What does ThermaVein do?
ThermaVein offers the instant, safe and permanent removal of Thread Veins, Spider Veins medically referred to as “telangiectasia”. There are a variety of more commonly used names to include thread veins, spider veins, rosacea and vascular blemishes.
ThermaVein machine was developed in collaboration with Dr Brian Newman M.D., FRCS the pioneer of a process called “thermocoagulation”. This process is not IPL, Laser or Epilation – all of which are alternatives used to treat the condition with varying results and a range of unpleasant side effects. The treatment offers consistent results, no known-side effects and the highest safety rating – this makes us the natural choice for businesses and consumers alike.
We strongly believe that our exclusive technology is the safest and most effective available. The technology has existed within the medical industry for almost 15 years, without issue and is backed by clinical trials.
Already thousands of successful treatments have been completed worldwide, the unique process is acclaimed by international industry experts. After years of operating solely within the medical industry we are now proud to bring a simple and cost effective treatment to the wider public – simply called ThermaVein.
ThermaVein Treatment FAQ
How long does a treatment take?
A typical treatment should take no more than 15 minutes, immediately after this time the patient will see a significant improvement in their condition if not a total eradication.
How many treatments will a typical patient require?
Many patients can be treated in just one session, depending on the extent of their condition, from 1 to 3 treatments are required to achieve desirable effect.
How long before patients sees results?
Results are instant. The treatment is very visual and you will notice the veins disappear as they are touched with the pen. This leads to a real “Wow!” response the first time the client looks in a mirror. This is a stark contrast to alternative treatments which can take 6-8 weeks and many sessions.
Does the treatment cure the condition?
The treatment will remove visible signs of the condition and in many cases it will not recur. There are a wide range of underlying causes to the condition which may lead to new areas developing. If this happens a top up treatment will clear the condition. If there are concerns of recurrence we generally advise a review of the patient 8 weeks after the treatment if possible and a yearly review can stop any new areas developing.
Are there any known side effects?
Unlike with other treatments, such as Laser or IPL, there are no known side effects. The patient suffers no bruising, scarring or similar and there is no downtime – many people go back to work or shopping immediately after treatment. In addition there is no requirement to avoid sunlight, as with other treatments, although we do recommend sun protector as general skin care advice. This treatment doesn’t burn and is very accurate, most clients feel a little pinching sensation which we are informed is easily bared.
How long is the recovery period?
We appreciate that other treatments require up to 8 weeks recovery, during which time your actions can be severely restricted. As ThermaVein uses a very different technique there is no downtime at all, patients walk out of the treatment and back into their lives unaffected.
Is it painful for the patient?
We are unable to classify our treatment as pain-free as different individuals have varying tolerance levels. We are regularly told from patients that they hardly feel a thing to the extent that many are unsure when the treatment has started. It has been likened to a pinching sensation or having a hair plucked. This compares favourably to other treatment methods which can be very painful and also damaging to the patient. Any sensation felt by the client during treatment will subside as soon as treatment stops. We are well aware that many alternative treatments can leave patients in substantial discomfort for prolonged periods of time.
How does the treatment work?
The treatment is an incredibly simple and accurate process. ThermaVein delivers a tiny microwave current for under 0.2 second at a time, this current travels a maximum of 1.5mm into the treatment area. By comparison this is a similar size to the head of a pin or a grain of sand. The technique causes the vein to close and then the current causes it to instantly disappear.
We already use Laser/IPL/Epilators – is there a difference?
Our product differs substantially from all of the above across all areas to include results, downtime and safety. A major benefit when compared to the above is that ThermaVein cannot cause burns, scarring or bruising – all common side effects of alternative treatments.
What areas can be treated?
Face, neck and hands. We would strongly advice against treating any other areas of the body as there are a range of similar looking medical conditions that may appear similar but are not treatable and attempted treatment may cause the patient issues.
Can all skin complexions be treated ?
Yes, the unit is safe to use on all skin types, but if you have any concerns a discreet patch test should be carried out first
What conditions will ThermaVein treat?
Spider veins, Thread veins, Telangiectasia, Nose Veins, Facial redness, Blemishes, Skin Tag.
Treatment cost is £180 per one area.
