I am pleased to announce that we have just acquired a ThermaVein machine for thread veins and spider veins
ThermaVein is the instant, effective and safe treatment for thread veins and spider veins, medically known as telangiectasia.
ThermaVein uses a unique process known as micro thermocoagulation that seals thread vein walls causing them to permanently disappear. Thermocoagulation is a form of high frequency microwave energy that is delivered individually to each vein via a fine skin probe. Depending on the site, discomfort is either none or minimal. It has been described as being like having a hair plucked. Patients will see thread veins immediately disappear as the treatment is administered.
This thermocoagulation works in a very different way to the alternatives, laser and IPL. Laser and IPL treatments for thread veins commonly require numerous treatments, often 3-6 treatments about 3-4 weeks apart. The results can take weeks to show. In addition Laser and IPL can be painful and may pose the risk of bruising, scarring and pigmentation.
With ThermaVein there is no risk of bruising, scarring or pigmentation unlike many other alternative treatments. Effective results are usually achieved in one 20-minute session. Some redness may develop after treatment and this will subside over 1-2 days.
ThermaVein is a development of VeinWave that has been clinically proven to be safe and effective over the last few years.
On Friday 15th February I had a ThermaVein treatment to the thread veins on my nose. See below for the photo taken immediately before and immediately after treatment.
I will post further photos of the result over the next few weeks.
