Reduces the appearance of thread veins.
Thread veins are tiny veins just under the skin that have become dilated.
Usually occurring in the legs, thread veins can often be hereditary, commonly appearing in pregnancy and with the increase of age.
In order to reduce their appearance, Fibro-vein® is injected to break down and irritate the lining of the vein, causing the blood to stick to the damaged wall. The body then breaks down the coagulated blood to leave behind a fibrous cord, which results in the complete removal of the vein. Although the treated veins will not come back, other thread veins may appear over time.
Post treatment, the veins will appear darker, becoming lighter as they heal, which can take up to six weeks. Depending on the individual, more than one treatment is sometimes required.
(At Luxton Aesthetics we only treat fine spider, thread and cluster veins. More problematic veins are referred to a Consultant Vascular Surgeon).
Every appointment includes a full consultation, even if you are a returning patient. This is to discuss the treatment and any concerns, as well as to go through the plan of care and complete and sign the consent form.
The procedure can either be completed after the consultation, or at a later date. All consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to go ahead with the treatment on the day.
