Thread veins are tiny veins that appear most commonly on the cheeks, nose and legs. Small thread veins are red, but larger ones look purplish. They have many names, including: spider veins, broken veins (not an accurate name, because they are not actually broken) and capillary veins.


Normally, the tiny veins in the skin are invisible, but in some people they expand and show through the skin. One cause of this is too much exposure to the sun over the years. Another is pregnancy or oestrogen treatment. They may also be inherited. Thread veins can sometimes be a sign of rosacea, a skin condition, or can result from overuse of steroid creams. Thread veins are more obvious after mid-life, when the skin becomes thinner and loses some of its collagen.

myFACE uses V-beauty technology. This treatment utilises the principle of "Thermo-Coagulation" which is based on a high frequency wave - a microwave - heating up the thread vein without affecting the outer layers of the skin. The machine selectively heats the thread vein, destroying it and allowing the body to re-absorb it over a period of time. 


V-Beauty treats Red Spot, Rosacea and most facial red veins including those intra-nasal veins which have been previously untreatable. The sterile, single use needle is coated with an invisible insulating sheath, which protects the skin enabling a targeted treatment without the risk of any significant pain or long term effects. This can also be performed at the same time as other facial aesthetics treatments.
