Laser Thread Vein Removal
Prima Britannia Laser clinic was one of the first to perform Laser Thread Vein Removal procedures in Hammersmith. With more than 10 years of experience in this procedure, we have helped hundreds of clients remove broken capillaries. Broken thread veins look unsightly on the skin and disrupt tissue microcirculation, affecting our general health.
What types of broken capillaries and veins can be removed with laser therapy?
- Thread veins on the face
- Broken capillaries on Face, Legs and Body
- Spider Veins
- Defuse Redness on the face
Clients often ask for thread and spider vein removal on the face and legs.
Damaged thread veins, which can be removed in an Aesthetic Clinic, will be determined by the diameter of the veins. In the Aesthetic Clinic, you can remove any red or purple capillaries on the face, except for the veins very close to the eye area.
On the legs, it is possible to successfully remove capillaries from the thinnest one up to several millimetres in diameter.
Larger veins that protrude from the skin and form venous nodes – Varicose veins require special treatment from a doctor. Varicose veins can be removed only by a surgeon using a special laser.
Is laser vein removal treatment suitable for all skin types?
Laser vein removal is not suitable for everyone. This procedure is recommended for lighter skin types I-III. Since a high level of energy is used to thicken blood in the vessels, this procedure is not recommended:
- For dark skin IV-VI types. In some cases, the removal of threaded veins in type IV skin is possible after preliminary skin preparation.
- For susceptible clients.
This does not mean those unpleasant capillaries cannot be removed from clients with dark skin types. However, our clinic can recommend an alternative treatment for you.
Alternative methods of Laser Thread Vein Removal in Hammersmith provided by Prima Britannia Laser Clinic:
If you are considering Laser Treatment for Thread Veins, we would recommend the following steps:
The first step is to attend a Free Consultation and Test Patch with our qualified and experienced laser practitioners.
They will assess your skin type and the severity of your condition and recommend the most appropriate vein treatment.
During the Consultation laser practitioner will give you specific instructions on preparing for the procedure.
Before the treatment.
It would be best if you avoided the following:
- sun exposure,
- stop taking certain medications or supplements,
- using some skincare products
Treatment using Nd: YAG laser is a common method for removing thread veins. The laser energy is directed at the affected area, and the heat generated by the laser causes the veins to collapse and eventually fade away. Here’s how the process works:
The Nd: YAG laser is then applied to the affected area. The laser produces a beam of light that is absorbed by the red pigment in the blood vessels (deoxyhaemoglobin). The heat generated by the laser energy causes the walls of the veins to collapse and seal shut, cutting off the blood flow to the vein.
Cooling: The laser will be used with a cooling device to protect the skin and minimize discomfort.
After the treatment, the skin may be red and swollen for a few hours. The treated area should be kept clean, and sunscreen should be applied to protect the skin from sun exposure.
Nd: YAG laser treatment is a safe and effective method for removing thread veins. It is minimally invasive and typically requires little downtime.
Our clinic has an alternative method of removing a broken vein. Our specialists will advise if laser vein removal is the best choice for you. Depending on the location and condition of your vein, the following treatments may be effective as well:

Is laser vein removal treatment safe?
Yes, it is a completely safe process that has proven to be a reliable way to deal with vein removal without any problems. Using the Candela Gentle MaxPro and Cynosure Elite + laser systems, you can completely change your skin without fear of negative effects or long-term damage.
Is there any pain involved in thread vein removal?
While you will likely feel a heat sensation on the treated area, we will use strong cooling air to minimize discomfort.
How many procedures are required for a successful result?
It depends entirely on personal circumstance, but the standard result is 1-3 treatments, timed between 4-12 weeks depending on whether it is a leg or facial treatment
Do any side-effects exist here with laser vein treatment?
While the veins will likely darken and go red afterward, this will fade over the medium term. You may experience some bruising, though we recommend you use SPF30+ sun cream and also Aloe vera gel on your area for a few weeks after the experience to help avoid any sun damage or irritation.
Is laser vein removal right for me?
There are important safety implications that must be considered when deciding whether the treatment is right for you. At Prima Britannia, we’ll help you work out what the best course of action is.
For example, we can treat thread veins, but not varicose veins or large complex leg vein systems. We cannot treat a vein that is bigger than 1.5mm on the face, or any vascular lesion within the orbit of the eye for safety reasons.
Prior to treatment we will arrange a free consultation, during which one of our experienced professionals can examine your veins and determine the best course of action.
Do I have varicose veins or spider veins? Can I be treated by laser?
In our clinic we are only able to treat spider veins. We cannot treat varicose veins. Varicose veins are often much larger than spider veins, and they are thick and protrude from the skin. Spider veins, meanwhile, are much smaller and can be seen just below the surface of the skin.
Payment methods: Cash or Credit/Debit Card (excluding American Express)
