ThermaVein® is a procedure designed to eliminate red veins, thread veins, red spots, spider veins and rosacea. River Aesthetics can achieve safe, long-term removal of facial veins with immediate results using this quick and relatively painless technique.


Thread veins can be caused by ageing, hormonal changes, sun damage, lifestyle and can even be heredity. There are a number of methods that can be used to treat facial thread veins, including laser, IPL and epilation. However, some of these techniques can have significant drawbacks such as risk of pigmentation and can also require multiple treatments.

By harnessing the power of heat energy caused by high frequency currents producing a thermal pulse, the ThermaVein® uses a process known as thermocoagulation which seals the thread vein walls, causing them to instantly and permanently disappear. Equipped with a polarisation light system your practitioner will introduce a fine needle covered with an insulating sheath, which protects the skin, over the vein enabling a targeted action and delivering the treatment with precision.

Thermavein® is an exceptionally safe treatment that can be carried out on any skin type with instant results. The treatment is suitable for use on the face with the nose, chin and cheek being the most commonly requested areas. To find out if Thermavein® is suitable for you, book your consultation at River Aesthetics today.
