55% of women between the ages of 20 – 70 years old suffer from spider veins. These unsightly vessels are too fine to be treated in the same way as varicose veins, but the thermo-coagulation technology used by Veinwave is a safe solution.
The procedure uses a sterile, single use, insulated needle which protects the skin whilst targeting the spider veins. It can also be used to treat blood spots and all kinds of spider veins. It is a popular method to treat facial thread veins. Veinwave can be applied to both men and women and any skin complexion.
Treatment would take up to 10 minutes on the face or up to 15 minutes on the legs. Following treatment it is usual to experience redness and inflammation of the skin and a fine micro crust over the vessels treated. This normally takes around a week to heal. The redness normally subsides within 24 hours. A course of several treatments may be required.
All Veinwave treatments are performed by experienced, registered nurses following a consultation to determine suitability.
