What are Thread Veins?
Thread Veins (Telangiectasia) are blood capillaries that have become permanently dilated – or occasionally broken near the surface of the skin. Normally, these tiny veins and blood vessels in the skin are invisible. However once permanently dilated, the blood is trapped and shows through as a red thread vein.
What causes Thread Veins?
There are so many causes of unsightly Thread Veins, here is list of just a few of them:
Acne rosacea, Ageing, Excessive alcohol, Allergies (such as hay fever), Birth marks, Chemotherapy, Circulatory disorders, Diabetes, Comedone extraction, Fragility of the skin, Hormones, Hereditary, Harsh exfoliation, High blood pressure, Menopause, Physical trauma, Pregnancy and childbirth, Rosacea, Smoking, Extreme temperature changes, Sun bathing, Harsh weather, General wear and tear (such as spectacle wearing) and much more.
At the Grove Cosmetic Clinic we use IPL and Advanced Cosmetic Techniques to close down these tiny blood vessels causing the thread veins to shrink and disappear. During the Advanced Cosmetic treatment a sterile disposable probe is inserted along the length of the capillary and a heat sensation is felt with minimal discomfort and trauma to the skin.
Angiomas or cherry moles are benign bright red dome shaped structures. They lie just under the surface of the skin and are most common on the trunk or torso and particularly the midriff back or front. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are even more common in men than women. They can also be removed using this Advanced Cosmetic procedure.

Thread Veins and Spider Veins can be found on the legs and face, (usually on the cheeks and around or on the nose), and can become more common after mid-life when the skin becomes thinner and starts losing elasticity. However, anyone from young children right through to the elderly can develop them.

Skin Tags are small benign fibrous growths hanging from the skins surface. Although skin tags are common they are completely harmless, and they do not usually cause any pain or discomfort. However, they can get caught on clothing or jewellery and bleed as a result, and can also lower your self esteem.

Seborrhoeic keratosis is a benign, asymptomatic mass, primarily caused by the ageing process. It is also known as seborrhoeic warts, senile warts, barnacles or basal cell papilloma. They have a thick wart-like surface and are usually colourless when they appear and become brown to black over time.
A central blood vessel becomes dilated and the smaller capillaries branching out from it radiate in different directions. It appears close to your skin surface and looks like a spider with its legs spread out. It can be isolated or appear in clusters at different areas of the skin surface.
Sebaceous cysts are filled with a clear, oily liquid made by the sebaceous glands and are usually found on the face, neck and trunk of the body.
