Do you want to get rid of unsightly and ugly veins (dilated blood vessels)? Natura Skin Clinic offers the most up to date Laser Vein Treatment for face veins available today.


A gold standard treatment

Spider veins and face veins are known medically as Telangiectasias. There is no real cause known as to why they appear on the face or other areas, but they’re usually red in colour and often referred to as ‘red veins’. Sun damage, similar to Rosacea, has been suggested as a cause. They seem to be associated with genetics, and oestrogen, which is why they are most common in women.

Facial veins pose no real risk to your health but do cause discomfort and embarrassment appearance wise. Unless treated properly, these types of veins will never fade. They can develop on the forehead, cheeks, nose, eyelids, neck and upper chest.

Natura’s Laser Vein Treatment is considered and recommended as gold standard for treating spider veins. Our doctors can guarantee to clear your face from these.

Our doctor answers your questions


  • How does Laser Vein Treatment work?

    The laser light penetrates the skin keeping it intact until it reaches the vessel. Once the laser energy reaches the vessel, it is immediately absorbed. At this point the light energy turns into heat that causes the line of the vessel (the vein) to become inflamed. This triggers the healing process and veins gradually reduce in diameter and disappear. The laser energy is delivered through a chilled window to protect the patient’s skin and provide comfort.


  • How many treatments do you recommend having?

    Most patients achieve the desired results after two to three treatments.


  • How long does Laser Vein Treatment last?

    This varies from patient to patient. Some find it lasts for one or two years while other patients have been free of spider veins and thread veins for seven years.


  • How long does the procedure take?

    About 1 hour in total: anaesthetic cream must be applied 30 minutes beforehand, with treatment taking 30-45 minutes.


  • Does it hurt?

    Prior to the procedure local anaesthetic is applied to the area to be treated. This numbs the area making the procedure practically pain free.


  • How soon will my veins disappear?

    In most cases, patients with larger leg veins will require (on average) three treatments. The interval between each treatment is around 6 weeks. After each treatment patients will notice the veins fade more and more.


  • Do I have to take medication afterwards?

    The only precaution is to avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatories such as Nurofen for three to four days after treatment.


  • Is there anything I should be aware of?

    Most people experience a small degree of redness, however this is similar to that of gentle sun exposure or jogging. This will settle after a few hours.

I liked that I saw Dr. Xavier for my skin evaluation and he was the one that was carrying out my treatment.

Deborah Ledger

Deborah Ledger, 40, runs a business with her partner. The stressful nature of her job meant she began noticing fine lines and wrinkles appearing. She came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about non-surgical treatments.

“I wanted to have something done to ease these lines gradually”

“Running your own business is hard work, not to mention stressful. It’s important for me to look calm and collected at work but I began noticing fines lines and wrinkles developing on my face. I wanted to have something done to ease these lines gradually so I came to Natura Skin Clinic to see what my options were.”

“It was very important that whoever would be carrying out my procedure was fully qualified and experienced”

“I have always been slightly worried about needles so it was very important that whoever would be carrying out my procedure was fully qualified and experienced. I have known Dr. Xavier for over 10 years, and as far as im concerned there is no-one else I would allow to put needles in my face!”

“I went to Natura for my free skin evaluation and spoke to Dr. Xavier. He went through all the various treatments that were suitable for me and I decided to go ahead with a course of Botox. I like the fact the with Botox you can have your treatment gradually so you aren’t in any danger of ending up with a completely frozen face.”

“I liked that I saw Dr. Xavier for my skin evaluation and he was the one that was carrying out my treatment.”

On the day of my treatment I wasn’t nervous at all. All my questions were answered during my skin evaluation and I actually felt quite excited about the prospect of being wrinkle free. During the treatment I barely felt a thing. The doctor explained to me each stage of the treatment and I felt completely at ease. It was a very relaxed and professional atmosphere throughout the procedure. I liked that I saw Dr. Xavier for my skin evaluation and he was the one that was carrying out my treatment. I had my treatment and was back at home with the kettle on in the space of about 40 minutes!

“If someone asks me what the secret to my youthful appearance say Natura Skin Clinic!”

“The results of my treatment are fantastic. I feel more confident. Every woman that has Botox feels more confident when they have it. I recommend Natura Skin Clinic to everyone. If someone asks me what the secret to my youthful appearance say Natura Skin Clinic!”
