They are sometimes called thread veins or red veins.

How Many Treatments Do I Need ?
Results of some cosmetic treatments are instantaneous, while larger irregularities may need more than one treatment. Most are usually gone or faded within one to three treatments. You may receive another treatment after 2-4 weeks to ensure complete healing of the treated area.
Does It Hurt?
There is a stinging sensation when removing the red vein, that only lasts a few seconds as each lesion is vaporised. Numbing cream can be applied in sensitive areas.
Is It Safe?
Yes. The area that is treated will be red for 2-4 hours, little scabs are formed, the treatment is a non-invasive with minimal scarring and no downtime.
What Happens After Each Treatment?
You may experience some mild irritation, redness, and crusting on the treated areas 1-2 weeks face and hands 1-3 weeks. While skin is healing, makeup can be applied to cover and camouflage any temporary imperfections. You will need to avoid direct sunlight immediately after the treatment--but we do recommend our clients to be sun-safe all the time. Otherwise, you can resume normal activities right away and results are often seen after just one treatment.
