Diathermy

Red vein treatment

Facial thread veins and skin tags on the body can now be removed with short wave diathermy.

A minute needle is inserted into the blemish (as in thread veins) to disperse the contents and destroy the tissue by thermolysis (heat). A skin tag is removed with the needle and the area will become slightly crusty as the area blackens.

This technique is very effective and is widely used. Sometimes additional treatments are needed.
