VEIN REMOVAL– FORIMI

Treating spider veins is similartodental care in that there is an ongoing effort required to keep looking good! Radiofrequency energy is used for the vein removal to heat up and damage the walls of the veins. RF energy travels through a thin tube (a fine needle like object) which gets introduced into a small incision in the vein this can be painful so local anaesthetics are used to numb the area. The after-effects are minimal and most clients can immediately resume their daily lives.

The main issue with spider veins is that with most people susceptible to them, once treated, new veins can form over time which require further treatment. Our patients usually experience an excellent clearance of their spider veins and go on to enjoy many years of great-looking legs, however some patients are less fortunate. This is simply due either to their genetics, to prolonged use of the oral contraceptive pill or specific life events such as pregnancy.
