Thread Vein Removal Treatment near me
Also referred to as spider veins, thread veins are commonly found on the face and legs, but they can appear anywhere on the body. This condition can develop in anyone at any age and can be treated quickly and effectively with the right advice and treatment. Facial thread veins are not dangerous, but they can affect your confidence if left untreated. In rare cases, thread veins can be a sign of an underlying medical condition. You will gain more effective results when treated early, so it is always best to seek the advice of a medical practitioner.
What is facial thread veins?
Facial thread veins are tiny blood vessels that run close to the skin’s surface. They look like thin red or occasionally purple or blue lines. They appear when blood vessels become enlarged, which causes the veins to appear broken. The medical term for them is telangiectasia.
What is the causes of facial thread veins?
There are several causes, including overexposure to the sun, drastic weather changes, excessive alcohol consumption, hormonal changes such as pregnancy, sudden changes in pressure such as severe vomiting or sneezing, or they may be genetic. In addition, people with rosacea often suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed.
How does laser treatment work?
Laser treatment is a safe, effective way to banish thread veins. The light from the laser is directed at the veins causing them to heat up very quickly. This heat will cause the vein to break down and collapse, presenting some bruising on the skin’s surface. The damaged vein gradually dissolves and is removed through the body’s natural immune system, leaving the skin smooth and clear.
What is the treatment process, and how many treatments will I need?
Some clients see results after one treatment, but we would recommend a course of three for maximum results. We allow four weeks between each treatment, so a course of treatment would take place over three months.

Thread Vein Removal Pricing
The prices shown are starting prices, and the exact cost will be confirmed in consultation, where treatment options, suitability and expected results will be discussed.
How long will the treatment Last?
Crawley Beauty Salon clients report a 75% visible reduction with just one to three treatments. This is a semi-permanent treatment because the treatment may, in some cases, shrink but not obliterate the thread veins. If this were to happen, the thread vein might reappear in time.
Is this treatment right for me?
During your consultation, your doctor will discuss your suitability for this treatment. For example, due to how the laser distinguishes colour, it may not be suitable for people with a darker skin tone. Also, you cannot have this treatment if you have a suntan.
Is thread vein removal safe?
Yes, it is a completely safe and proven treatment. The state-of-the-art lasers target the unwanted veins and do not affect the surrounding skin.
Where On My Body Can I Have Treatment?
We offer facial thread vein removal on the face and neck. You can also have treatment for unwanted thread veins on your legs. Find out more about leg thread vein removal.
How can I prevent facial thread veins?
There are several things you can do to avoid facial thread veins. First, avoid high temperatures in saunas, spas, or scorching weather. Also, limit excessive exposure to the sun and wear a high factor sun cream every day throughout the year.
Is the thread vein treatment painful?
It can be a little uncomfortable but not painful. If you want to have a break from the treatment, your practitioner will pause. We can also apply a numbing cream before the treatment on the area.
Is there any preparation before the treatment?
Yes. We currently offer a Facial Thread Veins Treatment Programme. This consists of three different products for pre and post-treatment. You will receive a 40% discount when purchased with a treatment course. Before your treatment, you should protect your skin with a high factor sun cream. In addition, we recommend using Sunscreen SPF 30. You should also avoid using fake tan before your treatment.
What are the side effects?
After treatment, you may experience some bruising or swelling, but this should subside within 72 hours.
What is the aftercare procedure?
After your treatment, your doctor will give you all of the aftercare advice you need. We recommend using Avéne Thermal Water Spray; this instantly soothing spray is the perfect solution to cool the skin and calm irritation after treatment. We also recommend using Aloe Vera Gel. Aloe Vera is a natural botanical with proven hydrating, soothing and healing properties. This soft gel cools whilst protecting the skin from free radicals and encourages healthy skin cell regeneration.
What other aftercare advice should I be aware of?
- Products containing Vitamin A should not be used for three days before your treatment.
- Avoid alcohol or aspirin 24 hours before your treatment due to the increased risk of bruising.
- Avoid excessive heat such as saunas, steam rooms or aerobic activity for three days after treatment.
· Do not use exfoliators or products with Vitamin A until the skin has completely healed.
