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.
Reasons to Choose Dr. Viggiano and His Staff:
Anyone who has taken part in the manufacturer’s training can perform ThermaVein® treatments, but few people have the experience and expertise Dr. Viggiano and his staff offers. Dr. Viggiano is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with over 3 decades of medical and surgical experience. His experience enables him to identify whether your condition is best treated by ThermaVein® or another procedure. Before any treatment, you will meet with Dr. Viggiano to discuss your concerns and choose the best plan for your unique issues. If you choose to have you treatment performed at an outside location, such as an affiliated salon, you will meet with one of Dr. Viggiano’s qualified Registered Nurses who will be performing the procedure.
Reasons to Choose ThermaVein®:
• No skin penetration
• No anesthesia
• No topical numbing cream
• No post-treatment bandages or post-care regimen to follow
• No recovery time, activity restriction or time away from work
The treatment is a simple, precise outpatient procedure. A highly experienced registered nurse will use the ThermaVein® hand piece 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 weren’t even sure the procedure had begun!
Because your spider veins on the face will disappear instantly with each application of the hand piece, you will see immediate improvement, although, there may be redness on the treated area. There’s no downtime or waiting for healing, so you can begin enjoying your results right away. The leg veins tend to take 4-6 weeks to resolve and initially look as if a slight “cat scratch” has occurred in the area. Results range from dramatic improvement to complete elimination of visible veins in the treated area.
