Diathermy for Men and Women: Red vein removal by means of electrolysis


Diathermy is an advanced technique that uses the heat to coagulate the capillaries beneath the skin surface. This method heats the small capillaries via a handheld unit which causes the tiny vessels to break down and be absorbed by the body. This absorption lessens the capillaries visible from the skin’s surface and therefore reduces the reddish/purple appearance of the skin.


The procedure is non-surgical and has little, if no pain associated with it. The procedures can be safely conducted on the face, hands, arms and décolletage


Safety and Sterility –Electrolysis technicians are formally trained and educated in this practice. Sterile disposable needles are used during the procedure.

Minimal Discomfort – Patients may experience a tolerable sensation during electrolysis. The whole procedure may take less than 15 minutes per session.  The treated area may develop sensitivity and fine crusting which disappears after a few days to a couple of weeks. Your Therapist will recommend an appropriate product  to be applied after the procedure to facilitate skin healing.

Suitable skin conditions

Electrolysis for vein removal is suitable for patients with small areas to treat. This procedure is more suitable for people with light skin compared to those with dark skin because of the risk of hyper-pigmentation or skin discoloration.   For removal of capillaries around nose and cheek areas consultation would be highly recommended. Follow up visits may be necessary.

Broken capillaries, or blood vessels, can be caused by a number of different reasons, some which may be preventable. The most common cause is damage to the skin from sun exposure and excess dilation from a source of inflammation or irritation such as rosacea acne. Too vigorous scrubbing of the skin can aggravate already sensitive areas, increasing the development of broken capillaries.

Additionally, other factors may come into play such as age, genetics, hormones, use of birth control pills and conditions that make the facial blood vessels excessively dilate as in alcoholism.
