Veinwave for Spider Veins
The exclusive method is safe, effective and relatively painless for spider vein treatment. Spider veins are cosmetically unsightly. They are too fine to be treated like varicose veins, but the thermo-coagulation of Veinwave™ is a complete solution and totally safe.
Different types of veins will require different techniques, but for straight forward linear veins, the treatment is applied subepidermally along its length. This is minimally invasive, breaching only the top layers of skin, and should not pierce the vessel. The nickel needles are insulated with a micro sheath to avoid causing advert trauma to the surrounding tissue.
The effect of the treatment can be instant - you see the veins disappearing immediately. Some patients leave the treatment without any real visible sign on the skin, other than the lack of veins, and some with more sensitive skin may suffer minor reddening which should disappear within a few days, if not hours. For most patients, the sensation is similar to a warm pin prick, while others relate it to a minor sting, which does not linger.
You can resume everyday activities immediately after the treatment. After a few days very small micro-crusts like the marks from a cat scratch can appear where Veinwave™ has been applied. This is normal and no special care is needed. These will disappear on their own. Once the small marks disappear, your practitioner will best be able to see if any small veins remain.
