Laser Vein Removal at Body TLC

Laser Vein Removal is a great option to remove unwanted and unsightly thread veins, most commonly found on the face, shoulders, legs and ankles. 

How does Laser Vein Removal Work?

Vascular cells absorb the high energy of the 980nm Laser causing it to coagulate and forcing the blood back into the original vein its sprang from. The solidified blood is then broken down and flushed from the body through the lymphatic system. 


 Recent developments in the industry have created a 0.2mm-0.5mm range enabling the Laser energy to be focused more accurately on the vein without burning the surrounding skin tissue. The Laser further stimulates the collagen dermal growth increasing the dermal density so that the small blood vessels are no longer exposed. The skins elasticity is also significantly enhanced.

Side Effects?

Laser Vein Removal will result in the appearance of the veins becoming worse before it heals completely, this is due to the fact the solid blood is darker and therefore more visual on the skins surface before it is broken down and flushed from the body by the lymphatic system.

Type of Veins

Broken Capillaries

Common on cheeks, noses and the chin

Less often also seen on the shoulders from carried weight ie backpacks

Sometimes seen on legs – but crucially far more shallow in these examples, leg veins are almost always deeper with more blood flow.


What is a capillary?

Capillaries are tiny blood vessels connecting arteries to veins. These blood vessels carry oxygen and nutrients to individual cells throughout the body.

Broken capillaries arn’t technically ‘broken’ they are swollen


Capillary walls are very elastic, and blood vessels can lose their ability to contract if they’re frequently dilated, causing them to remain enlarged.

Sadly, genetics play a major role in how susceptible you are to broken blood vessels, most common in those with sensitive skin, acne or rosacea and especially rampant in the winter thanks to fluctuating hot-and-cold temperatures


Clients working in cold factories or food manufacture are more likely to suffer and should consider  a different job should they treat the situation.

Broken capillaries can be treated in several ways depending on the severity. Those with large areas of broken capillaries ore very dense smaller areas may be better suited to:

•Fractional Laser

•Diode Rejuvenation

•Diathermy – at least 3-10 sessions

When there are fewer capillaries the following treatments may be suitable:


•980nm Laser

•Q Switch
