After Care for Red Vein Treatment

First and foremost, please ensure that you keep the treated area meticulously clean and dry for the first 48 hours post treatment.

Be patient

It will take approximately 3-8 weeks after treatment to see the results. There will be redness immediately after the treatment; to aid healing and prevent infection we recommend you regularly apply our Sterex Aloe Vera Gel directly onto the treated area, this will soothe, seal and aid healing. Our Aloe Vera Gel can be purchased at the clinic.

Points to remember for 48 hours* post treatment

  • If possible, rest after treatment without stimulation for thirty minutes.
  • Avoid make-up (even unperfumed). Cleanse twice a day with clean cotton wool pads soaked in Sterex Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera Gel. Re-apply Aloe Vera Gel  regularly for the next 7 days.
  • Avoid hot baths, showers, and any heat treatments.
  • To avoid infection, prevent hair from falling on to the treated area (ie, keep long hair tied back).

Points to remember for the first week post treatment

  • Avoid abrasions of any kind from scrubbing, exfoliating creams or even rough towels.
  • Avoid sunbathing, sun beds, solarium spas, swimming or sporting activity.
  • Avoid saunas, steam or other heat treatments of any kind. Keep the area as dry as possible, avoiding infection.
  • It is very important that you do not attempt to lift any fine scabs (which may or may not have appeared post treatment) prematurely as this increase the risk of scarring, pitting or unsuccessful treatment.

To help prevent the appearance of further Red Veins

Cleanse tone and moisturise morning and night with Gatineau Sensitive Cream Cleanser and Gentle Sensitive Toner then apply Gatineau Anti-redness cream and Gatineau Protective Cream to the treated area 48 hours post treatment and as an on-going a.m. and p.m. homecare routine. Also, apply our SPF 30 (a light non greasy, non whitening anti UVA and UVB sun protector) to the skin during the day to give added protection all year round, preventing sun damage or exacerbation of the sensitised area. Drink 1½-2 litres of water a day, and when drinking alcohol always drink plenty of water, preventing further capillary dilation and dehydration to a high coloured sensitised skin type.

* NB: For most people, 48 hours is plenty of time to leave after your treatment. However, everyone is different, so please do not be alarmed you need a bit longer. If in doubt, please contact us.

We recommend the use of these products for homecare and in-between treatments, they can all be purchased at the clinic.

For best results, if you have previously been a smoker, sun worshipper or a client who has large vascular veins on the surface of the skin, we would always recommend several Red Vein treatments over consecutive months.

All clients new to Red Vein treatments at the clinic must have a one-off ½hr consultation of £55 before commencement of treatment. This applies to all clients, regardless of them previously having had Electrolysis or Red Vein treatments at a previous practice.
