Vascular lesions/thread veins

  • Using the light source, vascular lesions (thread veins) are broken down by coagulating the blood vessels, diffusing redness to the skin.
  • 2-4 treatments are generally necessary to remove thread veins; however this will depend on size and severity of the veins.
  • Depending on location & size of vein, a method of advanced electrolysis to cauterize the blood vessels may also be used to remove thread veins.
