The above chart relates only to the use of specified technologies for removal of facial veins.

ThermaVein® offers the instant, safe and permanent treatment for red veins often referred to as  thread veins or spider veins and medically referred to as “telangiectasia”. ThermaVein® delivers a fast and effective walk in walk out total solution for the treatment of red veins and vascular blemishes.

 

Red veins are cosmetically unsightly and are too fine to be treated in the same way as larger veins. Our ThermaVein® thermo-coagulation device offers a complete solution, is a totally safe treatment, is clinically proven and is permanent.

 

Equipped with a polarisation light system the practitioner introduces a fine needle over the vein and in most cases it disappears instantaneously. There is no bandaging required.

 

Unlike IPL and Lasers, ThermaVein® cannot cause loss of pigmentation. It treats red spots, a variety of vascular blemishes and troublesome red veins.  When used in combination with Scelerotherapy, ThermaVein®  is perfect for treating legs.  ThermaVein® can be used equally well on men.

 

The sterile needle, for single use, is covered with an insulating sheath which protects the skin, enabling a targeted action, delivering the treatment with precison.

 

 

ThermaVein® is used by leading aesthetic clinics worldwide for the safe and instant removal of red veins and other vascular blemishes.  Veins on the face, such as Spider Nevus can be unsightly but are very simple to treat. ThermaVein® does not use laser, IPL or injections, and simply uses a process called Thermocoagulation.  Thermocoagulation works by gently joining the two walls of the vein together.

Thermavein has a very good success rate and usually succeeds in its purpose, as with all cosmetic procedures it cannot be guaranteed.  Therefore, there is a possibility it may not work for you.
