As we age it is very common for small thread veins to become visible on the face and legs. Whilst completely harmless, they can be unsightly and impact self-confidence.
These small veins can be easily removed with a short and simple laser treatment. Depending on the size of the area affected, each treatment may only take 15-30 minutes, an entirely non-invasive treatment with little or no discomfort.
Thread veins, sometimes known as broken veins or spider nevi (due to their cobweb like appearance) are tiny, twisted red blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin making them visible. These veins are not actually broken, only slightly enlarged, known medically as telangiectasia. The most common areas of the body to experience thread veins is on the face and legs.
During treatment the laser light passes safely through the skin, heating the targeted blood vessel carefully so the blood in the vessel coagulates, subsequently causing the vein to break down. The veins then gradually dissolve and are removed by the body’s natural immune system. The treated veins will then gradually fade for up to 4 weeks after treatment leaving the skin clear.

The Pyramid Facelift has made my skin look and feel more youthful and it has really smoothed the appearance of the lines on my forehead and around my mouth. I feel confident enough to go make up free and my skin feels tighter. Emma at NU-BEAU was so informative and really helped me to feel relaxed. I will be coming back in future, thank you Emma!
I tried different remedies with the melasma on my forehead in the hope that it would fade but nothing worked, I couldn’t cover it up with make up and I felt very self conscious. After one treatment I couldn’t believe the improvement. The treatment was pain free and after a second treatment it has almost completely removed the pigmentation. I am over the moon with the results!
After having 2 babies in the space of 2 years, my stomach really bothered me. The LipoFirm treatment was wonderfully relaxing, simply involving a lovely warming sensation on my stomach. After the treatment, my stomach instantly looked better than it had when I walked in and over the next 2 or 3 days it got even better. My skin looked firmer, the crepeyness and wrinkles are gone and the stretch marks have been dramatically reduced , back to how it used to look pre babies. Thank you Emma for giving me confidence to wear a bikini again!
