It is a common skin complaint and one which, here at S-Thetics Clinic, we treat with our advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacial technology.

Effective in treating both superficial and deep skin issues, the treatment precisely targets the specific area affected by thread veins.

Using the Icon MaxG, this treatment harnesses the IPL laser to create wavelengths of specifically filtered light to target haemoglobin (red blood cells in blood vessels).

Delivering low energy light to where the imperfections are found, the skin absorbs this energy, breaks it up and causes the veins to fade.

And that’s not all – the light energy also increases the production of collagen in the skin, which helps to improve tightness and texture of the skin over time for a bright, healthy complexion.

Results are both immediate and progressive as over time skin the skin continues to create new collagen, making it feel softer and smoother, with a brighter appearance and more even skin tone.
