What are thread veins? Thread veins are tiny blood vessels which run close to the surface of the skin and look like fine red, or sometimes purple, wiggly lines. They’re also sometimes called ‘spider veins’ or ‘broken veins’, although the veins aren’t infact broken but only slightly enlarged. The medical term for them is telangiectasia.

What causes them? Usually there’s no obvious cause. Thread veins tend to develop as we age and our skin and blood vessels become less elastic. Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and the menopause are thought to provoke their development – the reason why women are more prone to them than men.

You can also inherit a family tendency to the problem. Other causes include too much sunbathing, exposure to wind or extreme temperatures, cortico-steroid medicines and radiotherapy. Jobs that involve prolonged standing may aggravate the condition, but they don’t actually cause it. Although you may not like the look of them, thread veins aren’t dangerous, but they tend to become larger and increase in number over time.

Who gets them? Nearly all of us as we age, apparently. Around one in five women in their 20s have thread veins, a figure that rises to around half by the age of forty and continues to increase. By the age of 70 over 70 per cent of women have some thread veins.

Treatment  should be done sooner rather than later. ‘Smaller thread veins are easy to treat. Later on they can be more difficult. Younger women could save themselves a great deal of time, trouble and expense if they opted for early treatment.’

How are they treated? A laser is best for thin red veins which are close to the skin’s surface. Deeper blue or purple veins need a laser with a longer wavelength (YAG laser) to reach them..

Is the treatment painful? It shouldn’t be. Although laser destroys tissue by heat you won’t feel any burning or pain. Each pulse is less than a thousandth of a second and the laser only works on the unwanted vein leaving other skin untouched. The sensation of a laser is often described as similar to a rubber band pinging against your skin..

Are there any after effects? Redness for 10 mins to 24 hours.

How many treatments are needed? The number of treatments depends on location and number of thread veins, how damaged your skin is if you are a smoker, how you drink and eat spicy foods and age. On average three to four have to worr, but more may be necessary, depending on the number of veins and their size and location.

How successful is it? You need to have realistic expectations. ‘Some thread veins can be quite difficult to treat because they don’t always run obligingly parallel to the skin surface,’ says Dr Cotterill. ‘Some are like big dippers they go up and down and a laser light doesn’t always reach deeply enough to destroy them.

What about treatment for broken veins on the face? Laser can treat the very fine veins that can appear on the nose, cheeks and chin and it’s usually very successful. Often thread veins on the face are part of a condition called rosacea

Are you sick and tired of red blotchy skin?

You don’t have to try to cover your thread veins anymore. The Ellipse use short, safe, burst of light emitted from a flash lamp to quickly remove your thin red veins from your face or legs.

A thread vein is small blood vessel near the suface of the skin. Blood contains haemoglobin that absorbs the light and absorbs the light and converts it into heat. As a result the veins will gradually, and safely, disappear after treatment.

Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which principally affects the face. Rosacea causes facial redness and produces small, red, pus-filled pustules (bumps).

Rosacea worsens with time if left untreated. It is often mistaken for acne or eczema, or some other skin allergy.

How Can I Be Sure Ellipse is safe and effective?

Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product. The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals.

You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at www.ellipse.org .
