The Veinwave system is medically-acclaimed technology that safely and effectively removes unsightly spider veins from areas of the face, chest, arms, legs and ankles using pulses of high-frequency radio energy.
The energy of the radiofrequency is delivered directly to the spider vein via a tiny nickel needle, which is insulated with a micro sheath so as not to cause trauma to the surrounding tissues and does not pierce the vessel.
The effect of the treatment is ‘instant’ – the veins can be seen disappearing immediately. Some patients leave the treatment without any real visible sign on the skin, other than the lack of veins, and others with sensitive skin may have minor reddening on the treatment area, which should disappear within a few hours or days.
The sensation of the treatment to most is similar to a warm pin prick, others relate it to a minor sting which does not linger and often depends upon the location of the treatment. Either way, any discomfort is said to be incomparable to the pain of some laser based treatments and is undoubtedly more effective.
It is important to discontinue using sunbeds &/or tanning creams to allow the skin to resume to its natural colour before this procedure, to decrease sensitivity to the skin and pigment.
