Treatments offered

Thread and Spider Vein Reduction

Laser Skin Treatments

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.

Laser Skin Treatments

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.

 

Skin Tags

What are Skin Tags ?

Laser Skin Treatments
Skin tags are those tiny pearl or seed-like moles that appear to hang off of the skin and look as though they could be easily removed but in fact, are quite firmly attached to the skin’s surface. They are attached only superficially by a tiny point at its base. As we age skin tags become more abundant, particularly on the face, neck, chest and arms.
Skin Tags, also known as cutaneous skin tags, fibroepithelial polyps or acrochordons, they are generally benign (non-cancerous) skin growths. They are usually small and more often than not found in people older than 30. It is believed that they come from skin rubbing against skin or clothes and shaving.
It is estimated that about 38% of the general population and as many as 59% of adults by age 70 can be affected.
People who are diabetics, overweight, who have a family history of skin tags, as well as pregnant women, are more prone to develop skin tags.

Location of Skin Tags

  • Neck
  • Armpit
  • Trunk
  • Body folds
Most skin tags are flesh colored (occasionally darker). They are attached to the skin by a narrow short stalk which is connected to the skin surface. They are usually harmless and painless however they may be irritated from rubbing on clothing or other materials.

What are Stretch Marks ?

Laser Skin Treatments
The skin consists of three key layers: epidermis (the outer layer), dermis (the middle layer) and subcutaneous or hypodermis (the deepest layer). Stretch marks form in the dermis when the connective tissue is “stretched” beyond the power of its elasticity due to rapid expansion or contraction of the skin from sudden growth or weight gain.
The abrupt stretching causes the dermis to tear which allows deeper skin layers to show through, forming the stretch marks. Usually, as the body grows, the strong connecting fibers in the dermis slowly stretch. However, with rapid growth, the fibers overstretch and break. Stretch marks are red or purple initially due to blood vessels showing through the tears in the dermis.
Stretch marks eventually fade to a silvery, white or glossy appearance due to the blood vessels contracting and the pale fat underneath the skin becoming visible instead.
