ThermaVein® - Thread Vein Removal
Thread Vein and Spider Vein removal treatments in Southport use ThermaVein® - the gold standard in thread vein removal. The treatment provides instant, safe and permanent results.
the benefits of ThermaVein®:
ThermaVein® is one of the latest procedures available here at Elixir Skin Clinic. It is a very popular non-invasive treatment to remove or reduce thread veins/spider veins. Thread veins can appear unsightly, leading to many trying to cover these up with make-up. They appear typically on the face or legs and can also be called ‘broken veins’ or ‘surface veins’. Many facial thread veins are caused by sun damage to your skin, which is also the root cause of lots of other facial blemishes and skin problems. Treatment is also suitable for all skin types!
ThermaVein® uses heat to destroy the veins. There are no chemicals involved, no injections and no incisions. A very low current of 4MHz is used during treatment. The low current and the fact that ThermaVein® does not treat the blood means ThermaVein® is very safe for patients. ThermaVein® does not use laser, IPL or injections, and simply uses a process called Thermocoagulation. This works by gently joining the two walls of the vein together.
Using Thermavein, we can also treat Melia (small white dots), Skin tags, Campbell-de-Morgan spots (red dots or bumps) and ankle thread veins. 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 Sclerotherapy, 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 that protects the skin, enabling a targeted action, delivering the treatment with precision.
