How we can help you with Thread Vein Removal

We had a lady visit us here at Surrey Laser Clinic asking for help with the thread veins that she had, we were of course happy to help.

Using our NdYag Laser, we were blown away by the results after just 3 treatments. The Picture you see above is from left to right, before we began, then immediately after treatment in the middle and finally on the right, after 3 treatments! Wow!

What are Thread Veins?
Thread veins, sometimes known as spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin.

What Causes Them?

There are several factors that can cause or contribute to the development of thread veins:

Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy, menopause, or as a result of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy, can contribute to the development of thread veins.

Genetics, a family history of thread veins can increase your risk of developing them as well as just aging, as we get older, the elasticity of their blood vessels can diminish, leading to the development of thread veins.

Sun exposure, prolonged exposure to the sun can damage the skin and the blood vessels underneath, making thread veins more likely to form, simularly injuries/trauma to the skin can damage blood vessels and result in the formation of thread veins.

Standing or sitting for long periods does not help, this can increase the risk of thread veins, especially in the legs, due to the increased pressure on the veins, along with excess body weight, this can increase pressure on the blood vessels in the legs and contribute to the development of thread veins, especially in the lower limbs.

Women are more likely than men to develop thread veins, especially during and after pregnancy, smoking can contribute to poor circulation and skin damage, which may increase the risk and excessive alcohol consumption can dilate blood vessels and lead to the development of thread veins, particularly on the face.

Of course it is not all bad news – we are on hand to help you should you be concerned about the appearance of any thread veins you may have, book in for a Skin Consultation with one of our Experts here and we will always give you our best advice.

How to get rid of large pores and fine lines using Microneedling?

Microneedling can be so beneficial if you are wanting help with fine lines and large pores. It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that tricks your skin with the use of a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries. It is this that will stimulate the body’s natural healing response and the production of collagen and elastin.

Here’s how –

Collagen Stimulation ~ Microneedling promotes the production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its firmness and elasticity. As we get older, collagen production decreases which leads to the formation of fine lines and enlarged pores.

Microneedling helps to increase collagen production, which can improve the appearance of both issues.

Pore Size Reduction ~ The micro-injuries created during microneedling can trigger the skin’s healing process. This process includes the formation of new, healthier, shinier skin cells and a more even distribution of collagen.

Over time, this can lead to a reduction in the size and appearance of enlarged pores.

Fine Line Reduction ~ Fine lines and wrinkles are the natural result of collagen loss and skin aging. Microneedling can encourage the skin to produce more collagen, which can plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Of course, results may vary from person to person, with the effectiveness of microneedling for large pores and fine lines depending on individual factors ~ skin type, age, and the severity of the issues.

Additionally, there may be other cosmetic treatments or skincare routines that can complement the effects of microneedling for a more comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.

What is an Alumier Skin Peel?

An Alumier chemical skin peel is when a chemical solution is applied to the skin, usually on the face, to remove the top layer of skin, reaching the deeper layer. Not only does this get rid of old skin cells but the skin that does then rejuvenate through this exfoliation and refinement, is smoother, brighter and younger-looking. What are Skin Peels Used for? Skin peels are used to rejuvenate and resurface the skin and stimulate healthy regrowth, also 

·      Wrinkles

·      Signs of ageing

·      Discoloured areas of skin

·      Scarring

·      Acne

Are there different types of Skin peels? As the solution contains chemicals, treatments come into different depths from light to deep.   A light depth peel, or superficial skin peel, is the lowest level of treatment and removes the epidermis – the outer layer of the skin. This type of treatment is best-suited to fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, uneven skin toneand small areas of acne. A medium depth chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and the dermis – the middle layer of your skin. This type of peel can be used to treat the same concerns as a light chemical peel but is also effective at minimising acne scarring. Finally, a deep skin peel removes the most amount of skin cells and is used for deep wrinkles, aged scarring and even pigmentation. How does it work? Skin peels are a non-invasive way to rejuvenate the skin. We typically use a soft brush to apply the chemical solution, which is made up of glycolic or salicylic acid. This gentle and unique blend of acids provides an effective peel to improve the look and feel of your skin. It also helps to gently exfoliate the skin’s top damaged layers, leaving your complexion fresh, renewed and radiant. If you are thinking about a Chemical Peel, perhaps you want to discuss your options, and the pros and cons, in more detail. Either way, our team of experts would be delighted to help – please do get in touch.

AlumierMD is medical grade skincare and we can offer you a medical grade facial regime here at the clinic.

Why do I need to use medical grade skincare?

They are exclusively dispensed by medical and aesthetic practitioners, meaning that they are sold only by professionals who really, truly understand what the products are doing for your skin and how to build a customised skincare routine, just for you, ensuring visible and long-lasting results.

Medical grade skincare is formulated with clinically validated percentages of active ingredients which are well documented by studies to have a positive impact on your skin and you are likely to see results within 6-8 weeks.

Everyone!

Whether you have specific skincare concerns like acne, rosacea, aging or pigmentation, or you just want an overall glowing complexion, you can benefit from using the AlumierMD products.

Both men and women across a wide range of ages have seen amazing results on their skincare journeys.

In terms of cost it depends on which products you choose, they are not as cheap as Nivea and products you can buy in the supermarket. But this is because they are medical grade and higher quality. It depends on what you are looking for? I have yet to find a product that has a higher quality and is the cheapest on the market.

Is AlumierMD cruelty-free?

It is!
