Thread veins, or spider veins, are dark blood vessels that are rather prominent in appearance. Sitting close to the surface of the skin, they are most commonly seen in the facial areas and the legs. As we age, the elasticity of our blood vessels increases while the valves in the veins start to weaken. This often causes breakages, resulting in the characteristically apparent thread-like veins.




At Aesthetics Lab we use the most advanced IPL system on the market to treat spider veins the light generates heat in the veins, which causes the walls of the vein to collapse and form scar tissue. Eventually, these veins will be reabsorbed by the body and fade away after several weeks. It is exceptionally effective for treating varicose veins and cherry angiomas as well.

Our IPL machine incorporates a cooling system, known as the Sapphire Spot, which minimises any discomfort during the treatment.
