IPL Thread Vein Removal is a popular non-surgical treatment that is used to treat obvious thread veins. With an Intense Pulse Light treatment at Glow Beauty Centre you can remove the appearance of veins and enjoy clear skin.

What are Thread Veins?

Thread veins are small thread-like blood vessels that appear near the surface of the skin. They can look red or purple and they are sometimes referred to as ‘spider veins.’ The medical term to describe them is telangiectasia.

Females are usually more likely to get enlarged capillary vessels that appear at the surface of the skin more so than men. Thread veins tend to appear with age and if you have an occupation that involves prolonged sitting you are more likely to get them.

What is IPL Thread Vein Removal?

Having small blood vessels appear at the surface of your skin can make you feel uncomfortable and want to hide your skin. With IPL Thread Vein Removal at Glow Beauty Centre you can remove the appearance of thread veins.

IPL Thread Vein Removal is focussed pulses of light which is concentrated onto the thread veins. The haemoglobin in the blood vessels absorbs the focused light and as the temperature of the blood vessels increases, the thread veins eventually break down and reabsorb into the body.

IPL Vein Removal is a more effective, safer and less painful way to remove veins on the face, chest, arms and legs.

How does IPL Thread Vein Removal work?

When you arrive for your Thread Vein Removal treatment you will meet with your trained beauty therapist who can explain the treatment if this is your first time.

At the beginning of the non-surgical treatment a gel is applied to the skin of the chosen area to clean the skin. The specialist will then apply the light pulses with our IPL machine. Treatment times vary depending on the size of the treated area.

You may have to have a number of treatment depending on the treatment area, your beauty therapist can discuss a treatment plan with you.
