Frequently Asked Questions

What is Thermavein?

Facial thread veins are a very common problem – especially in this part of the world. They can affect all ages and have many causes – weather, diet, genetics and pregnancy. They occur in both men and women and can appear anywhere on the face, but most obviously around the nose and cheek areas.
Here in the clinic we offer Thermavein® treatment which has revolutionised the treatment of facial veins. Thermavein® technology has been used safely for many years within the area of medical aesthetics.

How does it work?

A tiny probe (the size of a hair) is rested above the vein and a pulse of energy is used to seal off the vein. This is repeated along the length of the vein until it is permanently closed and the vein disappears permanently.

How long does the treatment take?

Because this is a medical procedure, the first part of your appointment will involve an assessment of your skin and your consent to treatment. During the treatment, you will feel your skin heating up and your skin will become red. This should calm down quickly, but may last for a few days depending on your skin type. The appointment should last approximately half an hour. If you require further treatments, this can be carried out in 4 – 6 weeks although normally one treatment is all that is required.

Who performs the treatment?

All of the treatments are performed by Dr. Holloway who has been trained in the safe use of the Thermavein® machine.
