Who Is a Good Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for ThermaVein if you have small, superficial veins (also called spider veins) on areas including:
- Other areas of the face
ThermaVein can also treat sebaceous hyperplasia, a gland disorder that can produce yellowish bumps on the face, as well as milia, the small, usually whitish-colored cysts commonly found around the nose and eyes. If your primary concern is the presence of spider veins on your legs, you may be good candidate for sclerotherapy.

The treatment is a simple, precise outpatient procedure. A highly experienced medical aesthetician will use the ThermaVein handpiece to deliver a very small microwave current to your spider veins in pulses that last only 0.2 seconds. The current penetrates the skin at a depth equal to a grain of sand or a pinhead, causing the vein to disappear immediately.
A treatment usually takes about 15 minutes, depending on the amount of visible veins. Most patients require just a single session and rarely more than 3 sessions. Some patients said they felt something akin to plucking a hair or a pinch, but others say they felt so little that they werenï¿½t even sure the procedure had begun.
Because your spider veins will disappear instantly with each application of the handpiece, you will see immediate improvement. There's no downtime or waiting for healing, so you can begin enjoying your results right away. The leg veins tend to take a few weeks to resolve and initially look as if a slight scratch has occurred in the area. Results range from dramatic improvement to complete elimination of visible veins in the treated area.
The treated veins will likely not return. New veins can appear in other areas, which can also be treated. If treated veins recur or new veins continue to appear, follow-up evaluations after about 2 months and then annually can help you maintain clear skin.
