Hyfrecator Vein Removal
Hyfrecator Vein Removal offers a fast, effective alternative to schlerotherapy for the elimination of ugly spider veins. This electrosurgical technology works on spider veins wherever they appear, whether it’s the face, ears and forehead, or arms, thighs and ankles. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and veins just below the surface become increasingly visible. The Hyfrecator probe (needle) is inserted just under the skin and ‘burns’ the vein to remove it.
- Safe and effective.
- Delivers reliable, permanent vein removal but does not prevent the appearance of new veins, which will have to be treated.
- Works quickly to selectively destroy veins while leaving surface skin untouched.
- Non-surgical and minimally invasive, involving no incisions or risk of scarring.
- Restores treated areas to a smooth, clear, and unblemished look of health and youth.
- Restores patient confidence.
Hyfrecator Vein Removal Treatment Plan
This treatment is administered with the use of a hyfrecator probe. This probe quickly and selectively destroys the vein by delivering an electric current through the tip of the hyfrecator into the skin directly above the spider vein. This treatment is administered without anesthesia; however, sensitive patients may need a topical, local anesthetic to mitigate the slight burning or stinging sensation. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve the desired effect

Frequently Asked Questions
Spider veins (also known as thread veins) are small blood vessels in the dermis layer of the skin that have become enlarged and visible. Generally, the dermis is about 2-3 mm thick, so the deeper-seated the thread vein is in the skin, the less ‘livid’ it looks. However, as we age, our dermis becomes thinner and veins become more apparent. Spider veins are very common, affecting around 80% of male and female adults.
Unless they are painful, spider veins do not have to be removed. However, if they are unsightly and embarrassing, for cosmetic reasons, they can easily be treated to restore self-confidence.
Schlerotherapy involves the injection of a chemical solution directly into the vein. This solution causes the vein to scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is then reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. Alternatively, Hyfrecator Vein Removal relies on the use of a hyfrecator probe, which delivers an electrical current that burns away the vein while leaving surface skin intact.
No, removed veins are permanently eliminated; however, if you are prone to the development of spider veins, new ones will surface. If they make you feel self-conscious, they should be treated in order to keep your skin even-toned and youthful-looking
