More About:

Thread Vein Removal

Preparation: The treatment area will be cleansed and protective eyewear will be provided.

Treatment: The technician will apply a cooling gel to the area and then use the 3D-Vasculase laser to deliver pulses of light to the targeted veins. The laser energy heats up the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and collapse.

Aftercare: You may experience some mild redness or swelling after the treatment, which should subside within a few hours. Your technician will provide you with specific aftercare instructions, such as avoiding sun exposure and strenuous activity.

How Does

Thread Vein Removal


The 3D-Vasculase laser emits a specific wavelength of light (980nm) that is preferentially absorbed by the hemoglobin in red blood cells. This absorption causes the blood vessels to heat up and coagulate, ultimately leading to their closure and disappearance.

3D-Vasculase is a safe and well-tolerated treatment, but there are a few potential risks and complications, including:

  • Redness, swelling, and bruising
  • Blistering or crusting
  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation (darkening or lightening of the skin)
  • Scarring (rare)

These side effects are usually mild and temporary. It is important to avoid sun exposure before and after treatment to help reduce the risk of side effects.
