Thread Veins

Ageing, environment and skin problems can all cause redness of the skin of the face.  Sometimes it’s just a flushed appearance and sometimes its the presence of multiple fine spidery red veins and telangectasia running through the skin.  Clinetix use a Skin Rejuvenation IPL (Intense pulsed light) technology to remove these tiny veins.  The treatment involves intense light energy being applied to the skin.


At Clinetix we use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to remove the small thread veins. The light passes through the upper layers of the skin and is selectively absorbed by haemoglobin in blood vessels.  This causes them to heat up rapidly which damages the blood vessel was causing it to close over.  Your bodies own immune system takes care of the rest and removes the damaged vessel.  The result is a reduction in redness, spider veins and telangectasia for a more even skin tone.

The removal of thread veins is performed at our Glasgow clinic and our Bothwell clinic by our expert aesthetic therapists or our medical practitioners made up of Drs Emma and Simon Ravichandran.

 IPL for thread vein removal has minimal downtime and risk. You may require multiple treatments to completely remove thread veins.
