Do you have unwanted thread veins? Do you wish they were removed?

thread vein removal

Thread Vein removal and the treating of thread veins is an easy process thanks to our advanced ThermaVein system.

Thread veins (also known as spider veins or broken capillaries) are old, unused or enlarged capillaries. They are found just underneath the surface of the skin and appear as fine red or purple lines. The most common areas where thread veins can be found are on the nose and cheek. Less commonly they are found on the ears and chin.

Although there is no exact known cause, they are thought to be a symptom of age, sun exposure, alcohol smoking and those people who have suffered from acne or rosacea. Thread veins are harmless, but can cause self-esteem issues if they cover large areas of the face.

Thread Vein Removal (Broken Capillaries)

Treating and removing thread veins is an easy process thanks to our advanced ThermaVein system.

Our initial consultation and patch test will identify the areas of your face and body that need treatment and we’ll be able to check you will have no reaction to the treatment.

The ThermaVein system quickly and efficiently removes thread veins from the face and body using short bursts of high-frequency current passed through a small needle. This current effectively seals off the vein, allowing the body to remove it naturally.

There is minimal pain or discomfort felt and no anaesthetic required. Immediately following the removal of your thread veins you will possibly find some slight redness around the treated area but this will gradually disperse over 24-48 hours (depending on the length of the treatment). It is also possible that a small scab may form due to the tiny release of some blood. But the removal of thread veins on the nose, cheeks and other facial areas is very safe with little chance of any scaring,providing you follow the post care instructions given to you.

The whole treatment can be carried out within 30 minutes (depending on the severity of your thread veins).

Before & After

Your Questions Answered

Yes. Once removed the thread veins will not return.

Very unlikely. With squeezing NHS budgets, this procedure is now considered cosmetic, so your GP is unlikely to perform the removal.

Immediately after the treatment, redness may occur and some very slight scabbing. This is perfectly normal and nothing of concern.

There is minimal pain or discomfort felt and no anaesthetic required.

A treatment should last no more than 30minutes. This may depend on the number and location of the tread veins you wish to have removed.

Once the session is complete, we will discuss with you what the proper after care routine is and how to ensure the best results of the procedure.

There are no specific requirements before the treatment. We suggest not to apply any cosmetics beforehand. You should let us know about any recent medical conditions and medications taken.

It is also possible that a small scab may form due to the tiny release of some blood. But the removal of thread veins on the nose, cheeks and other facial areas is very safe with little chance of any scaring providing you follow the post care instructions given to you.
