What is Thermavein?

ThermaVein is a machine which uses a very low current 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 micro-sclerotherapy, and rosacea in combination with IPL and medication.

What are thread veins?

Thread veins are medically known as telangiectasia or spider veins. They are small, dilated blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. They often resemble fine red or purple lines or web-like patterns.

Where do thread veins appear?

Thread veins commonly occur on the face, legs, and other areas of the body. They are primarily a cosmetic concern rather than a health risk.
While they may not pose a significant threat to physical health, their presence can cause self-consciousness. They can also start to affect one’s confidence and quality of life.

What causes thread veins?

The causes of thread veins are varied and can include genetics, hormonal changes, sun exposure, aging, pregnancy, obesity, and prolonged standing or sitting.
Essentially, any condition that causes the veins to become weak or dilated can contribute to the development of thread veins. While they are more prevalent in older individuals, they can affect people of any age and gender.


Thread Vein Improvement – are they harmless?

Although thread veins are generally harmless, many individuals seek treatment to eliminate or reduce their appearance for cosmetic reasons. There are several reasons why it’s positive to get rid of thread veins:
Enhanced Self-Confidence: Visible thread veins can lead to self-consciousness and a lack of confidence, particularly in social situations. By removing thread veins, individuals can feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance. This can positively impact their overall well-being and quality of life.
Improved Skin Appearance: Thread veins can detract from the natural beauty of the skin, giving it a blotchy or uneven appearance. By eliminating these visible veins, the skin can appear smoother, clearer, and more youthful. This enhances its overall appearance and texture.
Minimised Discomfort: In some cases, thread veins may be associated with symptoms such as itching, burning, or aching sensations. By treating thread veins, individuals can alleviate these discomforting symptoms and improve their overall comfort and quality of life.
Prevention of Progression: While thread veins may start as a minor cosmetic concern, they can potentially worsen over time if left untreated. By addressing thread veins early on, individuals can prevent their progression. It can also help to reduce the likelihood of developing more severe vascular issues in the future.

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.

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. If you have a very large number of thread veins you will probably require a second and maybe a third treatment session.
