Veinwave Treatment

Veinwave Treatment

Veinwave is a revolutionary new procedure for the treatment of spider veins anywhere they may occur on the body. Using microwave energy via a tiny needle, Veinwave is safely able to target locations like the knees and face that are either too bony or too sensitive to be treated with traditional techniques like sclerotherapy. Thermogcoagulation is used to heat and seal shut veins immediately, without the use of lasers that can burn or scar the skin.

Veinwave is ideally suited to treat spider veins wherever they may occur, even in delicate areas where other treatments may not be suitable. Areas that can be treated include:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Ankles
  • Knees
  • Face

Veinwave offers many advantages over other procedures used to treat spider veins and telangiectasia, including:

  • Less pain
  • No bruising
  • No downtime
  • Ability to treat areas like knees, ankles and face
  • High degree of safety

In addition, the Veinwave procedure is also faster than comparable treatments.

How is the procedure performed?

After cleaning the injection site, your specialist will use a very fine, insulated needle to administer the treatment subepidermally but without piercing the vessel itself. Tiny vessels will be destroyed and dissappear quickly. Veinwave treatment time is approximately 10 to 15 minutes which represents 200 to 250 impulses which will cover both cheeks and the nasal area.

How many sessions will I need?

Depending on the amount of veins you would like to have treated, full results may require two to three treatments, but many people enjoy full results after just one treatment.

When will I begin to see results?

With the Veinwave system, you will see results immediately following your treatment, as tiny veins close and begin to disappear. Results will continue to improve over the next few days following your procedure. 

What will the results be like long-term?

One of the best parts of the Veinwave treatment is that the troublesome veins that are treated will never return: once a vein is treated, it disappears permanently.

How safe is treatment?

There are minimal side effects to using Veinwave. Because it is minimally-invasive, no anesthetic, bandages, recovery time or restrictions are required before or after your Veinwave treatment, so you can begin enjoying your results immediately.

There is no evidence that the treatment can lead to skin disorders, nor an increased risk of cancer. However, treatment is not suitable during pregnancy, or for patients with epilepsy or a pacemaker. Only qualified and fully trained staff may carry out treatment.
