Thread Veins  Explained...

Using either our Nd:YAG laser or Aria IPL laser the thread vein reduction method is an effective, non-invasive treatment that targets problem capillaries, vessels or veins which can be found on the face and legs with targeted laser energy. This damages the veins so that they shrink and then disappear. Laser energy also works to stimulate healing and cell renewal in the treated area for clearer-looking skin.

Laser Thread Vein Removal treatment works by targeting the red pigment in the blood, within the blood vessels at the surface of the skin. The blood then coagulates in the small vessels and as a consequence, the blood vessel that you can see at the surface of the skin disappears.
