WHAT IS VARICOSE AND SPIDER VEINS?
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged due to weakened valves. This causes them to become visible and prominent underneath the surface of the skin, their weak valves causing blood to pool rather than flow to the heart like it should.
Typically purple or dark blue in colour, varicose veins usually develop in the lower legs and often have a characteristic bulge-like appearance. Spider veins are much smaller in size, often red or blue in colour and residing close to the skin’s upper layer – these veins are equally apparent on the face, calves, thighs or ankles.
In addition to sometimes being painful, varicose veins in particular can cause sufferers to feel very self-conscious and embarrassed due to their appearance.
Here at PureSkin, we use advanced technology from the bespoke Soprano Ice. One of the leading pioneers in aesthetic procedures, the Soprano Ice utilises cutting-edge light technology to eliminate both varicose and spider veins.
A laser fibre is inserted into the vein through a small cut, and targeted light energy is delivered. The vein wall instantly absorbs this light, causing the blood to coagulate and the vein to eventually collapse.
As varicose veins are continually treated with this procedure, the entire length of the vein will be destroyed and absorbed by the body to reveal smooth, clear skin.
Spider veins require a slightly less intense procedure. Heat and specific light wavelengths are still used, but no fibre needs to be inserted into the vein.

What To Expect
When receiving treatment solely for small spider veins, you’re unlikely to feel pain. At most, you may feel minimal discomfort but the vast majority of clients find it easily tolerable.
But, for varicose vein removal, a local anaesthetic will be applied to ensure no pain is experienced whilst the laser fibre is being inserted.
Treatment time will considerably vary dependent on how many spider/varicose veins need to be treated. And, whilst you may immediately notice a reduction in vein appearance after just one treatment, a series of sessions is recommended to eliminate them altogether.
I recently had 6 skin tightening sessions with Nora and I have to say the results have been astonishing. Not only does my complexion look more even I’ve also lost my double chin.. With visible results seen some of my friends are now seeing Nora for their skin treatments. I’m delighted with the results and I’m looking forward to having laser hair removal sessions with Nora in the new year.
This Clinic is a hidden gem! The treatments and equipment they have hear are the same as the likes of Harrods but half the price. The customer service is amazing and Nora makes you feel like you have been with her for years and years immediately! This lady really knows her skin science and I am happy to leave all my skin needs to her with no questions asked. The clinic is very well run and looks nice and clean as well as medical. I highly recommend you try this Clinic as you will not be disappointed. Thank you Nora 🙂
Extremely happy with the service. I did the laser hair removal treatment for my chest & back and very happy with the result. I like the flexible payment option. Will be booking for my next session very soon
After having a baby, I lost drastic weight and ended up having a lot of stretch marks. Attending to regular treatment with Nora, helped to fade away my stretch marks. The treatments were so good that I decided to get other treatments done too such as underarms and clear lift. The result of these treatments are just as expected. I am very happy with the result and I cannot emphasise the excellent services and the professionalism carried throughout my treatments. Highly recommended!
Amazing clinic! I have now had three laser treatments on my underarms and they are feeling gloriously smooth, can’t wait for the last few treatments! The staff are so polite and welcoming, you feel very comfortable.
