Red Vein Treatment

Red Vein Treatment

These are not broken capillaries but rather permanently dilated capillaries. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and become permanently dilated.

There are a number of causes including: ageing, hereditary, pregnancy, smoking, energetic sports, extremes of temperature, harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility.

Blood Spots- These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised and are common on the trunk or torso and particularly the midriff back or front.

Spider Naevus- is a central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider.

The tip of a fine needle is introduced along the line of the capillary and a tiny energy current is discharged. This 'dries up' and destroys the vessel which often disappears as it is being treated. Further treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the problem, usually at monthly intervals.

A consultation is required before treatment can proceed.
