Thread veins (also known as Spider Veins) can be the bane of a person’s life, but with the help of innovative treatments such as Veinwave at Whitethorn Fields MediClinic in Aylesbury, we can help to restore confidence and self esteem. Some people will suffer from thread veins which are barely noticeable but if you know the veins are there, they can seem far more obvious and it can leave you feeling very self-conscious. Our team at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic understand how veins can affect everyday life and our professional approach can help to bring back the old you.
Veinwave for vein removal – how does it work?
This is a relatively new treatment and it is used for veins on the face. Thread veins are generally quite harmless and rarely cause pain, but they can be unsightly, so removing them is often the best option. The process used is called microthermocoagulation – and it is much simpler than it sounds! Our team will want to make sure that you fully understand the process before you have Veinwave so if you have any questions then be sure to ask at the initial consultation.
Microthermocoagulation is a process which sends high frequency microwaves into the vein using a fine probe. The probe only enters the skin by a tiny fraction but it is enough to heat the vein and destroy it. The blood which was held within the vein is sent back into the tissue leaving not visible trace of the vein. This is not a slow process and our team will be able to advise you more precisely on how long you should expect it to take, but if you only have a couple of veins to be treated you can be in and out in no time at all.
Veinwave for vein removal – what should I expect?
The process of using Veinwave should give a lasting result and you should not expect to be spending a lot of time at the Clinic. There is slight discomfort associated with this treatment but if you have any concerns at all about this, our experts are on hand to help. Before you have the treatment our practitioners will make sure that your skin is clean and make-up free in order to achieve the best results.
The skin may appear red following the treatment and a small scab may form, but this is perfectly normal and should subside in a day or two. Here at Whitethorn Fields Mediclinic in Aylesbury we believe that the aftercare is just as important as the treatment and you will be advised by our professional practitioners to keep out of strong sunlight. If you do need to venture out you can use a sun block to protect the treated area.
Veinwave – Who can benefit from this treatment?
One of the good things about Veinwave is that there are very few people who may not be able to have it. Anyone who has the misfortune to suffer from thread veins will find that this type of treatment can be beneficial. There have been cases where people have not responded well to laser but have seen immediate results with Veinwave. This treatment can treat thread and spider veins but can not treat varicose veins.
Having your confidence affected by the appearance of thread veins can be difficult and getting your confidence back can be even harder. With the help of innovative treatments like this, our friendly and professional practitioners can give you back the self esteem that you crave, but why stop there? We offer a range of treatments that can help to restore the old you, dealing with issues such as fine lines and discolouration.
