Veinwave Explained

Veinwave Explained

What is Veinwave?

Veinwave eliminates veins via a process known as thermo-coagulation. Of all the available treatments for thread veins, Veinwave is the most recent and possibly most remarkable.

Like more conventional therapies like laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and electrolysis, this form of treatment relies on heating up capillaries and veins responsible for the formation of thread veins, causing them to close up and become re-absorbed by the body and leaving your skin web free.

What can Veinwave offer me?

Treatments last only 10 or 15 minutes with immediate results, unlike other therapies which can take up to 8 weeks for the skin to heal and the full effects to be observed.

Veinwave is a relatively painless procedure that can be applied to all areas of the body, including difficult to treat areas, such as the knee and ankle. There is no risk of bruising, scarring or pigmentation. No bandages are required, and the patient may resume everyday activity 15 minutes after their treatment session.

The key difference between Veinwave and its contemporaries is the technology used. Rather than focused high energy light or electricity, a microwave is applied by an extremely fine needle, which prevents unnecessary exposure of these microwaves to the surrounding tissue. The technology causes thread veins to collapse and disappear.

Who are good candidates?

Veinwave is often used in conjunction with other therapies. For smaller thread veins Veinwave is used initially, and during follow up appointments a decision is made to follow up with another procedure like sclerotherapy to complete treatment. Larger thread veins and varicose veins will be more effectively treated using sclerotherapy.
