Spider Naevus is a central, dilated blood vessel with capillaries radiating away from the centre. They are often found in isolation or grouped together in areas such as the cheeks, nose chin and forehead.
They can become quite unsightly and difficult to hide under makeup.
Removal is classed as a cosmetic treatment and is no longer available on the NHS.
They can be caused by many factors, including ageing, pregnancy, harsh weather and smoking.
The tip of the finest, smallest needle (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced along the line of the capillary and a tiny energy current is discharged. The current will cauterise the vein, causing the blood to coagulate, come to the surface and then disappear.
The time taken to treat this condition will depend on the size, number and of Naevus to be treated. Your practitioner will advise during the consultation if the problem can be treated in one session or if a course of treatment is likely to be required.
Clients should expect some redness following treatment and some small scabs can form, which will drop off a few days following treatment.
