A flawless and beautiful complexion is usually only in the possession of our literary heroes and heroines. Rarely does a novel describe the protagonist as acne-scarred or plagued with spider veins. For most of us, real people fresh translucent and porcelain complexions are primarily achieved with the clever use of smartphone filters.
However, there are many facial blemishes that can be addressed and many people contact us at PHI with a keen desire to remove facial thread veins. Fortunately, this is something we can treat at PHI with great success, as we pride ourselves on employing the very latest up to date innovative techniques.
What Causes Facial Thread Veins?
Thread veins also commonly known as spider veins are small, damaged veins that can appear on the surface of the legs or face. Generally, they are not usually painful or harmful, however, some people may wish to remove facial thread veins for cosmetic reasons as they can affect your confidence. Thread veins can appear as unsightly blue, purple, or red and may appear in the form of thin lines, webs, or branches across the face.
Spider veins on the face are often the result of tiny blood vessels bursting. There are a number of causes including overexposure to the sun, drastic changes in weather, excessive alcohol consumption, hormonal changes such as pregnancy, sudden changes in pressure such as severe vomiting, or sneezing, or they may simply be genetic. People with rosacea often find they suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed. Fortunately, there are several treatments to remove facial thread veins.

Pulsed Laser Dye
Pulsed Dye Laser is a very effective way of treating redness and other issues like face veins. At PHI we always put the comfort of patients first and this treatment is minimally invasive (non-ablative), does not require anaesthetic to be administered, and can be undertaken in a matter of minutes, depending on the individual patient’s condition.
The pulsed dye laser, or VBeam, releases long pulses of energy to the top layer of skin, which is drawn to the redness in the skin. The device helps to coagulate the blood and cauterise the veins to reduce the flushed look that patients experience whilst also removing diseased and dead skin cells to give an overall more refreshed look.
Excel V +
The Excel V+ laser utilises a high power green laser in order to target blood vessels and pigment with abnormalities. This action allows the skin to return to a more natural colour and tone. Thread veins often make one feel self-conscious and may also impact on a person’s self-esteem, but they are very easy to improve using the Excel V+ laser technology.
The Excel V+ has 50% more power than its predecessor, the Excel V, and has fantastic new applicators that can be used to treat larger spot sizes as well as the precise ‘Dermastat’ hand-piece that we employ to remove facial thread veins. Again with this treatment, there is no need for any anesthesia, and this is due to the outstanding automatic cooling technology, which produces continuous cooling throughout your treatment, always maximising patient safety and comfort.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and is an FDA-approved treatment that is very similar to laser technology. During your IPL session, a bright light is aimed at your skin using various filters so that it exclusively targets specific areas of the skin. IPL applies a broad spectrum light that is used with filters in order to be able to use it to combat several different conditions in one treatment, even contributing to reducing pore size.
As with most of the treatments at PHI, patient comfort is tantamount and so with IPL there is minimal downtime and the sensation experienced during the treatment is compared by our patients to a rubber band pinging on the skin. During the treatment, light energy is converted to heat, which then damages or destroys the unwanted thread veins which the body then flushes away using autophagy.
At PHI, we view each patient as the amazing individual that you are, hence offering multiple options for the same issue. After a careful and thorough consultation, our highly skilled therapists will assess your skin and draw up a treatment plan with you, detailing the best way to remove facial thread veins and to leave your skin refreshed and glowing.
