Thread veins, or ‘spider’ veins, are tiny blood vessels that are visible through the surface of the skin. 20% of women get them in their 20s, and 50% of woman over 40 suffer from them.
They look like red or purple wiggly lines and although they’re often referred to as ‘broken’ veins, they’re not broken but slightly enlarged.
The medical term for them is telangiectasia, and they tend to develop as we age, as our blood vessels become less elastic. Hormonal changes such as pregnancy can provoke their development; as can a genetic predisposition and exposure to extreme temperatures.
Using a revolutionary combination of three different light-based technologies, Laser 360 delivers brighter, younger and healthier-looking skin, from the inside out. Laser 360 eliminates vascular marks and superficial pigmented marks. Pulses of light reduce the appearance of damaged or broken blood vessels and even out your skin color and help to eradicate other color irregularities in your skin.
I.P.L. (Intense Pulse Light) uses targeted pulses of light which is attracted to the problem areas of the skin, heating up the cells and collapsing them so that they can be flushed out by the body’s natural defences. This leaves only the healthy skin cells in the targeted area and evens out the tone of your skin in just a few short sessions.
