ThermaVein uses a unique process called thermocoagulation to erase unwanted veins on the neck, face and hands. As well as treating thread veins, ThermaVein can also treat other conditions like rosacea and vascular blemishes.
On the tip of the ThermaVein pen there is a very fine needle probe which is tapped on the vein for the less than 0.2 seconds. The probe delivers a pulse of energy which is then absorbed by the vein, causing it to become sealed. This prevents blood from flowing through the vein which means that it will no longer be visible from the surface. This process is repeated at intervals along the length of the vein. Once sealed, the unwanted vein is then absorbed back into the body without a trace.
The results of the treatment are fast and most patients will be able to see a significant difference (if not complete clearance) after just one session of ThermaVein at the Light Touch Clinic.
How many treatments will I need?
ThermaVein is very effective and most patients will require just one session. However, sometimes patients will need up to three sessions.
How long does the treatment take?
A typical treatment will take no more than a quarter of an hour.
Does it hurt?
Patients often remark that the sensation of the treatment is similar to plucking a hair or pinching. After a ThermaVein session, patients will not usually experience any further pain or unpleasant sensations, unlike other treatments.
How long before I can expect to see results?
One of the great things about ThermaVein is that patients can see results fast. Indeed, most patients can see the veins disappear before their eyes when they are touched by the tip of the ThermaVein. For most people, it takes just one treatment to totally eradicate thread veins.
How long is the recovery period?
Most can go about your life unaffected after treatment.
Will ThermaVein remove unwanted veins forever?
While ThermaVein will remove the visible veins, it does not treat the cause which means that there is a chance that new thread veins may develop in new areas.
At the Light Touch Clinic we have a number of ThermaVein experts to zap away unwanted veins. Please call the clinic on 01932849552 to book your appointment.
