Laser Thread Vein Removal
Prima Britannia Laser clinic was one of the first to perform Laser Thread Vein Removal procedures in Hammersmith. Having more than eight years of experience in this procedure, we have helped hundreds of clients to get rid of broken capillaries. Broken thread veins not only looking unsightly on the skin, but also disrupt tissue microcirculation, which affects our health in general.
What types of broken capillaries and veins can be removed with laser therapy?
- Thread veins on face
- Broken capillaries on Face, Legs and Body
- Spider Veins
- Defuse Redness on face
Most often, clients ask for the 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 that are 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 coagulate 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 preparation of the skin.
- For very sensitive clients.
This does not mean that unpleasant capillaries cannot be removed from clients with dark skin types. In our clinic we can recommend an alternative treatment for you.
Alternative methods of Laser Thread Vein Removal in Hammersmith provided by Prima Britannia Laser Clinic:
Laser system delivers a pulse of light energy to the vein, which absorb by blood (oxy or deoxy haemoglobin).
The blood vessel is heated up (coagulated) above 70C and causes a vascular (vein) spasm destroying thread veins.
Immediately after the treatment the appearance of the vein become darker and the area will swell. But don’t worry! This is part of the process. Over the following few weeks the vein will fade and shrink. Blood will be redirected to veins deeper below the skin and you will no longer be able to see the thread vein.
Each laser pulse is less than 1/1000 of a second and will not damage the surrounding tissue. It is an effective, fast, and extremely common treatment that allows you to avoid thread veins without having to undergo surgery or painful and unreliable procedures.

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.
