ThermaVein is used to treat visible facial veins (known as thread veins) and is also an effective treatment for skin pigmentation on the face. Recommended by Dr Hilary Jones!

Skin pigmentation and broken blood vessels that appear on the face are known as thread veins. They can be the result of exposure to the sun, part of the ageing process, hormones or just simply genetics. Regardless of the reasons, all conditions can be easily treated with ThermaVein.

ThermaVein is an instant, safe and permanent removal treatment to remove red and purple thread veins, spider veins and other skin conditions in a safe and effective way.

It’s a facial treatment which offers consistent results with no known-side effects and a very high safety rating. Its a unique, proven and exclusively available piece of technology and we have it at our Upminster clinic.

ThermaVein is a different approach to alternative vein treatments, such as laser vein removal. While lasers present the possible risk of bruising, scarring and pigmentation (and the possible need for multiple treatments), ThermaVein offers immediate and consistent results with no known side effects.

ThermaVein uses Thermocoagulation – a process that seals off the offensive vein walls – which cause the vein to permanently disappear.

Thermavein is a versatile treatment that can remove multiple skin imperfections that occur on the face and body. It’s a fast and effective treatment that isn’t only for veins on the face, but can also be used to remove skin tags and age spots on any area of the body.

How it Works

A tiny probe, the size of a human hair, is rested above the vein to close it together (Fig.1).

The next step is to deliver a 0.2 second pulse to seal the vein, the process is repeated along the length of the vein until it is permanently closed (Fig.2).

The blood is naturally absorbed into the body and the vein ceases to exist (Fig.3). The whole process takes minutes and most people report no discomfort whatsoever.

The Procedure

The treatment for face veins is a simple and accurate procedure. The Thermocoagulation process is administered to each vein individually using a fine skin probe.

ThermaVein delivers a tiny microwave current which travels 1.5mm into the treatment area. By exposing a pigmented lesion to a short light pulse, the temperature of the skin is raised enough to breakdown the cells. The technique causes the vein to close and then the current causes it to instantly disappear.

This treatment can also be used on thread veins that occur on the body.

It’s an effective treatment for thread vein and spider veins on the legs, chest and can treat anywhere on the body.

A typical treatment should only usually take around 15-20 minutes. The patient will see an immediate improvement in their condition.

Patient Reviews

I’ve been coming to Aesthetics of Essex since it has been open & have had an amazing experience from the start. I’ve had various treatments over the years. Initially, I felt at ease with the first phone call & when I walk in I feel like one of the family due to all the girls at Aesthetics being very friendly and welcoming. I have recommended lots of my friends to Aesthetics of Essex who have also had the same service as I’ve been given.

Gill M - Romford

I had been troubled by ugly thread veins inside my nose for many years and I’d been told laser or IPL treatments were unsuitable, then ThermaVein® was recommended. Immediately after my treatment I looked in the mirror and the veins had totally disappeared.

Marc - ThermaVein Patient.

I have had several treatments, laser thread vein, laser tattoo removal, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and the results are unbelievable. I truly recommend this clinic as it has so many treatments to offer. The staff are so customer focused, the minute you walk through the door you are greeted with such warmth and friendliness. The clinic has a high professional standard so go along and see for yourself.


Thank you to Aesthetics of Essex for giving me back my confidence. If only I can put into words how I feel. I love my mineral make up too.

I look fabulous. Thank you again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a treatment take?
A typical treatment should take no more than 15 minutes. Instantly after treatment you will see a significant improvement in your skin condition if not a total eradication.

How many treatments are required on average?
Many clients can be treated in just one session (depending on the extent of the condition) and it would be unusual for a client to require more than 3 sessions.

Does the treatment cure the condition?
The treatment will remove visible signs of the condition and in many cases prevent it from recurring.
There are a wide range of underlying causes to conditions which may lead to new areas developing, however, a top up treatment will clear the condition.
If there are concerns of recurrence we advise a review 8 weeks after the treatment and a yearly review to stop any new areas developing.

Are ThermaVein treatments painful?
Although unable to classify the treatment as pain-free due to different individuals varying tolerance levels, patients regularly tell us that they hardly feel a thing.
The sensation has been described as a pinching sensation or having a hair plucked. Any sensation felt during treatment will subside as soon as the treatment stops.

Are there any known side effects?
Unlike other treatments (such as Laser or IPL) there are no known side effects and no requirement to avoid sunlight.
There is also no bruising, scarring or similar and there is no downtime (many go back to work or shopping immediately after treatment).
Most clients feel a little pinching sensation which we are informed is easily bared.

Who cannot be treated?
We would strongly advise against having this treatment if you are pregnant, have epilepsy (due to head contact rather than the treatment) or recently applied false tan. Individuals that have recently been on a sunbed or in the sun are suitable for the treatment.
