Using a technique called Diathermy, a low level electrical current is passed superficially through the skin causing the collapse of spider veins.
One session of diathermy for broken capillaries is all that should be needed to treat an area, if subsequent sessions are needed in the same area, this can be done at no cost.
At the time of your spider vein treatment only mild discomfort will be felt. Post treatment, redness and heat will be present, but manageable.
Yes, using diathermy for broken capillaries will cause mild scabbing/flaking in the area, similar to a scratch.
Usually only 1 spider vein treatment is needed, but if there are substantial veins to be removed it may be suggested or required that 2 visits are necessary.
After your first session, if you require an additional treatment, we recommend booking this 4 weeks after your initial treatment.
Spider vein removal costs $199 for a session, which lasts for 30 minutes. Most people will only need one session per area for red vein removal. Contact our Brisbane clinics for more information.
