Veinwave is a treatment for surface veins.? It appears to be safe and works well.? But it does not treat underlying vein disease that is often present.? Endovenous ablation addresses the larger vein disease that a treatment like Veinwave does not.

Laser ablation of veins is a procedure not a product. It does not have to be unique.

VeinWave is an entirely different treatment than laser ablation. Ablation is done for patients with varicose veins, and is used to seal closed the underlying main vein that is causing the problem that leads to the superficial varicose veins. VeinWave is a new treatment, specifically for spider veins only, and is limited to just the smallest, fine, tiny veins that cannot be treated by injection sclerotherapy. It uses tiny pulse of radiowaves to treat these tiny little vessels, but cannot be used on larger veins.

Veinwave utilizes radiofrequency to treat very small skin spider veins on the skin. Endovenous ablation uses either laser or radiofrequency to treat the leaking saphenous or accessory veins under the skin.
