Thread Veins – Beaconsfield

Thread veins or spider veins or broken small capillaries are small facial red veins that commonly appear around the nose, cheeks, and eyelids. They are often caused by many years of unprotected sun exposure, genetics, smoking or extended years of alcoholic consumption.

VeinAway thermocoagulation, is the most respected technology on the market today, and is used extensively in the USA as well as our Beaconsfield clinic. It is the safest way to reduce and remove thread veins/spider veins with just minimal discomfort.

Sharp bursts of high energy are carefully probed onto each micro-vein, causing the blood vein walls to collapse, be shut off, and die. The sight of each vein therefore disappears, leaving the skin clear and unblemished.

How many treatments will be needed?

It may take two or even three treatments of around 15 minutes to remove the veins altogether. However, this depends on the number of veins that need treating around the nose, cheeks, lips, eyelids, and eyes. At your free assessment with Jacqui Bannister, you will be given the expected number of treatments, cost, recovery time, and a chance to ask any questions.

Is having Thread Veins treated, painful?

There is minimal discomfort. At our clinics, over the last 15 years, similar methods have been used to remove thread veins, but we have found the feedback for VeinAway to be much more positive than the other brands tried. The most sensitive area is the nose, but as your welfare is paramount, your treatment with Jacqui will be very safe and given with extreme care and understanding.

How will my face look after treatment?

  • Your skin may feel warm around the treated area.
  • Some larger veins on the face may appear to be still visible in the days following treatment. This is normal but they may require a further treatment within 6 weeks.

Thread Veins or the small red veins on the side of the nose, chin, or cheeks do not have to be permanent. If the correct technology is used, such as VeinAway, and is performed safely by an expert such as Skin Revision, then the veins will disappear permanently.
