Thread Vein Removal
IPL & LASER treatments target imperfections in the skin from sun damage, acne to pigmentation and thread veins. Laser and IPL is used to promote collagen production and aid hydration giving a smoother glowing fresher complexion.
Thread veins, spider veins and broken veins are a very common problem for a lot of people. These veins have the appearance of small fine flat red veins or thicker purplish veins on the surface of the leg or face.
Thread veins are small blood vessels that can, over-time, develop into larger blood vessels if not treated and maintained. Leg thread veins can be removed quickly and easily leaving your legs smoother and even-toned.
