3 3D Aesthetics

Broken capillaries can be difficult to treat, which is why 3D Aesthetics has launched 3D-Vasculase –a device to remove thread veins using 980nm laser technology. The red blood cells in thread veins absorb the laser energy, causing the blood within them to heat up, damaging the wall of the vein. This causes thread veins to close down and be absorbed by the body. The treatment can target broken capillaries on the thighs, calves, ankles and face, and the brand says it can remove up to 90% of thread veins in a single session.

Price: £9,916.67, or £5,950 (up to 40% off) with 3D Aesthetics Smart Buy Scheme 01788 226512
