Dr. Tracey Bell, CEO and aesthetic practitioner, specialises in the removal of thread veins, and enthuses that there is even a growing demand amongst active grandparents who want to look youthful on days out with the grandkids.
Thread veins can be treated at Tracey Bell using IPL or lasers. Men and women are regularly treated with lasers at Tracey Bell for thread veins, normally requiring 3 – 5 treatments, with each one taking as little as 30 minutes. The abnormally dilated blood vessels lying very close to the surface of the skin are eliminated with the benefits of Thread Vein Laser Treatment at Tracey Bell including:
reduced facial redness almost immediately;
The half-hour procedure is carried out without anaesthetic and is no more painful than eyebrow plucking. Dr. Bell explains: 'You can come in on your lunch hour and have it done. You can do whatever you like straight afterwards.'
Practitioners say the procedure, which is not available on the NHS, is cheaper and more accurate then laser surgery.
Dr. Bell also explains the procedure is very popular to also melt away veins on the face.
This could free some male patients from the embarrassment of being mistaken as having a drink problem.
'Men who have got large nose veins are often wrongly dismissed as drinkers,’ says Dr. Bell. ‘This is not the case. Most of these people are completely teetotal. I find that the harassment and assumption has lead to many a tear – when I’ve finished with these clients, the only tears we find are those of relief and happiness at the results.’ Thread veins often occur after pregnancy or the menopause and tend to worsen with age. Although usually a cosmetic problem, they can signal a thyroid disorder.
