Facial Thread Veins - Pauline

Pauline came to the clinic concerned about the broken red veins on her face and was particularly distressed as she associated the condition with excess alcohol consumption, particularly in men. Dr Pixie diagnosed Telangiecstasia or thread/spider veins as they're more commonly known and sent Pauline to see a dermatologist to discuss potential forms of action. Vascular specialist Dr Brian Newman recommends micro-thermocoagulation which uses a very fine, heated probe to remove the veins. With treatment complete Pauline returned to see Dr Pixie to show her the successful results.
