What is the difference between the laser and the TC3000 treatments for thread veins removal and what are the implications of each?
Both therapies are used at Renew Skin & Health Clinic due to the fact that each of them has other uses that the other may not have or may not excel in. If we are talking about advantages and disadvantages, laser therapy may have side effects such as burns, depigmentation or pigmentation. Moreover, prior and following the laser therapy you will have to avoid sun and extreme temperature exposure, and also wear compressing stockings for a few days. Unlike the laser therapy, the TC3000 which uses thermocoagulation does not have any side effects, no adjacent tissue is damaged, there is no risk of pigmentation or depigmentation, the treatment has no seasonal limitation and no elastic stockings are required. The difference is the fact that the TC3000 can treat thread veins or spider veins up to 1 mm in size, whereas the laser, Nd:Yag and IPL, can also treat thread veins larger than that.
That is why, if your veins are smaller than 1 mm there are definitely more advantages offered to you by the TC3000 thermocoagulation therapy but if they are bigger, you can take into consideration the Nd:Yag or IPL laser therapy available at Renew Skin & Health Clinic or even other kind of treatments such as sclerotherapy. Our GP will recommend the treatment that best suits your thread vein condition during the consultation you have to undergo prior to the treatment. People in Warwick are most welcome at Renew Skin & Health Clinic to benefit from our professional, safe, quick and highly effective thread veins removal treatments.
