The Newest and Most Promising Treatment for Spider Veins
An exciting new technology which was developed in Europe has just become available in the USA – Veinwave! The Vein & Vascular Institute is excited to be able to offer the revolutionary Veinwave for the treatment of small spider veins and telangiectasia. As seen on "The Doctors", Veinwave is the new FDA approved procedure for immediate results with minimal side effects. The Vein & Vascular Institute is one of the first practices in the tristate area to offer Veinwave treatments.
Veinwave utilizes radiofrequency energy, (the latest rage in medical devices), creating heat similar to laser therapy without its adverse effects on the skin. The desktop device delivers this energy through a pencil like holder device. The veins are traced and there is thermo-coagulation of the spider veins. The vein walls stick together and collapse. The effect of treatment is ‘instant’ – you see the veins disappearing immediately.
The sensation to most is similar to a very fine pin prick, others relate it to a minor sting which does not linger - often it depends upon the location of the treatment. Either way, any discomfort is said to be incomparable to the pain of some laser based treatments and is undoubtedly more effective.
- No compression stockings needed post treatment
- No hiding from the sun
- No hyper or hypopigmentation
- No downtime
In a few days after treatment, very small micro-crusts can develop which look like a cat scratch. These can appear where Veinwave has been applied. This is normal and no special care is needed. These will disappear on their own.
The Veinwave is excellent for treating those stubborn facial vessels or for those small threadlike spider veins on the legs, ankles and feet. The Veinwave can be used on men and women of all skin types. Each treatment takes about 15-20 minutes, less time than a manicure. One could potentially do it during ones lunchtime and be back to work, minus the spider veins.
No more waiting till after the summer to remove those unsightly veins. So what are you waiting for. Schedule your appointment today!
