Thread Veins and Rosacea

Thread Veins Laser Treatment

At The Harley Laser Clinic, we provide effective treatment for thread veins.  These can also be known as spider veins, and can be seen quite easily as they sit on the surface of the skin.  They can occur more frequently in females and are commonly found around the cheeks and nose; they have been known to appear during pregnancy as well.

They have also been known to be caused by poor circulation, wearing heeled shoes frequently, also sitting and standing for long periods of time can trigger this condition, along with the hereditary factor.

How do you treat thread veins?

The ND: YAG Laser is used at The Harley Laser Clinic in London to treat effectively thread veins.  We are proud to use this state-of-the-art laser technology as it is renowned for providing effective treatment with the least discomfort to our clients who wish to treat their thread veins effectively.

It works by emitting light into the affected area, where the thread veins are positioned.  It is this light, which is then absorbed by red colour in the thread veins, which then breaks it down, so it can then be reabsorbed into the body.   The softly minimises the thread veins and their appearance is reduced.


This is a serious condition which predominntly affects the skin on the face.  It is a chronic condition and can significantly disrupt the life of the individual, as there are periods of remission along wiith flare-us which can occur intermitantly.   Rosacea can start from ny age, however it is most common after the age of thirty.


Effective Treatment of Rosacea

Treatment of Rosacea is effectively carried out using the latest laser technology  At The Harley Street Clinic we use the ND: YAG laser for the procedure.  Blood vessels withn the body will absorb the energy from the laser, this is what reduces the appearance and visiual affects of Rosacea.  The laser will set-off receptors in the skin that produce collagen, helping the time it takes to heal and the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

In order to get the very best results, we recommend that you have several treatments over a period of time.   All of the treatments at The Harley Street Clinic are carefully controlled, monitored and overseen by a specialist team which consists of the Laser protection advisor and a laser protection supervisor.

We always make sure that our clients needs are taken care of, and the very best standards of care and treatement, before, during and after are given, always.
