Introduction to Thermo-Coagulation
VeinWave Thermo-coagulation was developed and designed to eradicate red veins; thread veins; red blood spots, spider naevi and vascular blemishes. The principle is based on the action Radio Frequency producing a thermal (heat) lesion with protection of the skin. The wave penetrates the sub-epidermal layer of skin and is very superficial, it will pass into the vessel and push the blood out causing the vein to collapse and the walls of the vessel stick together, and so the body will remove this debris as part of the healing process, results are permanent.
Down time is minimal, some redness and dryness may occur for a few days, allow 28 days between appointments for full healing and removal of areas worked on. In most cases only one treatment is necessary, however if there are a large number of vessels, blood spots etc. more than one treatment could be required for optimum results. A follow up appointment is normally booked after one month post treatment.
All skin types and skin colour can be treated without any risk of pigmentation changes.
