Using Advanced Electrolysis to Treat Spider Veins
An extremely thin sterilised disposable needle is used connected to a special electrolysis unit which produces a tiny electrical charge. The electrical charge will be passed into the needle. The needle is inserted into the spider veins, one by one, and the electrical current is applied.
There is a small amount of discomfort during this procedure but it is not unbearable. The electrical current produces enough heat to cauterise or seal the veins, which prevents any more blood flow through them. Once sealed, the vein is effectively useless, and may be simply reabsorbed, or removed, by the body.
The Spider Veins treatment sessions typically last for up to one hour, and it is likely that more than one session will be required to ensure complete removal with the first session taking the longest. The removal is permanent and the treated veins will not recur once they have been destroyed by the electrolysis.
However, treatment will not prevent new spider veins from forming anywhere else, as it is a localised treatment specific to spider veins that have already formed. Following treatment, there may be some redness and scabbing but this should disappear within ten days.
The treatment that is best for you will depend on many factors including skin type and severity of the condition.
