Spider Veins on the Face

Thread veins on the face are a different matter to those on the legs. They do not require scanning and are best treated by thermocoagulation (AKA Veinwave™).

What is the best treatment for thread veins on the face?

Thermocoagulation uses a microscopic needle to penetrate the skin just over the thread vein, administering heat to close it off. You will feel a slight pricking sensation as the needle goes in and as the energy is delivered. Several treatment sessions may be required; after each, the treated veins disappear instantly and you can go back to normal activities without restrictions.

Microsclerotherapy should not be used to treat facial thread veins.

You can see a demonstration of thermocoagulation (Veinwave™) in action in the video below. Please note, the Veinlite video is a means of visualising the tiny veins whilst injecting them with Microsclerotherapy. It is not a treatment in itself.


We currently only offer Thermocoagulation treatment in our Stoke-on-Trent clinic.
