Golden standard in closing vasculature, telangiectasia
Veinwave ™ is a revolutionary, advanced method of treatment for dilated blood vessels located anywhere on the body, but is usually used to eliminate telangiectasia and facial redness. The biggest advantage of this treatment is that veinwave can easily eliminate even the smallest blood vessels that can not be removed using typical techniques, such as sclerotherapy or laser therapy. The procedure is fast and the discomfort experienced is relatively small. Veinwave ™ immediately, permanently and safely removes the dilated blood vessels on the face. Veinwave ™ was based on the use of high frequency radio waves. This method is very effective and safe.
Veinwave ™ has been used for over 10 years and has been carried out with more than 50,000 procedures in 31 countries. The device has become the gold standard in closing dilated capillaries. This technology has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of telangiectasia.
Veinwave ™ technology
Veinwave is the fruit of many years of work by the British doctor, vascular surgeon Brian Newman. The device uses a thermo-coagulation process, thanks to which a controlled dose of high-frequency energy (RF) is delivered, leading to the heating of blood vessels. Energy is delivered through a thin needle, without the risk of tissue damage. RF energy is delivered to damaged and weak blood vessels, which results in their closure and immediate disappearance.The treatment is carried out on the face, arms, legs and other parts of the body.
The principle of Veinwave operation?
Veinwave uses single-pole thermocouple -UTC (Unipolar Thermo-Coagulation). Thanks to controlled thermal energy, the dilated blood vessels are closed. Through a nickel-plated or gold needle in just 0.2 seconds energy is transferred. The tip of the needle is inserted above the vessel, under the epidermis, causing its closure, without damage to the surrounding tissues. Thanks to this, the risk of scars and discoloration is minimized. It is the only way to treat vascular lesions using the thermo-coagulation properties, which has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and approved for use. Treatment with thermo-coagulation takes about 15 minutes. During this time, about 80-100 cm of blood vessels can be eliminated. After the procedure, a slight swelling is noticeable, which disappears within a few hours. The effect of the treatment is visible immediately. A valuable advantage is the minimized discomfort that accompanies other techniques. It is used regardless of skin type. The treatment has no side effects, the appearance of bruises or allergic reactions. It can be used on sensitive areas of the body.

Visualization system (Veinwave Polarised Light System)
The lamp with integrated polarized light using the visualization system allows the visibility of the blood vessels located under the epidermis. Thanks to this system, working with the Veinwave device is even more effective. The accuracy, the precision with which the procedure is performed is increased.
