Vasculase Vein Removal

Laser remains one of the most technologically advanced treatments available in the removal of unwanted thread veins and broken capillaries.

For decades our clinic has used non-invasive direct laser to successfully reduce all types of vascular lesions.

The 3D Vasculase high energy laser beam precisely targets the vascular structure of the skin, without causing damage to the surrounding areas. The laser device is programmed to heat, destroy and breakdown the vascular lesions within the skin causing it to disappear.

Excellent, instant, and affective results are achieved.

More FAQs

Thread veins
Thread veins, also known as spider veins, broken blood vessels, broken veins or capillary veins, are small prominent red, purple, or blue veins that typically appear just below the skin surface and are found on the face and body, such as the thighs, calves and ankles.

Thread veins are most commonly present on the face, and can be caused by a number of factors and lifestyle contributions, including sun exposure, extremes of temperature, skin trauma, genetics, alcohol consumption, and aggressive skin handling to name a few.

Thread veins can also develop on the body, which can be simply due to day-to-day stress, such as high impact exercise, pregnancy, and the natural ageing process.

What will it involve?

Your skin care practitioner will complete a detailed consultation to establish your skin type, condition, location of the unwanted veins, and your improvement goals, all of which will determine your most suitable treatment plan.

A Laser consultation is essential, prior to taking any of these treatments.

Following a skin cleanse prep, the 3D Vasculase laser is applied.

It involves high energy visible and infra-red laser wavelengths to be delivered to selected, affected veins on the skin surface.

The 3D Vasculase high energy laser precisely targets the affected vascular lesion on the skin surface. It passes through the skin, where it produces heat that causes the vessel wall to collapse and the destruction process to begin. The vein is broken down into microscopic particles, which are then disposed of through the skin’s natural eliminating process.

It safely treats the vascular lesions without damaging any surrounding areas

Why have the procedure?

3D Vasculase is ideal for all skin types and ethnic origins up to skin type 4, suitable to target thread veins on a number of areas for the face and body, including chest, thighs, calves and ankles.

Types of vascular lesions we can treat are:

  • Small Broken Veins
  • Spider Angioma
  • Telangioma
  • Cherry Angioma
  • Haemangioma,
  • Piokiloderma of Civatte
  • Port Wine Stains
  • Talangiatasia
  • Venous Lakes

Does it hurt?

During the treatment, as laser technology moves across the skin you may feel a minor heat sensation.  Each individual has a varied pain threshold in response to the energy delivered to the vein. Care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible.

How many treatments do I need?
Generally, a single treatment will remove a small fine thread vein, and several treatments are advised to remove a typical deep red/purple thread vein. However, several more treatments may be required to remove larger vascular lesions, especially if located on the body.

How quickly will I see the results?
Your practitioner will see the vein visibly disappearing during treatment. Results can be seen instantly, with the fine thread vein visibly disappearing during treatment. The red/purple thread vein type is reduced significantly after each session.

Immediately after the laser application, redness may appear over the treated area of the skin, and it should settle within 24 hours. This is normal and a part of the skin’s defense system to deal with the destruction and removal of the lesion.

The healing process can vary from 5 to 7 days, depending on the type of vascular lesion, location on the face or body, and the intensity with which we treat the lesion.

How long will the results last?
Following a single, or several sessions of treatments if required, the vascular lesion will permanently be destroyed. However, clients should bear in mind that this does not mean new ones will not develop. New veins can develop depending on many factors, such as how one cares for the skin post treatment, diet, stress, hormone influences and lifestyle.

After Care

Immediately after the laser application, redness may appear over the treated area of the skin, which should settle within 24 hours. This is normal and a part of the skin’s natural defense system to deal with the destruction and removal of the lesion.

The healing process can vary from 5 to 7 days, depending on the type of vascular lesion, location on the face or body, and the intensity with which we treat the lesion.

The expected side effects post treatment can include:

  • Redness
  • Inflammation or swelling
  • Scabbing

Treat the skin as a sensitive skin, avoid heat treatments and swimming from 5 to 7 days, or until the skin appears completely calm.

Avoid taking any anti-inflammatory medication for the next 72 hours to ensure you receive optimum result to injury.

Emporium Practitioner:
Angela Taffinder – Senior Aesthetician


Angela is simply the best.
She has completely turned around my skin – I really couldn’t be happier with the results. Angela has so much experience, and so much advice – there are always different options and avenues to explore.
I really couldn’t recommend more


Angela is simply the best. I’ve been one of her clients for nearly 7 years and I can’t recommend her more highly. She has tailor made me a bespoke milia removal/ face rejuvenation treatment and I wouldn’t be without it! She has so much experience and knowledge and never fails to work her magic. Her treatments are so much more than your bog standard facial, she knows exactly what your skin needs and explains everything along the way. I promise you won’t find any one better.


Angela has been caring for my skin for the last 25 years. Her treatments are bespoke, addressing whatever is currently going on with my skin. I have a monthly triple treatment which seems to be exactly what my skin needs at the moment. During lockdown, my skin missed her amazing treatments & careful attention.


I went in having let my milia run riot during lockdown and I was super impressed to leave the treatment not only without a mark but with totally revived skin after the facial. I also love that there is no “paint by numbers” approach to the treatment, you feel that you’re getting an experience tailored to your skin’s needs. I have and would continue to recommend.


I have been going to Angela for years and she really knows my skin and what treatments to give … I totally trust her and have recommended her to many of my friends who also love her . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED XXX


Transformed my acne!
I have been coming to Emporium Treatments for almost a year and each time I leave, I’m even more in love with my skin. When I had my initial treatment with Angela, my skin was suffering from active acne and scarring. Angela provided a tailored treatment plan for myself, explaining every step clearly and since then my skin has improved dramatically. She has really helped with my overall confidence. I would highly recommend.


Angela always provides the best service, no matter which of the many treatments you choose. Booking is a breeze, and punctuality is proven. My chosen treatment was conducted quickly, professionally, and thoroughly. The results consistently exceed my expectations! I always look forward to my next appointment.


Angela at Emporium is amazing!
I have recurring milia so I’m constantly coming to see her for extractions. Before my first visit she answered all of my questions and made me feel like she really cared before I’d even met her.
I have hundreds of milia and every session she has the patience of a saint, removing each one by hand.
It’s a bit of a painful procedure but she’s so lovely and friendly that I feel at ease the second I step through the door and she always works her magic quickly and carefully, using lots of cooling and soothing aftercare to help calm down my skin.
Over the years, she’s put so much time in to helping me work out what’s causing them and how to prevent future flare ups.
I have been to other places for milia removal in the past but Angela is by far the best (and more reasonably priced than some of the bigger companies). I wouldn’t even dream of going anywhere else now.


Emporium is my go to for facial treatments – Angela is one of London’s best kept secrets. Her technique is superb, far beyond what any branded beauty salon can do.

Anna Marie

I have been going to Angela (Emporium) around 6 years now and she always manages to clear my skin and keep me looking youthful with her up to date advance treatments,My personal favourite is the Green peel and Microneedling facial as well as various body treatments I have had here to .I always leave with a glow and get compliments highly reccomend x


Five-star experience!
Couldn’t recommend Angela (Emporium) more highly! I’ve be going for bespoke facials for a number of years and have always felt a truly pampered. The facials are tailored to your skin type and she is *the best* at milia removal. Angela has always been able to accommodate appointments around my work schedule, and at short notice, and I’ve been more than happy to recommend to friends.


I’ve been going to Angela for the last 25/30 years. In between I’ve tried other places and practitioners but always end up going back to Emporium. Angela understands my skin, right from the beginning when I had acne and pigmentation to now where my skin needs are different. I appreciate her experience and knowledge, my skin looks and feels great. Highly recommend.


Angela’s facials have literally transformed my skin. I met Angela back in October last year, and my only regret is not going to see her sooner. My skin was ruined by a couple of badly chosen laser treatments earlier in the year and after my first facial with Angela I felt so much better about myself, she cleared my skin completely and made me love it again! I think I’m a little addicted to her treatments now, she knows a lot about skin care and tailors the facial to exactly what your skin needs. I’m so happy to have found her. 5/5 review from me!


Excellent Milia Removal
Attended Emporium Treatment Clinic for milia removal. Great experience – friendly, well-priced and effective. Will definitely be recommending to friends.


Angela is a fantastic practitioner and a lovely person. I’ve had many successful facials and treatments with her over the past few years. I trust her advice completely. She’s never pushed any treatments or products, but is always open to suggesting new solutions.


What our customers say

Emporium has been my facial clinic for the past 15 years, I have tried many of their facial options. I recently had the Nlite Rejuvenation laser facial…

Amazing in reducing my open pores and wrinkles.

All the girls are lovely and the working environment is friendly.

What our customers say

I visited the clinic last week for a deep cleanse facial and milia removal. The milia was rather large and had unfortunately become irritated, inflamed and sore. Angela was fantastic and I couldn’t believe how quickly she removed it. She made sure there was as little discomfort as possible, and talked me through everything she was doing. My skin felt wonderful after the facial also! 

I really appreciated Angela giving me advice prior to my appointment, and checking up on how my skin was healing after. 

Great personable service that I fully recommend.
