7 days after the treatment, you will most likely experience slight redness and scabbing may occur on the treated area.

Once you have completed the recommended course of treatments, the results should be permanent.

Thread and spider veins are unsightly because they are damaged but are nevertheless still connected to the blood supply, hence their dark, red colouring. The laser energy targets the veins, effectively cutting off the blood supply, after which the vessels are naturally absorbed by the body. We can target even the tiniest of veins without downtime or affecting the surrounding tissue.

The Process

We will meet with you to discuss your options and to examine the areas which concern you. You will be asked about your medical history and you will be able to ask questions about the procedure.

The Procedure

The treatment usually lasts between 15 – 30 minutes but may vary depending on the number and size of the veins being treated. Most people do not feel any pain though some report a slight stinging or mild prickling sensation.  After the treatment, you may also feel some mild discomfort. We will explain this all to you and advise how to manage this.

After the Treatment

You can usually continue with normal activities after treatment but it is recommended that for the first 24 hours you do not visit the gym, the sauna or undertake any activity which will cause overheating. Similarly you should not expose the area to direct sunlight but use a minimum SPF 30 sunscreen.

Number of Treatments

In most cases, a significant improvement is achieved in as few as one to three sessions. In some cases new spider veins may appear, therefore, additional treatments may be necessary.
