How long do the results last?
Laser thread vein removal is permanent.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure can be uncomfortable, so local anaesthetic gel is normally used in the area.
How many sessions will I need?
This is very dependent on the condition of your skin prior to treatment and number and severity of veins. Most clients find that between 4-8 sessions are sufficient.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). Your skin may be quite red for a few days after the treatment, you should consider this if you’re planning a trip or special day.

Yes, there are alternative thread vein removal treatments, however laser is a proven technique that is safe, affordable and relatively painless.
Can I combine this procedure with other procedures?
Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
