VeinWave™ is an ideal treatment for eliminating spider veins and tangled, thread-like veins on the body that are too fine for sclerotherapy or areas that cannot be treated with sclerotherapy, such as the face. A minimally invasive treatment, VeinWave has become popular because it’s a quick, effective, and relatively painless aesthetic treatment with little to no risk of bruising, scarring, or pigmentation.
At Arkansas Vein Clinic and Skin Care, we are excited to include VeinWave in our selection of revitalizing aesthetic treatments because it is one of the most effective options for removing small, red veins on the face, a condition that can be quite challenging to treat.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is VeinWave performed?
A very fine, insulated needle will be pressed gently into the skin above the problem veins, delivering heat to close them immediately. The vessels will then be slowly absorbed by the body over the next few weeks, revealing clearer skin.
When can I see results?
VeinWave offers immediate gratification because it can eliminate problem veins on contact. You may experience some redness and mild swelling for up to three days following your procedure. For a few weeks, you may notice pinpoint dots over the area of vessels treated, which will gradually fade. The full result can be seen at six weeks, though some results may be seen immediately.
Is there any pain?
Because VeinWave uses such a fine needle, it produces very minimal discomfort, if any. You may feel a pin-prick or a rubber-band-snap sensation for a moment as energy from the needle is delivered into your skin.
Are there any side effects or downtime?
VeinWave is well tolerated and involves no downtime or side effects. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately following treatment, although it is best to avoid hot baths or sun exposure for a week. You may experience some redness and mild swelling at the treatment site, which quickly dissipates over the next few days. Intense exercise should be avoided for one to two days after treatment, as it may exacerbate redness and swelling.
How do I know if VeinWave is right for me?
This 15-minute procedure is an efficient and effective solution for spider and thread-like veins in delicate areas of the body that are not well suited for lasers and other types of vein treatments. If you suffer from a more intense vein condition, such as varicose veins, we offer a variety of other effective treatments.
