ThermaVein is used for safe obliteration of unsightly spider veins on the facial and body skin.
ThermaVein thermocoagulation device delivers controlled doses of high frequency (RF) energy to the blood vessels. An ultra-thin needle precisely delivers the energy to the target site. This prevents the risk of damage to the neighboring tissues.
Radiofrequency current is delivered only to the weak or damaged vessels so that they are immediately closed and obliterated. The outcome is immediately visible. Slight residual redness and swelling resolve quickly after the procedure.
ThermaVein is the only marketed device facilitating the treatment of sensitive areas such as eyelids or nasal mucosa; treatments may be delivered all year round. The procedure is also effective in the treatment of lesions within the neck, shoulders, and other body areas. The procedure lasts about 15 minutes. It facilitates obliteration of ca. 150 mm of vessels. The procedure is very simple and precise ThermaVein emits a short pulse of microwaves lasting about 0.2 second. The energy penetrates the target site to the maximum depth of 1.5 mm (corresponding to the size of a head of a pin or a grain of sand). The energy obliterates the vessels making them invisible.
ThermaVein was approved by the FDA for use in safe obliteration of spider veins and telangiectasias.
Should the procedure be repeated?
One procedure is sufficient for most customers. When the problem is more advanced, additional sessions may be required. Unfortunately, many causes (alcohol consumption, exposure to sunlight, etc.) may lead to the development of new lesions. In such cases, elimination or avoidance of causes is necessary.
When can the outcomes be expected?
Immediately. Vessels disappear immediately after being touched by the needle. The movies presented on the page are 100% authentic and similar outcomes may be expected. The procedure has no effect on daily activities.
Other treatment methods may restrict patient’s freedom for up to 8 weeks. Possible aftermath of a ThermaVein procedure is as mild as slight erythema or swelling. These are observed in some patients only, while most are capable of immediately resuming all daily activities.
The only contraindications consists in allergy to nickel, pregnancy, and epilepsy. The procedure may be performed on all skin types throughout the year. There are no contraindications for any daily activities. In contrast to other methods, patients do not have to avoid exposure to sunlight, although tanning in strong sunlight is not recommended.
Is the procedure painful?
Everyone has different tolerance to pain. Some patients may not notice that the procedure has already started; for others, the sensation may be comparable to that of a hair being pulled out. For others, however, the procedure may be quite painful. We guarantee that the discomfort is relieved when the procedure is completed.
Most patients who had undergone laser treatments before claimed that Thermavein procedure was much more bearable. In contrast to other methods such as IPL, the procedure has no known side effects. No bruises, scars, etc. develop after the procedure.
