standard-title Veinwave™


veincure-imgVeinwave uses a new method called thermo-coagulation. It can be used on any type of skin, without causing bruising and there is no need for bandages. One treatment session lasts about 15 minutes and can treat up to 30 cm of veins on any part of the body. There are no major side effects, no allergic reactions and no bruising. It can be used on sensitive areas of the body. Some trials have shown that 80% of patients prefer Veinwave to injections.

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on how many spider veins you have and how easy it is to treat your leg. Each session involves nearly 250 pulses so about 30-50cm of spider veins can be treated. Most people can be treated in 3 to 5 sessions.

Will the Veinwave treatment be permanent?

Spider veins can recur or new areas can be affected so it may be necessary to have several sessions over months or years.

Are there any problems with Veinwave?

In one study of over 800 treatment sessions there have been no reports of complications from Veinwave. If you are allergic to Nickel then please tell the person giving you the Veinwave treatment. The main problem appears to be failure of the treatment to remove all spider veins. It is for this reason that repeat treatments may be necessary. The results are obvious in most patients after 6 weeks but for some people, it can take longer for the treatment to work.

Does Veinwave work for all spider veins?

Veinwave is effective on small blue veins on the legs and the fine red veins on the face. It does not always work on very fine red veins on the legs that are matted.

Can I see how it has worked for others?

Dr Mountcastle keeps a photographic record of Veinwave treatment and he would be happy to show you the results of treatment.
