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.

Janet Simm

Janet Simm, 46, is a health care professional. She came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about non-surgical treatments.

“I began to notice some very fine lines and wrinkles developing so I wanted to have something done which would not only treat these wrinkles but also prevent the deepening of these lines”

“I have always taken pride in my appearance. Making sure I look my best often makes me feel better and more confident. I began to notice some very fine lines and wrinkles developing so I wanted to have something done which would not only treat these wrinkles but also prevent the deepening of these lines. I had heard about Botox in the past so I did some research online to learn a little more. The search results were vast and it was difficult to identify exactly what would be suitable for me. I decided to book a free skin evaluation at Natura so that I could learn a little more from someone with a medical background.”

“During the evaluation I felt that Dr. Xavier gave me a genuine and honest assessment of what was best for me”

“I booked my skin evaluation and went along to see Dr. Xavier. During the evaluation I felt that Dr. Xavier gave me a genuine and honest assessment of what was best for me. I had suggested to the Doctor that perhaps I needed more than he had recommended, but he assured me that I only needed the minimum amount to achieve visible yet natural looking results. I think that because of my medical background I place a lot of value on the importance of a doctor advising me and carrying out the procedure.”

“On the day of the treatment I came to Natura and the doctor explained the whole procedure before he started. It was so quick and painless. I was made aware of all aspects of the treatment including aftercare, and was given some information to take away for my own reference. “

“My appearance hasn’t changed, it has been enhanced!”

“I would recommend Natura Skin Clinic to anyone who, like me, wants visible yet natural looking results. Seeing the same doctor throughout my journey means he has got to know me (and my wrinkles!), so he knows how best to treat them. I feel personally welcome every step of the way, from booking right through to treatment. My appearance hasn’t changed, it has been enhanced.”
