Thread veins are permanently dilated capillaries. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated.

What causes Facial Thread Veins?

There are numerous causes including: ageing, sun-damage, hereditary, pregnancy, trauma e.g. The rubbing of spectacles and smoking. Energetic sports, temperature extremes, harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility are also common causes. They are commonly seen in a maturing ‘English rose’ complexion.

How do I remove them?

Advanced Cosmetic Procedures is a simple and safe method of successfully removing Facial Thread Veins and other skin blemishes.

The tip of a fine, small probe (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the area to be treated and a tiny energy current is discharged. This dries up and destroys the blood vessel which often disappears as it is being treated.

Facial Thread Veins can usually be removed in just a few treatments here at The Skin Health Clinic. Further treatments may be necessary depending on the area to be treated. Results are instantaneous, pleasing and life changing for many.
