Thread Veins and Vascular Lesions
Thread veins are a common problem and can occur as a result of thinning skin due to ageing or illness, from an increase in blood pressure in the area which could simply be from over exertion, or possibly from trauma, or can be present from birth, particularly in the case of venous lakes, and cherry angioma.

In the case of thread veins and broken capillaries on the face, we are able to use either laser or IPL to reduce, and even remove these permanently in as little as one treatment depending upon the condition of the skin. For thread veins on other parts of the body, particularly leg veins and capillaries, which can be much deeper, this would require laser, and in all cases would be subject to carrying-out a patch-test to determine how effective the treatment will be.
In the case of other vascular lesions such as venous lakes and cherry angiomas, treatment would depend upon size and location, and as with all treatments this would be established at consultation.
