Thread veins, or commonly known as Spider Veins, tend to develop as we age. They appear as fine red, sometimes purple lines just beneath the skin. As our blood vessels become less elastic, the blood vessels can become slightly enlarged. The medical term for this is telangiectasia. These can become quite localised to certain areas of the face such as the nose and cheeks and can be difficult to disguise with make-up. Although the causes of thread veins are not entirely clear, women and men are both prone to their development. Hormonal changes due to pregnancy and menopause have been cited as early triggers, but genetics, sunbathing, exposure to extreme weather and some medical treatments and therapies are all thought to be factors provoking thread vein appearance.

Is VEIN-AWAY suitable for me?

Thread veins do not pose any serious health risk. They can be unsightly and make you feel self-conscious and they can be more visible on certain skin types, so if you are paler, the chances are, they are quite visible. At Flawless Skin Clinic, we can safely and effectively treat and destroy thread veins using the latest technology, EXCLUSIVE to our clinic- our VEIN-AWAY treatment. Medical advice reports that left untreated, thread veins can increase in both size and number. When the thread veins are still very small, they are easier and less complex to treat. At Flawless, our highly experienced team can drastically improve the appearance of these unsightly thread veins.

VEIN-AWAY is a thermo-coagulation treatment designed to eradicate red veins, thread veins, red spots and spider naevi. It works by delivering a very high-frequency pulse of energy that seals the thread vein walls, obliterating the vein so that it is no longer visible.

The procedure and cost

  • A tiny probe is rested above the vein to close it together.
  • The next step is to deliver a 0.2-second pulse to seal the vein, the process is repeated along the length of the vein until it is permanently closed.
  • The blood is naturally absorbed into the body and the vein ceases to exist. The whole process takes minutes and most people report no discomfort whatsoever.
  • The procedure takes around 15 minutes and costs from £192.50 -this includes two sessions taken 6 weeks apart for maximum results.

We treat Milia in the clinic with diathermy treatments – this usually takes 1-2 sessions and will be dependent on how many Milia you have, the size and location of the Milia and your medical history.

Cost of milia removal – £135 for approx 10 milias – contact us if you only have 1 or 2.

Skin tag removal 

We remove skin tags using diathermy or cryopen depending on the size and location of your tag(s).

What is Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is the use of extreme cold produced by liquid nitrous oxide for the fast, effective and safe solution for the controlled destruction of unwanted skin imperfections.

CryoPen is a FDA and CE registered advanced cryotherapy innovation. It is a pen-like instrument which delivers a fine pinpoint spray of liquid nitrous oxide at a constant temperature of minus-127 degrees under high pressure which allows the therapist to work with millimetre precision. This means the nitrous oxide is delivered directly to the treated area and not to the healthy surrounding tissue.

CryoPen offers the ideal treatment for:

Age/sun spots, freckles and sun damaged, pigmented areas. For the removal of any pigmented areas, only one treatment is typically required using CryoPen.

Age/sun spots are caused by an excess production of melanin due to skin aging and sun exposure or other forms of ultraviolet light exposure, such as tanning beds. They are most likely to develop on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure, including the face, back of hands, chest, shoulders and forearms.

Milia

Small, raised, pearly-white or yellowish bumps on the skin. They are most often seen on the skin around the cheeks, nose, eyes and eyelids, forehead and chest but they can occur anywhere on the body.

Sebhorroeic Warts

A common skin disorder that is characterized by benign, painless, often wart-like skin lesions that appears to be “stuck” on the skin. The rough, raised spots are usually yellow or brown.

Cherry Angioma – Blood Spots

These are common skin growths which can grow on most areas of your body and are usually found on people aged 30 and older. The broken blood vessels inside a cherry angioma give them a reddish appearance.

They are no cause for concern, unless they bleed or change shape or colour. Cause is unknown, possibly a genetic factor, linked to pregnancy, chemicals or climate change and age.

CryoPen removes the lesions in one procedure with no risk of infection and no post care required. Larger ones will reduce in size but may dry out and take on a scab. When healed the scab will disappear or reduce in size and may need a further treatment.

Warts and Verrucae

Warts are highly contagious and occur when a virus comes in contact with the skin and causes infection. Verrucae take on the appearance of warts but are flatter because they tend to be found on the feet, where the dermis is thicker.

Shop bought topical preparations such as Wartner and Bazuka for the removal of warts and verrucae use a “slow freeze” principle to destroy the cells. A slow freeze gives the cells time to self-protect themselves, therefore taking a long time to destroy the lesion, if at all.

Cryopen attacks the cells using a fast freeze (-40 degrees on the lesion in 12 secs), destroying the nucleus therefore removing the lesion as it has not time to protect itself. It is also believed that this process helps the immune system to recognise the virus so that the patient may be less likely to get a verruca again.
