About Veinwave

The recent FDA approval of Veinwave means that patients with unsightly spider veins and telangiectasia (small thread veins) are able to experience the wonderful results that people in the UK have been enjoying for years. This revolutionary technique has been perfected by vascular surgeons for the treatment of these troublesome veins and is a great improvement from traditional treatments like sclerotherapy and laser treatment.

Veinwave uses a thermocoagulation, or a high frequency energy to heat the veins, causing them to disappear instantly. A one-time use, thin, insulated needle is used to deliver these waves. The ultra-fine needle allows for the extremely accurate application of the treatment, protecting the skin and tissue, for help in preventing ugly scarring. Veinwave is effective in treating areas such as the ankle or knees, that cannot be treated through alternative methods. Patients are able to see results immediately. While Veinwave does not cause bruising, patients may experience some redness or small marks that look like scratches that will disappear within a few days.

The patient will have an initial consultation to determine the most effective treatment regimen. In some areas, clinics will charge $50 for this visit. Then, the course of treatments is delivered through a series of 3 to 5, fifteen minute sessions where 40-50 cm of veins can be treated. Veinwave is an excellent alternative to sclerotherapy or laser treatments that may cause permanent scarring through skin pigmentation. There are no risks of allergic reactions like those associated with the injected solution in sclerotherapy and there is no recovery period. Unlike with other treatments, the patient experiences minimal pain and does not require bandages, so they are able to resume normal activity immediately following treatment.

The cost of Veinwave will vary by your location and facility, but can cost from $400 to $800.
