What You Need to Know about Veinwave

Written By Tony Carabasi III, MD, FACS
Varicose Veins

The vein treatment that took Europe by storm has proven itself equally popular in the U.S. Veinwave, available at Center for Vein Restoration, is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses thermocoagulation to eliminate small superficial veins. The procedure involves little discomfort, no downtime and can be used on nearly any area of the body. However, it’s most impressive use is on the face and the tiny facial veins, particularly around the nose and cheeks that make for a perpetual “red or ruddy facial” appearance. There are a number of reasons why Veinwave is becoming one of the top requested treatments at Center for Vein Restoration.

Veinwave uses a very fine insulated needle to deliver electro-thermal energy to the vein without actually puncturing the vein itself. Each vein can be individually targeted without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. There is no need for any type of anesthesia and most patients report little if any discomfort during the procedure.

Few Side Effects
Because Veinwave is minimally-invasive, there are few side effects associated with the procedure. Most patients return to regular activities immediately following treatment, without any visible signs they just had a procedure. In some cases, there might be mild redness after a Veinwave treatment, but this typically resolves within a matter of hours.

Treatment for Rosacea
People suffering with the skin condition rosacea know all too well how difficult it is to get the embarrassing visible symptoms of the condition under control. Veinwave can effectively eliminate the veins that often appear on the faces of rosacea patients to produce a clearer complexion. The device has been widely used in Europe for this purpose and some physicians in the U.S. will use Veinwave as a successful rosacea treatment as well.

Effective on Any Skin Color
Unlike some laser treatments, Veinwave is an effective procedure for any skin color. The device has even been used successfully on tanned skin. However, each case needs to be evaluated carefully by Dr. Carabasi at Advance Vein & Vascular Center to determine whether the individual is a good candidate for the procedure.

Fast Procedure, Fast Results
Most Veinwave treatments take less than 30 minutes to perform, depending on the number of vessels to be addressed. Patients are able to return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Results are typically seen right away and will continue to improve in the days following treatment. Some patients may require more than one treatment session to achieve full desired results.

Veinwave is a revolutionary way to eliminate unsightly superficial veins from the face, legs or any other area of the body. The procedure is quick, relatively comfortable and there is no downtime afterward. To learn more about this treatment, contact us at Center for Vein Restoration today.
