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.

Vilma Bretherton

Vilma Bretherton, aged 63 years, is a retired mother and grandmother. She came to Natura Skin Clinic looking to find out more about non-surgical treatments.

“We had booked a cruise and as I had recently become a grandmother I had started to feel older.”

“I have always enjoyed travelling. My husband and I try to go away as much as we can. We had booked a cruise and as I had recently become a grandmother I had started to feel older. I had heard from my friends about skin peels and thought about it in the past, so when my first grandchild was born I decided to book a skin evaluation at Natura Skin Clinic.”

“I went along to the clinic not really knowing what the Doctor would recommend. I knew I didn’t want to drastically change my appearance. I wanted my family to think I still looked like me, just the best version of me! So it was important that the results were natural looking. After talking with the Doctor I felt like I was in good hands and had a clear explanation of how the treatments work and the procedure itself. I went ahead with the SmartXide Skin Peel.”

“My skin was looking refreshed and younger a week later.”

“I arrived at the clinic and was shown to the preparation room. Its not at all clinical. I sat on a big comfortable armchair and had a cup of tea. There was a television in there too so I relaxed and watched Saturday Kitchen whilst a special cream numbed my skin. I then had the treatment. Initially it felt a bit strange but the doctor kept talking to me and I felt assured. I got used to it after the first couple of minutes and I was ready to leave soon after. A few days after my face was little red but I was given special rehydration cream and Ice Masks which were amazing. My skin was looking refreshed and younger a week later.”
