Are you seeking treatment for spider veins, thread veins, or broken blood vessels? At Lemon Tree Cosmetology in Barnsley, we offer professional solutions to remove thread veins, also known as telangiectasia, from anywhere on the face and body.
Telangiectasia, the medical term for spider veins, thread veins, broken blood vessels, or capillaries, can manifest anywhere on your face or body. But what exactly causes these visible blood vessels to appear?
Causes of Telangiectasia
Telangiectasia occurs when the elastic fibres surrounding blood capillaries weaken and snap, resulting in permanent dilation of the capillaries. Typically, these capillaries respond to changes in body temperature by expanding or constricting. When the body is warm, capillaries dilate to release heat, often leading to flushing on the skin's surface. Conversely, they constrict to direct blood flow to major organs, causing extremities like hands, feet, nose, or ears to feel cold.
Thread veins develop when factors such as trauma, skin sensitivity, medications, illness, or hereditary predisposition contribute to the weakening of elastic fibres surrounding capillaries. As a result, these capillaries become permanently dilated and visible on the skin's surface. Over time, the oxygen-deprived blood within these capillaries darkens, giving rise to blue or bluish-purple lines on the skin.
Effective Telangiectasia Treatment
While thread veins are generally harmless, they can impact a person's confidence and aesthetics. The good news is that they can be safely and effectively treated. Depending on their location and size, thread veins can either be completely removed or significantly faded, making them nearly imperceptible.
Lemon Tree in Barnsley, offer effective treatment of telangiectasia / thread veins using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy. IPL is a non-invasive treatment that emits light through a handheld applicator to address thread veins effectively.
Treatment require commitment and patience as they gradually break down thread veins. Temporary bruising may occur as the damaged veins dissolve and are naturally removed by the body.
Please note that Telangiectasia typically necessitates multiple treatments, and we recommend scheduling a consultation to determine the best approach for your unique needs.
