About this treatment
Veinwave is a revolutionary treatment to remove unwanted thread, spider or broken veins on the face or legs. It uses a technique called thermo-coagulation to destroy the veins or veins. A high frequency current is passed from the Veinwave machine into the vein without damaging any surrounding tissue. This current then turns to energy and causes the vein to collapse. The dead vein is naturally disposed of by the body, leaving a small red mark that disappears soon after treatment.
This treatment option offers fast treatment times with minimal or no downtime and instantly visible results. It can also be used to treat skin tags and other small lesions on the face, arms and legs. More than one treatment may be required to destroy each vein.
