Thread Vein

Thread veins are small blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin, making them more noticeable. Thread Veins are most commonly found on the cheeks nose and chin. ThermaVein is a safe, instant and can be a long-term treatment for the removal of unsightly facial veins.

ThermaVein uses thermocoagulation to heat up the protein in the blood. This is a process that seals off the vein walls, causing the vein to disappear. ThermaVein is a preferred alternative to laser treatments, as fewer sessions are required and it is considerably less painful.

ThermaVein uses a probe the size of a human hair. It is applied along the problematic vein and several pulses of heat are delivered until the whole area is treated.
