Tweakments Expert Advises IPL for Facial Thread Veins

The Daily Mail’s Beauty Clinic inbox this month looks at thread veins, as a reader asked for recommendations to get rid of thread veins on the cheeks. 

Author of The Tweakments Guide, Alice Hart-Davis, was asked to give her expert advice on whether any non-surgical treatments could provide a solution.

She suggested Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments.

The feature explains:

IPL is different from laser in that it works by emitting flashes of intense light that have more of a scattergun effect than laser, which is more concentrated and specific.

IPL can shatter brown or red pigments in the skin, which are then cleared by the lymphatic system – the body’s ‘dustman’. So it’s useful for clearing brown/age spots, also thread veins and can also help with redness of rosacea.

Alice warns that the treatment won’t last a lifetime

“…it’s not a permanent change as more pigmentation or redness or other thread veins will emerge over time, but it makes an impressive difference.”

Laser Vein Treatment at London Vein Centre

Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ main London Vein Treatment Centres in Harley Street and Putney offer the sophisticated Harmony XL Pro Laser treatment, which uses Nd:YAG technology to target problem capillaries, vessels or veins with targeted laser energy. This damages the veins so that they shrink, shrivel up and then disappear. Laser energy also works to stimulate healing and cell renewal in the treated area for clearer-looking skin. It is a gentle and effective treatment for facial thread veins on the face.

For larger thread veins, microsclerotherapy injections are a popular option. The company also offer micro-cautery treatment.
