Thread or Spider veins can be formed anywhere on the body, and unlike varicose veins, they are relatively smaller in size. Poor lifestyle (excessive alcohol, smoking, stress), prolonged exposure to the sun and Rosacea (a skin condition that affects the blood vessels) are all possible factors that can contribute to prominent thread and spider veins on the body.
Those with visible thread and spider veins may feel conscious of their appearance and may seem that their skin is prematurely ageing, particularly around the under eye area. Remember, the skin around the under eye area is thin and delicate, making it more susceptible to damage if handled without the correct care.
How to treat thread veins under the eye?
If you’re looking for a treatment that is directly aimed at treating thread and spider veins under the eyes, then the Cutera CoolGlide may be the best option for you. The Cutera CoolGlide is a special laser which targets treating veins under the eye. The laser gently delivers pulses of light energy to the damaged spider/thread vein around the delicate eye area, which subsequently causes the blood within the vein to thicken. The blood vessel is destroyed, reabsorbed into the body and blood flow is redirected to the deeper veins in the face. Patients often describe the experience during the procedure as a mild stinging sensation. Treatment time is around 15-30 minutes and you can expect to get straight back to your daily routine after treatment.
