Undergoing a thread vein Removal procedure can put the fun back into holidays,
One of the most common treatments to remove thread veins on the legs and thighs is sclerotherapy. This is a non-surgical procedure developed almost 150 years ago to eradicate unwanted, non-functional veins. The procedure involves the injection of a sterile sclerosing solution into the vein. The purpose of the solution is to produce irreversible and irreparable alteration to the vein. If this is achieved, the vein will ultimately be absorbed.
Lasers like the Nd:Yag can also be used to remove unsightly veins. Because the laser is set to a controlled wavelength, it only targets the blood vessels and not the surrounding skin. This enables the walls of the veins to collapse and be harmlessly absorbed by the body without causing any damage to the skin or surrounding tissue.
Veinwave is another treatment, which is used to treat facial thread veins, a small fine needle is inserted near or directly into the vessel and microwave energy is transmitted to close the vessel down.
