What are facial thread veins, spider veins and broken veins?

 

They are Small, unsightly superficial veins that can be red, purple or blue. The medical term for them is telangiectasia. The veins are not actually broken. They occur when very small blood vessels or capillaries dilate and become large enough to be visible through the transparency of the skin. Over time they tend to become even larger and difficult to cover up. They tend to occur around the nose but can occur on the cheeks, sides of face, chin, neck and chest. Their appearance may look like spider legs, red spots, blotches or red lines.

How are the veins removed?

At MBE we have the choice of a medical grade IPL machine or the V beauty. Sometimes a combination of treatments may be required to achieve best results.

V Beauty TM

The V beauty TM ensures treatment of very fine veins which can be too tiny for an IPL or laser to treat effectively. It utilizes the principle of thermo coagulation by using microwaves to produce heat which coagulates the blood in the tiny veins and causes the walls to collapse and disappear.

The V beauty offers highly effective removal of facial thread veins enhanced by the use of a specialized polarized head set. The polarized light eliminates glare on the skin for a clearer view of the area to be treated. The fine veins, although visible through a magnifying loop become instantly more defined, which allows a effective, quick and accurate treatment.

Lynton Lumina IPL

The Lynton Lumina IPL machine is ‘intense pulsed light therapy’. It is a medical grade machine often used in hospitals. It emits light which is readily absorbed by the blood vessels. It heats them for micro seconds to a point where they are destroyed. The vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed, leaving little or no trace.

The IPL can effectively reduce redness associated with rosacea, widespread red veins and even port wine stains. As melanin also absorbs light well it is important not to have an active tan or use fake tan prior to treatment with IPL. The IPL is often used to rejuvenate the skin ‘Photorejuvenation’. This process helps to eliminate both red veins, age spots and promote collagen production at the same time.
