Thread Veins and Rosacea
Rosacea: If you are experiencing redness, but also other symptoms, such as spots, visible blood vessels and dry and thickened skin, you could be suffering from a skin condition called Rosacea.
Symptoms include redness, flushing, hardening of the skin, spots, a stinging or burning sensation and the appearance of red broken blood vessels. Severe symptoms might include dry, sore eyes and a thickening of the skin, particularly around the nose. Most suffers report flare-ups, with symptoms worsening and reoccurring over time.
Facial Thread Veins: Sometimes known as spider or broken veins, thread veins are small prominent veins that appear just below your skin surface, commonly on your face and legs. They tend to branch and give a spidery sort of pattern hence their common name. Thread veins are completely harmless. Intense Pulse Light (IPL), Pulsed Dye Laser and LP Nd YAG are used to treat the condition. Short pulses of light raise the temperature of the area, breaking down the vascular lesions, encouraging the body to reabsorb the veins, improving and fading their appearance.

Ask a question
The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.
Depending on your skin type and the area in question, there is redness and swelling, that feels like mild sunburn, for up to 2-3 days after treatment.
Applying cool packs to the skin for the first few hours after treatment will help reduce any discomfort. Aloe Vera gel can also be helpful.
Use SPF 50 and avoid sun exposure. This is essential to avoid the risk of hyper or darker pigmentation.
Avoid touching/picking/scratching the treated area.
Avoid hot baths, exercise and heat treatments.
Treat the skin gently, especially for the first 24 hours.
