How does it compare to sclerotherapy in terms of efficacy and safety?
The Veinwave has a lower risk of all the major side effects of sclerothreapy. NO risk of skin breakdown , no risk of bruising or matting . no or nearly no risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
However the Veinwave can only be effectively used on smallest veins, the tiny red veins on the very surface of the skin. Sclerotherapy can be done on veins of all sizes.
