Thread veins are very common and are seen in all skin types. They seen on the face, body and legs. They are not broken capillaries but permanently dilated capillaries with have very thin walls which constantly dilate and constrict losing their elasticity with time.

Contributary factors to the development of thread veins are various. These could be exposure to extremes of temperature. Hormonal,smoking, alcohol, inherited,pregnancy,menopausal or previously traumatised skin from accident or injury. 

Depending on the area treated and the clients needs I use two methods of treatment which are as follows.

1.Blend coagulation

2.Thermolysis cauterization.  

Both with excellent results.
