The Gold Standard in Thread Vein Removal Treatments
ThermaVein® is a gentle, yet effective treatment used to remove thread veins. This treatment offers an instant, safe and permanent treatment for thread veins or spider veins.
Small blue or red veins at the surface of the skin can be a problem for many people. Medically known as ‘telangiectasia’, these small veins are hard to cover with makeup and have an ageing and unhealthy look which can spoil the complexion and be unappealing.
ThermaVein® is a clinically proven method which offers instant and permanent results in removing annoying vein problems.
ThermaVein® is a very safe treatment which deploys specially designed technology, using to seal the thread vein walls in a process called ‘Thermocoagulation’. Thermocoagulation works by gently joining the two walls of the vein together. ThermaVein® is based on a high frequency wave producing a thermal lesion within the vein. A small probe is used, through which a low radiofrequency current of 4Mhz is applied to the skin, changing the consistency of the vein walls so that they stick together and become sealed. Once the veins are sealed, they are gradually re-absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system, leaving the skin clearer than before.
The treatment is an incredibly simple and accurate process. ThermaVein delivers a tiny microwave current for under 0.2 second at a time, these current travels a maximum of 1.5mm into the treatment area. By comparison this is a similar size to the head of a pin or a grain of sand. The technique causes the vein to close and then the current causes it to instantly disappear. Once the vein is closed off, blood can no longer flow through it, which means that it cannot be seen underneath the surface of the skin. Results are instantaneous.
ThermaVein® is not just for veins – the machine can also help with other conditions too. ThermaVein® can be used to help:
