Thread vein/dilated capillary removal also Know as Telangietasia

Thread veins, Broken Capillaries or Telangiectasia, are the small red or blue unsightly spider like veins which can appear at various sites on the body, most commonly on the face and legs. There are currently three main methods available to treat thread veins; Laser therapy, Sclerotherapy (for the legs) and then Electrolysis (thermolysis) this has a cauterising effect.

Thread veins are caused by a variety of factors including exposure to the SUN, wind and extremes of temperature. Steroid creams and the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can also induce them. It can also be genetic, some individuals are more prone to develop thread veins than othe

Electrolysis (Thermolysis) can be used to clear most thread veins on the face. Laser therapy is less effective. However, some veins will not respond to either treatment.

Thermolysis Electrolysis is an alternating (High frequency) current, which produces heat at the tip of the needle to cauterise the thread veins. The procedure is uncomfortable, however has an immediate effect, cappillaries disappear while causing minimal damage to the skin surface (epidermis). All that may remain is an erythema (redness) of the skin that disappears to leave a micro-crust (a bit like salt granules) which disappear usually in a matter of weeks.

The treated veins will appear more prominent for a week or two until the healing has taken place. It is so IMPORTANT during the healing  to STAY OUT of direct SUNSHINE to prevent pigmentation forming in the area.
