Red Vein Removal
Thread Vein Removal – Same day treatments
Thread veins are tiny veins that appear most commonly on the cheeks and nose. Small thread veins are red, but larger ones look purplish. They have many names, including:
Broken veins (not an accurate name, because they are not actually broken).
Normally, the tiny veins in the skin are invisible, but in some people they expand and show through the skin. One cause of this is too much exposure to the sun over the years. Another is pregnancy or oestrogen treatment. They may also be inherited. Thread veins can sometimes be a sign of rosacea, a skin condition, or can result from overuse of steroid creams. Thread veins are more obvious after mid-life, when the skin becomes thinner and loses some of its collagen.
