How To Remove Spider Veins on My Face

spider veins on the face

There is an inexpensive, safe and effective treatment for the removal of tiny spider veins on the cheeks, chin and nose which gives fast results. It is called SHORT WAVE DIATHERMY.

Here’s how it works. Before any treatment is started, our Senior HCA Natalie Pike will take a full medical history and in collaboration with you, she will assess which areas are of particular concern to you.

results of facial spider vein treatmentShort Wave Diathermy is relatively straightforward and it uses a controlled medical electrical current to remove fine blue or red veins on your face. First, Natalie will apply a local anaesthetic cream and after 30 minutes, she will wipe it off and clean the skin with antiseptic. With the aid of magnification and good illumination, Natalie uses a fine, sterile, single-use needle to apply a very precise medical electrical current to the blood vessel. The electrical current cauterises and closes the blood vessel and over the course of a few weeks it disperses. Once your treatment is complete Natalie applies a soothing gel to the area.

In general, the results are excellent.
