What is the procedure for treatment of facial veins ?

Facial veins can be treated with Veinwave, Lasers or Intense Pulse Light Therapy. Several treatments may be required. When new vessels appear, patients return for more treatments.

What is veinwave? 

This a relatively new treatment and is an excellent method of treating facial thread veins. It uses a very fine needle that is inserted several times along the vein and a small microwave current is passed into the middle of the vein therefore causing 'thermo coagulation' (heat sealing) reaction, which may cause the vein to disappear instantly.

Immediately post treatment you may be a little red but following an application of an ice pack/cold compress this settles quickly.

Who is suitable for Veinwave? 

For the majority of people they do require two treatment sessions, each one spaced 4 weeks apart. On some occasions may need more treatment sessions. Following a full medical history and consultation including pre-treatment photographs the actual procedure is relatively smooth and may take up to 15-30 minutes and is relatively pain free. Unfortunately Veinwave treatment would not be suitable due to its nature of microwave currents if you have a pacemaker fitted or if you suffer with epilepsy.
