We offer advanced Laser Vein Removal treatments to help you say goodbye to visible spider veins. As a highly effective treatment, you can expect to reduce the appearance of veins dramatically, leaving you with beautiful vein free looking skin. Spider veins are extremely common and can be caused by many things, such as: genes, hormones, pregnancy, smoking and exposure to varying temperatures. We most commonly treat these conditions on the face and legs.

Laser vein treatment works by using a specific wavelength light over the skin to heat the blood in the small red surface capillaries. Once the red veins have been treated, the vein will show visible signs of damage. By damaging the capillary walls, gradually, over two to six weeks, the capillary breaks down and the body’s lymphatic system will remove it.

The number of treatments will vary according to the severity of the veins. On average, between 3 to 6 treatments are needed. Treatments are done on a timed basis, and this will be determined at your consultation, depending on the number of veins to be treated.

When planning your appointment ensure you have no events where the area to be treated will be exposed for 2 – 4 weeks after treatment. We recommend that you use aloe vera or witchhazel to help heal and hydrate the skin. SPF is also recommended to areas that may be exposed to protect skin from the UV rays, such as Heliocare. We also recommend that you avoid any strenuous exercises, swimming, steam rooms or saunas, for a couple of days following treatment.

What are thread, spider and varicose veins?

Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins. They often protrude beyond the skin’s surface and can be dark blue, red or skin-coloured in appearance. Thread veins (or spider veins, as they are also called) are like varicose veins but are much smaller and as such require different treatment. Spider veins are veins that branch off others and appear to have a spider-like appearance.

What causes thread veins?

Thread (or spider) veins tend to develop as we age. They appear when our skin and blood vessels lose elasticity. Hormonal changes, due to pregnancy or menopause, for example, can lead to thread veins. Standing for prolonged amounts of time and frequent flying can also cause thread veins to form.

Lifestyle choices can also be an influential factor. For example, too much exposure to the sun, wind or extreme temperatures can cause spider veins to develop. Unfortunately, thanks to your genes, you can even inherit your family’s susceptibility to these little veins.

Tips for dealing with thread veins

There are several changes you can make to help prevent varicose veins from forming or becoming worse:

  • Try to avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time. Make sure you take breaks during the day and try to walk more if you have an office job. Likewise, if you have a really active day, remember to rest
  • Try to avoid crossing your legs
  • Take part in regular physical activities to help your blood move through your veins
  • Wear compression hosiery when flying
  • Seek professional advice from one of our expert practitioners

How we can treat your thread veins

Laser and IPL

We can perform highly effective laser or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) vein removal treatments. They both dramatically reduce the appearance of your veins. Laser is used to treating the veins on the legs and face and IPL is used to treat the veins on the upper body.

Advanced Electrolysis

We can also provide Advanced Electrolysis, which treats the vein with a tiny current of electricity to cauterise the area.


Sclerotherapy is another alternative. During this treatment, we inject the veins with a solution called fibroin. It collapses the veins before the body naturally flushes them away. The results are usually immediate and one treatment is often enough to achieve a highly satisfying result, however, more sessions may be needed for larger areas of vessels.
