Q. WHAT ARE THREAD VEINS?
A. Thread veins are very fine blood vessels visible near the surface of the skin. Thread or 'spider veins' (medically known as telangiectasias) tend to run in families, and can also also be caused by trauma to the skin or through sun exposure.
Q.What is the procedure to remove red veins?
A. A tiny probe the size of a human hair, is rested above the vein to close it together. A pulse of 0.2 seals the vein and the process is repeated until the vein is permanently closed. The treatment takes minutes for one vein, you may need one or two sessions to get rid of the veins.
Q.Is it safe?
A. Yes it is safe and medically approved by registered consultants. Esteem Beauty have been trained and qualified to use the treatment. When administered properly the treatment should not leave any scarring or pigmentation on the skin. You can walk out of the salon after your treatment with no problems. Effective results are usually achieved in one 20-minute session and the successful treatment can be clearly viewed instantly. Larger areas may take longer to complete and a recovery period will be required.
Q.Is it pain free?
A. Everyone varies in the degree of sensitivity to pain, and it also depends on the part of the body as some areas are more sensitive than others. The area around the nose is always more sensitive as there is a lack of flesh in this area. The pain has been described like a hair being pulled out.
Q.What will I need to do before or after treatment?
A. Aloe Vera should be applied to the area treated after treatment
Q.Are there any side effects?
A. After having Thermavein on the face, your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight. Your consultant should provide you with minimum SPF factor 30 sun cream to protect your skin after treatment. The amount of time you need to be careful in the sun depends on how much Thermavein you have had so check with your consultant how long you should take precautions. The treatment can be used on any skin type and any age.
Q.How long does it last?
The treatment is typically permanent and will usually remove all visible signs of the underlying condition. In some cases, the veins can recur, but a top-up treatment will usually resolve the issue.
Q. What are skin tags?
Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured growths that hang off the skin and look a bit like warts. They're very common, harmless, and can vary in colour and size – from a few millimetres up to 5cm (about 2 inches) wide.
Not to be used in
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or active infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why you should not undergo this treatment.

Suffer from infectious skin conditions.
Have a pacemaker.
Have fake tan product on the skin.
This can vary dependent on certain skin types and conditions and the size of the vein(s). Aloe Vera should be applied to the area treated after treatment
