What is Thread Vein Removal treatment?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Laser treatment works by generating a beam of laser light in a very short pulse. The wavelength of the IPL laser is absorbed by the colour of blood in the vessels. This ‘seals’ the vein and makes them invisible. Sclerotherapy can also be used to treat these blood vessels, where a solution called a ‘sclerosant’ is injected directly into the blood vessel causing them to fade.
