Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery Center offers the state-of-the-art VeinWave™ therapy for removal of small, unwanted thread veins and vascular blemishes on your legs and face. This revolutionary procedure was developed in Britain and has received FDA approval for use in the United States.
The VeinWave™ system uses thermocoagulation to remove thread veins and vascular blemishes quickly and permanently. This process utilizes very high frequency microwave energy to “heat” the visible vein, causing it to be reabsorbed into the body. Veins less than 4 mm on the legs, ankles, face, and neck respond very well to treatment.
VeinWave™ uses an ultrafine insulated needle through which very high frequency microwave energy is delivered into the blood vessels, causing heating and shrinkage of the veins without damaging the surrounding skin. After treatment, the targeted blood vessels fade away over the course of a few weeks.
VeinWave™ treatments generally last 20–30 minutes depending on the number of veins being treated.
There is little or no downtime associated with the VeinWave™ process, so you can resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Most patients experience slight redness on the skin for a week to ten days after treatment.
