Case Study: Client story #11


I’ve always had red thread veins around my nose and on my cheeks but they had never bothered me until a friend kindly pointed them out and told me to sort them!


I had 2 diathermy treatments.  Firstly some numbing cream was applied and then a tiny needle was placed in each vein in order for an electronic current to be passed through it.  There was a little discomfort but that was short lived.  The treated veins went darker in colour and there were a couple of small scabs but that was to be expected.  The veins began to fade after 2-3 weeks and I had a second session after that.


I was advised I may need between 1-3 treatments but I was happy after 2. This was a simple fix.
