Facial Thread Vein & Skin Blemish Removal


Red Thread Veins, Skin Tags, Milia and sebacous cysts are just a few of the types of Skin blemishes can be treated with advanced electrolysis using a method of cautery.  A topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area to reduce sensitivity.

The results are instant and accurate, please allow for healing of 2 - 6 wks depending on your healing capabilities.

It’s a relatively simple procedure that often only requires the one treatment.  A finely tipped electrical device Thermolysis (electrocautery / Advanced Electrolysis) is applied to each spot.  However, spider nivae & blood spots may need more than one attempt due to the complicated collection of vessels feeding the area.


A fine tipped probe is 'dotted' along the Thread Vein cauterising the vessel as the heat is discharged.  The vessel vanishes immediately.


The area is immediately pink/red for an hour or so.  The skin will then return to normal colour.  You will have slight raised 'fluffy' skin where the vein was treated.  Over the next 24 hours very minute pin prick scabs will appear this can often look like a fine scratch.  

The fine dot scabs will disappear 5 - 10 days depending on your healing.


Although the vessel has been treated a fine pink line may be visible after scabs have gone.  This is the colour of new skin and may take 6 weeks to become same colour as your skin tone.


24 hours after treatment you can apply make up.  Be cautious when applying & removing not to removes scabs as healing is taking place. Premature removal of scabs may cause scarring.

Aftercare Gel/Cream suggestions

  • Witch Hazel Gel / Aloe Gel

Once scabs have healed you will have a paler/pinker area of skin where thread vein once was, this will age & become same colour as your skin within time.  Often to the naked eye it will not be visible where treatment has taken place.

However, allow a full 6 weeks to see healed results - initially newly healed skin can be confused for pink Thread Veins.
