Veinwave Thermo-coagulation
  • I have visible facial veins
  • I have thread veins on my face
  • I have spider veins on my face

Veinwave Thermo-coagulation is an effective solution for treating small veins, such as spider or thread veins, which can be cosmetically unsightly on the nose and cheeks. A very fine needle is inserted into the vein and it disappears instantaneously.

Spider or thread veins can be very fine but also cosmetically unsightly. The thermo-coagulation of Veinwave is an effective solution for treating small veins on the face, such as those troublesome areas on the nose and cheeks.

Thermo-coagulation is based on a high frequency wave producing a thermal lesion with the protection of the skin. Guided by a magnifying lens, a very fine needle is inserted into the vein and it disappears instantaneously. The single use sterile needle, is covered with an insulating sheath which protects the skin, enabling a targeted action.

The sensation is similar to a warm pin prick, others relate it to a minor sting which doesn't linger - often it depends upon the location of the treatment.

Immediately after the treatment you can resume everyday activities, however it is advisable to avoid the sun for a couple of days or use sun block. After a few days very small micro crusts like the marks from a cat scratch can appear where Veinwave has been applied. This is normal and no special care is required and generally heals within a few days.

A top up treatment may be necessary if any small veins remain. As with any treatment it is possible to develop more thread veins but those too can be treated.
