Dr. Scott Sanderson and his team can help with medical and cosmetic skin and body concerns at Thrive Med Spa and Wellness of Honolulu, Hawaii. This includes helping those who are looking to treat spider veins. Let’s take a closer look at the treatments available at our office to help patients reduce or eliminate spider veins once and for all!

What spider vein treatments are available?

We are the first practice in Hawaii to offer the quickest, safest, most effective, and least painful way to eradicate spider veins from your face. Many people do not know how easy it is to get rid of facial spider veins, so they simply live with them or try to cover them up with makeup.
ThermaVein is a technology developed in Europe that has been used for years and was only recently FDA-approved for use in the United States. ThermaVein utilizes radio frequency to eliminate spider veins from your face more effectively and less painfully than both laser and IPL.
ThermaVein can even be used to treat the spider veins at the base of the nostril. In most patients, only a single treatment is required.
ThermaVein works by compressing the tiny veins so the walls of each side are touching. Then, we apply radio frequency for 0.2 seconds to make the walls stick together and eliminate the vein.


More than half of all patients see improvement in two to three days. Results last four months, and 97 percent of patients say they would do it again.

For veins on the legs, we may use a combination of ThermaVein and a chemical solution or sclerosant. The sclerosant is injected into veins up to 3 mm and causes damage to the vessel walls, causing them to collapse. Depending on the extent of the vessels, multiple treatments may be required to treat leg veins completely.

Skinceuticals is a complete line of medical-grade skin care products with a proven record of achieving excellent results.
