Facial Vein Removal

ThermaVein is a non-invasive approach to treating tiny but unattractive facial veins, or “telangiectasia.” … ThermaVein treats these unwanted facial veins by delivering a microburst of current through the surface of the skin.

ThermaVein FAQ’s

What is ThermaVein?

ThermaVein is a machine which uses microwaves delivered through a needle the width of a hair. Although originally designed for the treatment of facial thread veins, ThermaVein has several other uses.

What conditions can ThermaVein be used to treat?

ThermaVein can be used to treat: facial thread veins, milia (small white dots usually on the face), skin tags, Campbell de Morgan spots (red dots or bumps anywhere on the body), blackheads, small red leg veins (stand-alone treatment), leg veins in combination with microsclerotherapy, and rosacea in combination with IPL and medication.

What causes facial thread veins?

The most common causes of facial thread veins (telangiectasia) are: ageing, sun exposure, fragile skin, injury, pregnancy and birth, excess alcohol, rosacea and scar tissue.

What is special about ThermaVein?

ThermaVein delivers a very small microwave current for under 0.2s at a time, which travels a maximum of 1.5mm into the treatment area. When compared with laser or IPL thread vein treatments, ThermaVein is very precise and safe, minimising trauma to surrounding tissue. ThermaVein truly is the gold standard treatment for facial thread veins. ThermaVein is also the only treatment available for thread veins on the septum of the nose or on the eyelid.

What does ThermaVein treatment involve?

The treatment itself will last no more than 15 minutes, regardless of the number of veins you have. A 15-minute treatment is the maximum time recommended. More often than not, ThermaVein treatment lasts less than 15 minutes.

Does ThermaVein treatment hurt?

Most people don’t find ThermaVein painful, but describe it as a tingling sensation or a hair being plucked. Skin tag treatments involve more intense treatment to a small area and as such can feel more tender.

Is there anything I should avoid doing after ThermaVein treatment?

Avoid intense exercise, saunas, steam rooms and sun exposure for 48 hours after treatment.

Who should avoid ThermaVein treatments?

Although Thermavein is a very safe treatment, there are some people who should avoid it: pregnant women, epileptic patients, people who have applied fake tan (a genuine suntan is not a problem)

Will one ThermaVein be enough for me?

The number of treatments depends on the size of the area to be treated. As explained above the maximum time we can treat in one sitting is 15 minutes. If you have a very large number of thread veins you will probably require a second and maybe a third treatment session.
