Short-wave diathermy is an effective treatment for visible facial thread veins known as telangiectasia. These tiny veins, often called “spider veins” or “thread veins,” can be found on the face, legs, and chest. They become damaged and unsightly due to long-term unprotected sun exposure, the natural ageing process, rosacea, and smoking. Additionally, they can be hereditary or associated with conditions like liver disease. Occupation and lifestyle, mainly outdoor spending, can also contribute to their development. When the delicate elastin fibres in the vein walls are damaged, the veins become dilated and visible.
Short wave diathermy is a treatment method that involves passing an electric current through a small probe to coagulate tiny veins. This process is facilitated by the heat generated by the electric current, like the principles of electrolysis. A specifically designed insulated probe protects the surrounding skin from the heat produced during short wave diathermy to ensure safety.

The treatment involves using a small probe, about as thin as a strand of hair, to cauterize and seal veins using an electric current. Once sealed, the body breaks down the vein, causing it to fade away over time.

The number of treatments needed depends on the number and response of the veins. While short-wave diathermy treatment is not painful, it can be slightly uncomfortable, so many clients prefer to apply a local anaesthetic cream beforehand.

Short-wave diathermy also treats conditions like small skin tags, milia, and blood spots.

The skin is carefully cleaned before the treatment is performed. Depending on the number of facial veins present, many of the veins can be treated in a single session. However, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary if the veins are extensive.

During the treatment, a magnifying lamp is utilized to visualize the tiny veins, ensuring accurate placement of the probe.
