Thread veins also called spider veins, broken veins and capillary veins. They are small red, blue or purple veins that usually appear near the surface of the skin on the face and legs. They take their name from their striking spider web pattern.
Spider veins can be caused by the backup of blood. They can also be caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun, and injuries. Spider veins rarely are a serious health problem, but they can leave people feeling self-conscious since thread vein in some occasion is more visible than line and wrinkles.

The treatment involves the practitioner applying a very fine, small probe about the size of an eyelash along the line of the capillary. A very small energy current is discharged, which helps to destroy the blood vessel and starve it of any nourishment. This helps to diminish the skin problem you are being treated for.
A Photo Rejuvenation IPL skin session uses advanced technology to gently target and treat damaged, pigmented skin cells. These pigmented cells absorb the pulsed light as heat which destroys the damaged skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin tissue untouched.
