Red Vein Removal

Red Veins.

Red veins are also known as Telangiectasia, broken veins, dilated capillaries, thread veins or naevi. They are often found on the face and legs although can appear on the chest and rib area- front and back.

Treatment.

The treatment consists of a sterilised, disposable needle that is applied lightly to the surface of the capillary. There is an electrical current which produces a heating effect and when applied to the capillary the structure and its contents coagulate (dries up & shuts down).

The area is then treated with witch hazel a few days following procedure to encourage the healing process which can take anywhere between 7-10 days. This method only treats veins that are oxygenated, which means they must be red in colour.

The treatment takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes in total depending on how many I am treating.

All areas on the body can be treated, the important thing to remember is that the veins themselves must be oxygenated, meaning they must be red in colour not blue or purple.

When the current is administered there is a little heat sensation, but it is comfortable.

Immediately after the treatment, the skin is pink and can be a little swollen occasionally. The following day the area appears dry and is recommended to keep it hydrated. The area can be covered with makeup the following day if needed, and averagely the skin heals within 7-10 days.
