Diathermy for Milia (hard white milk spots), Red Blemishes, Thread Veins at dermalclinic®, Edinburgh.
An advanced treatment technique, known as diathermy, can lessen and eliminate spider veins and thread veins on the face and body. Spider veins are visible and individual surface capillaries and diathermy uses heat current to treat the capillaries in the epidermal layers. Spider and thread veins can be caused by many things such as injury, trauma, sun exposure, rosacea or simply a fine skin texture.
Milia are often called milk spots and are keratin-filled cysts that appear under the epidermis. They can affect people at any age and usually found around the eyes and nose. They are very frequently confused with whiteheads and can be effectively treated with diathermy.
