Thread veins can be more visibly ageing than lines and wrinkles leading many people to take action to remove them. These are very common, especially in people in their 40s, 50s and 60s. Almost all women will experience thread veins at some point in their life and they are usually associated with underlying vein problems.

A number of factors contribute to the appearance of thread veins on your skin, but they are all related fundamentally to placing pressure on capillaries and finer veins, resulting in damage or expansion. These factors include:

  • Genetic inheritance
  • Ageing
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Leg injuries
  • Sun Damage 
  • Obesity
  • Alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Hormonal changes

Thread Vein Removal 

Red veins or broken blood vessels is another name for thread veins, clinically referred to as telangiectasia rosacea. Broken blood vessels are tiny blood vessels that start to become visible near to the surface of the skin. They often appear as streaks or blotches on the skin and are normally red or blue in colour on the face, nose and décolletage. The diode laser treatment used in treatment results in significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment.  In some instances treatment may need to be repeated 3 months apart.
