Thread Vein Treatments
What is it?

Thread veins, or spider veins, are small dilated blood vessels that often appear near the surface of the skin. They are usually red, blue, or purple in colour and can be found on the legs, face, and chest. While they are typically harmless, many people choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.

 

Thermocoagulation is a type of thread vein treatment that uses heat to destroy the veins. A small probe is inserted into the vein and heated to a high temperature, which causes the vein to collapse and disappear. It is generally safe and effective but may require multiple treatments to completely remove the veins.

Thermocoagulation is the best form of treatment as it is minimally invasive, causes little discomfort, and has a high success rate. In addition, it can be used to treat very small veins that cannot be treated with other methods.

How it works

Thermocoagulation works by heating the vein to a high temperature, which causes the vein to collapse and disappear. The heat also damages the surrounding tissue, which helps to prevent new veins from forming.

The procedure is safe as it only damages the vein and not the surrounding tissue, ensuring that there is little downtime as well as the fact that it works on all skin types. It is also an effective treatment, with most patients seeing a significant improvement after just one treatment. However, some veins may require multiple treatments to completely disappear.

Benefits
