Veinwave Treatments for Thread Veins

Find Clinics offering Thread Vein treatment London & UK »

Of all the available treatments for thread veins, Veinwave is the most recent and possibly most remarkable. Like more conventional therapies like laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and electrolysis, this form of treatment relies on heating up capillaries and veins responsible for the formation of thread veins, causing them to close up and become re-absorbed by the body and leaving your skin web free.

The key difference between Veinwave and its contemporaries is the technology used. Rather than focussed high energy light or electricity, a microwave is applied by an extremely fine needle, which prevents unnecessary exposure of these microwaves to the surrounding tissue. The technology causes thread veins to collapse and disappear.

Why Veinwave rather than other treatments for thread veins?

Laser and IPL treatments both carry a risk of scarring and/or damage to the skin as the light used is applied to the skin itself. Veinwave however, uses an energy which does not affect the epidermis (surface layer of the skin), removing the risk of scarring or cell death.

Treatments last only 10 or 15 minutes with immediate results, unlike other therapies which can take up to 8 weeks for the skin to heal and the full effects to be observed.

Veinwave is in fact often used in conjunction with other therapies. For smaller thread veins Veinwave is used initially, and during follow up appointments a decision is made to follow up with another procedure like sclerotherapy to complete treatment.
