TV’s Carol Smillie Talks About Her Thread Vein and Laser Hair Removal Treatment.

Earlier this month, Scottish TV presenter and former model Carol Smillie sat down with the Daily Record to talk all about her thread vein and laser hair removal treatment.

The 53 year-old mother of three revealed that she began to feel self-conscious of the thread veins on her legs after overhearing a hurtful comment made by a stranger whilst on holiday.

But, after undergoing sclerotherapy treatment and laser hair removal, Carol once again has pins to be proud of!
“Having had three children, with each pregnancy the veins in my legs became worse and crept further down my legs. It was alright when they were high up – I could live with that because my mini skirt days are definitely over. But it got worse and worse. I remember standing on the beach when I was pregnant with my third child and I heard a woman talking about my legs as if I wasn’t there. That’s not why I had the treatment done but it was quite hurtful at the time,” explained Carol when talking to the Daily Record.

“I’m not good with needles but it’s just the finest needle. The treatment was very good and it did the job. I would definitely recommend it if it’s something that bothers you,” she added.

For those who may not know, sclerotherapy treatment is a non-surgical treatment that aims to improve the look of prominent and unflattering veins in a number of areas of the body, including the legs. The treatment involves injecting the unwanted vein with sclerosing liquid through a fine needle. This solution causes the vein walls to swell and stick together before fading, resulting in a visibly improved appearance the prominent vein.

Carol also underwent laser hair removal treatment to rid her legs of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal treatment uses light energy to effectively destroy the hair follicle and prevent the treated body hair from regrowing. The treatment works by penetrating the hair with beams of light energy that use pigmentation within the hair to travel down the hair shaft and destroy the follicle.
