Thread Vein Removal  with Lumecca or Short Wave Diathermy 

Thread Veins

Facial veins and rosacea related redness can be greatly improved with these 2 fast, effective and non-invasive treatments.

LUMECCA is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology which uses advanced light technology to treat unsightly blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin. Very short, precisely targeted pulses of light are sent into the skin, heating the identified blood vessel to a point where it is destroyed. The problem vessels shrink over the following weeks and are re-absorbed by the body.

Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light offers fast treatment times and patients experience just a very moderate sensation during the light application. There is no damage to surface skin and treatments typically take just 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of lesion. With each treatment the number of visible vessels decline, leading to complete removal in a course of  1-3 treatments.

At Orchard Cosmetic, the Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light equipment is the most effective treatment available for both thread veins and sunspots. Invasix are the company who supply Lumecca and are recognised as being at the forefront of research and technology within both beauty and medical fields.


The investment required by Orchard Cosmetic is considerable and this gives the specialists a superior equipment base and variable treatments to suit the varied needs of patients. Each Intense Pulsed Light treatment is tailored to suit individual problems. This is not always possible for practitioners who offer Laser only, or less advanced Intense Pulsed Light systems.

SHORT WAVE DIATHERMY is an extremely effective method of eradicating spider or thread veins with a 95% success rate. This treatment is performed under a local anaesthetic and involves passing heat energy via a tiny needle causing the veins to coagulate. At the clinic, both Lumecca IPL and Diathermy as combination treatment may be used to achieve the best result. ​
