Thread/spider vein removal
“Extremely friendly staff, don’t make you feel awkward or intimidated at all and the treatment works!”
Thread or spider veins that appear on the face can cause embarrassment and lead to a loss of self-esteem. Small veins are common but difficult to treat unless you visit a skilled and experienced practitioner. Put your trust in Elan Medical Skin Clinic, whose clinical director has more than 30 years’ experience in dermatology.
Veinwave technology has been designed specifically for the medical profession for the safe, effective and relatively painless removal of fine veins. The effect of the treatment is instant - you see the veins disappearing immediately! And once a thread vein has been successfully treated it cannot come back. After the treatment you can resume your everyday activities.
Veinwave technology is designed and manufactured in the UK and is the most effective treatment for spider veins available. Instead of using laser, which some people find painful, Veinwave utilises a gentle radiofrequency current that is delivered via a tiny needle placed over the thread veins.
With many years experience using Veinwave technology, our nurse consultant, Sue Ibrahim understands the emotional distress that thread veins can cause.
Who is vein removal treatment suitable for?
Subject to initial medical screening, both men and women of any age and with all skin types can benefit from the treatment. Campbell de Morgan spots can also be removed using Veinwave. You should NOT have treatment if you are pregnant, are taking anti-coagulant medication, have a pacemaker in situ or if you have any allergies to nickel and gold.
How long does vein removal treatment take?
A single Veinwave treatment will usually take about 5-15 minutes. While improvements can be seen as early as after one treatment, some thread veins require a number of sessions to achieve the desired results.
