TAHQ - The Aesthetics HQ - Capillary / Vein Removal

capillary vein removal


At TAHQ we perform spider/thread vein removal on the legs with a procedure known as sclerotherapy.
This involves tiny injections into the veins which cause the veins to collapse and stick together, preventing further blood through the veins.
The veins scar closed.
1-4 sessions are required on average.
These are spaced at 6 weekly intervals.
The cost is R2100/session, and the treatment takes 1 hour to perform.
Elastic compression stockings must be worn after the treatment for a minimum of 1 week.
Larger veins may require 2 weeks after each session in compression stockings.
This treatment is suitable for veins/broken capillaries of 3mm or less in diameter.


We offer IPL for removal of broken capillaries/vascular lesions on the face.
6-8 treatments are required on average, and the cost is R500/session.
Treatments are spaced at 3-4 weekly intervals.
Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL) uses a spectrum of light shined onto the skin to treat a variety of skin and vein issues. IPL delivers a concentrated pulse of light which heats and damages blood vessel walls, shrinking the targeted veins and making them disappear. Because the light is concentrated and focused, IPL treatment does not damage surrounding tissue.
IPL is used for photo rejuvenation where longer wavelengths of light are applied to the skin in order to destroy old collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen, leading to firmer and softer skin. IPL is also used to treat spider veins, reticular veins, age spots, and non-cancerous skin lesions.
Clinical results for the use of IPL vary with skin type. Individuals with fair to light brown skin experience the best results from IPL. Individuals who tan easily have varied results, and IPL is not recommended for some individuals with dark skin.

The result in improved skin tone and texture and well as reduced lines and wrinkles.
