Leg and Facial Vein Treatment Details
At Vamp Cosmetic Clinic, we offer a combination treatment using light energy and radiofrequency to treat thread and spider veins. These are usually non-protruding, red, blue or purple in colour and appear near the surface of the skin on the face and legs. They increase with age and pregnancy. The treatment targets veins ranging in size from 0.5-2.0mm (veins <0.5mm, such as small red spider veins on the face may be treated with photorejuvenation).
IS THE TREATMENT SAFE AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Thread and spider veins are not considered a serious medical condition so treatment of these is safe and straight forward. The treatment only takes a few minutes for a single area.
WILL I FEEL IT?
The treatment is uncomfortable but discomfort is minimised with use of a numbing cream applied complimentary with this treatment.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME ASSOCIATED WITH THE TREATMENT?
The procedure directly targets the vein leaving the surrounding skin intact so there is not downtime associated with this procedure. Exercise and excessively hot environments e.g. saunas, spas should be avoided for 3-5 days to prevent the vessel from reappearing
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
Any area can be treated but thread and spider veins usually appear on the legs and face.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed varies but it usually takes around 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 6-8 weeks apart for the body.
