Thread Vein Removal
Thread veins (telangiectasia) are small superficial red, purple or blue veins which may appear anywhere on the body, but most commonly on the face and legs. Thread veins occur when the vein dilates and become large enough to be visible through the skin.
Laserase Croydon offers two different laser systems, Intense pulsed light (IPL) and long pulsed Nd: YAG together with sclerotherapy to ensure optimal results. The short wavelength intense pulsed light (IPL) system is used to eliminate superficial thread veins and Rosacea. The long wavelength Nd: YAG treats both superficial and deep red, purple or blue veins including haemangiomas and arteriovenous malformations. Sclerotherapy is used to treat larger vessels by injecting a sclerosing solution with a very fine needle directly into the blood vessel.
The laser light is absorbed by the blood inside the vein. This heats up the wall of the vein which collapses, and the vein then dissolves.
Sclerotherapy involves the injection of sclerosant which collapses the vein. The vein then dissolves.A series of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended at monthly intervals for leg veins. Treatment of facial veins is easier and often only 1 or 2 treatments are required.Redness and swelling of the treated area may occur (like sunburn).
Superficial blistering, bruising or crusting may rarely develop, which settles within a few days.
Occasionally, there may be the formation of brown lines or spots at the treatment sites, due to haemosiderin (iron stored in the blood) deposition. These too are temporary.
There is also a very small risk of small ulcers at the injection site, allergy, pigment change, phlebitis and deep vein thrombosis (if the patient is immobile) following treatment.
There are generally no long term side effects.All skin types can be treated and skin colour makes little difference to the benefits of treatment.Yes. There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the treatment can lead to skin disorders or an increased risk of cancer. Furthermore, every precaution has been taken to ensure the safety of the patient.
Having met all the necessary conditions, Laserase Croydon is registered with the Care Quality Commission. The lasers are also subject to annual checks by the Regional Radiation Physics & Protection Service.
The treatment is carried out only by qualified and fully trained doctors and nurses. Patients are required to wear approved protective goggles at all times.
