Removes Thread Veins

laser for thread veins in Hampshire

The M22 laser works based on selective photothermolysis, a principle where specific wavelengths of light are absorbed by target tissues while leaving surrounding skin unaffected.

In the case of thread veins, the laser emits pulses of light that are absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood vessels. This causes the blood to heat up, leading to the coagulation and closure of the vein. Over time, the body naturally absorbs and eliminates the treated vein, resulting in a reduction or elimination of the visible thread veins. The M22 laser’s advanced technology allows for precise targeting, minimising damage to surrounding tissue and ensuring effective treatment of thread veins.

A typical M22 session for treating thread veins can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size and location of the targeted veins. The actual duration may be determined by the healthcare provider based on individual needs and the extent of treatment required.

POPULAR QUESTION:
How effective is thread vein removal with Lumenis M22 IPL?

Thread vein removal with Lumenis M22 IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is considered to be an effective and non-invasive treatment for addressing superficial vascular lesions, including thread veins. The M22 IPL system utilises intense pulses of broad-spectrum light to target hemoglobin in the blood vessels, causing coagulation and eventual reabsorption by the body.

The effectiveness of the treatment often depends on various factors, including the size, colour, and depth of the thread veins, as well as individual skin types. Generally, smaller and lighter-coloured veins tend to respond more favourably to IPL treatments.

Lumenis M22’s advanced technology allows for customisable parameters, enabling practitioners to tailor the treatment to the specific needs of each patient. The system’s cooling technology minimises discomfort during the procedure, enhancing patient comfort.

While some individuals may experience immediate improvement, a series of sessions is usually recommended for optimal results. Additionally, patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and follow post-treatment care guidelines to enhance the longevity of the results.

Overall, Lumenis M22 IPL has shown effectiveness in diminishing the appearance of thread veins, providing a safe and efficient option for those seeking non-surgical solutions for vascular lesions. As with any medical procedure, consultation with one of our qualified healthcare professionals is essential to determine suitability and expected outcomes based on individual circumstances.

How is Thread Vein Treatment
Performed?

 

  1. Consultation – begin with a thorough consultation with a qualified healthcare provider to assess suitability for M22 laser treatment. They will review medical history and discuss treatment expectations.
  2. Preparation – the treatment area is cleaned, and a cooling gel may be applied to enhance laser effectiveness and minimise discomfort.
  3. Laser Application – the M22 laser device emits controlled pulses of light directed at the thread veins. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood vessels.
  4. Selective Photothermolysis – the absorbed light generates heat, causing coagulation and closure of the targeted vein while preserving surrounding tissue.
  5. Post-Treatment Care – after the session, a cooling gel or post-treatment creams may be applied to soothe the skin. Patients can typically resume normal activities immediately.

Frequently asked questions

The M22 laser treatment for thread veins is generally suitable for individuals who have visible thread veins on their skin, particularly on the face and legs. Patients should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment as while M22 is effective for many, it may not completely eliminate all thread veins in a single session. We may not recommend treatment for those who are pregnant, have an active skin infection, and have recently been exposed to sun (have a tan).

The M22 laser ensures safety through selective photothermolysis, targeting specific tissues while preserving surrounding skin. Adjustable settings accommodate diverse skin types. Trained professionals administer treatments, minimising risks. Rigorous testing and industry-standard compliance further affirm the M22’s safety and efficacy in treating various skin concerns, including thread veins.

The M22 laser offers long-lasting results for thread veins. While it significantly reduces or eliminates visible veins, new ones may develop over time due to factors like genetics or lifestyle. Maintenance sessions can help sustain optimal results, but occasional touch-ups may be needed for lasting improvement.

The M22 laser effectively treats thread veins on various body areas. Common treatment sites include the face, particularly around the nose and cheeks, as well as the legs, where thread veins often appear. The laser’s precision allows for accurate targeting of veins in these regions, providing effective and visible results.

M22 laser treatment for thread veins is generally well-tolerated. Most patients report minimal discomfort, often likened to a brief snapping or tingling sensation. The procedure is brief, and any discomfort is temporary. Topical anaesthetics may be applied to further minimise sensation, ensuring a relatively pain-free experience for most individuals.

While the M22 laser treatment for thread veins is generally considered safe, it may have some potential side effects, though they are typically mild and temporary. These can include: redness and swelling, bruising, temporary skin discolouration, and blisters or crusting. These effects are usually temporary and will heal on their own.
