VeinWave Makes Waves in the Vein Industry
VeinWave is a revolutionary procedure taking the vein industry by storm today. The device uses thermocoagulation (microwave energy) to eliminate small, superficial spider veins that appear on the face or other areas of the body. Patients can come in for a VeinWave treatment on their lunch hour and head back to work or other activities as soon as the procedure is complete.
How is it Done?
VeinWave is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require any type of anesthesia. A fine, insulated needle is used to administer the electro-thermal energy without actually puncturing the vessel to be treated. Most patients feel little – if any – discomfort during the procedure.
The electro-thermal energy affects the walls of the diseased vessel, causing the vein to seal closed. The vein is eventually reabsorbed by the body and blood is rerouted through healthy veins nearby. The procedure usually takes just a few minutes to complete, and preliminary results can be seen once the treatment is complete.
What Can it Treat?
VeinWave is a diverse treatment that can be used on a variety of areas of the body, but is particularly effective in addressing spider veins and telangiectasia on the face. The procedure can be used for visible veins on the nose and cheeks and can be used as a treatment for symptoms of rosacea. In fact, the large majority of VeinWave procedures performed at Center for Vein Restoration are focused on facial veins, with excellent results for patients.
