Veinwave

Veinwave

Broken veins, spider veins, cherry angiomas, thread veins; just a few of the many vascular conditions that patients come to the Clinic seeking treatment for. One of the treatments available to you at The Skin to Love Clinic is Veinwave which uses a technique known as thermo-coagulation.

This widely-used technique was developed by leading vascular surgeons; the treatment uses an ultra-fine insulated needle to heat the unwanted vessels in the skin. This then destroys the vein and your body gradually breaks it down and removes it. This technique protects the skin and surrounding tissue whilst allowing your practitioner to accurately apply the treatment to the targeted vessels.

Effective on both the face and the body, this treatment was designed to accompany sclerotherapy to treat smaller veins which sclerotherapy cannot. Veinwave is ideal for treating spider veins, symptoms of rosacea, angioma, telangiectasia and thread veins.

Indications that Veinwave may be right for you:

  • You have rosacea and are noticing symptoms such as facial broken veins.
  • You have unwanted veins on your face.
  • You have unwanted, superficial broken veins on your legs and have had any deeper veins treated previously.
  • You have other vein-related concerns such as blood spots (also known as cherry angiomas).

How does my body remove the treated vein after the Veinwave treatment?

Our bodies have scavenger cells called macrophages which breakdown and ingest the treated vessels to safely remove them from your body.

I have background redness and broken facial veins from Rosacea, will Veinwave treat all these symptoms?

In our experience, Veinwave is best to treat individual vessels/veins. There are alternative treatments which can help to reduce general background redness.

I have leg veins; can you treat these with Veinwave?

We can treat the small, broken red veins on your legs. Veinwave is not suitable to treat large, deep (often blue) veins. We strongly suggest that your first action is to have a doppler scan to see if you have any large, deep veins which are ‘feeding’ the smaller veins you can see on the surface of your skin as you sometimes cannot see deep veins; especially if you have a family history of varicose veins. If your scan shows you have varicose veins, you will need to have these treated first otherwise they are likely to continue pumping blood to the small surface vessels.

Treatment Summary

No. of treatments
Dependent on your concern. More than one session may be needed. Some conditions or concerns may require maintenance treatments

Procedure time
Dependent on the size of your treatment area and/or number of lesions you’re having treated. The average session ranges from 10 to 30 minutes. In most cases, we recommend using an anaesthetic cream on the skin for 30 to 60 minutes prior to treatment, which would be applied in-clinic by one of our practitioners to ensure your comfort. It’s worth noting that if a large area requires treatment the patient may require more than one session to cover the entire area

Final results
Dependent on your concerns and how quickly your body removes the treated vein. We would usually review you after a month and, with most patients, expect to see some improvement at this time

Recovery time
Redness and/or mild swelling may be seen in the treatment area post procedure. Micro-scabbing may develop in the treatment site and, in general, can last several days. This is not uncommon and is managed well by patients with the use of a tinted moisturiser

Resume usual activities
We usually recommend avoiding extreme temperatures, such as saunas, and being direct sun light, such as being on a hot holiday, immediately post treatment. We’d also advise avoiding exercise for a few days post facial treatment and up to one week if your legs have been treated; full aftercare will be provided prior to treatment

Discomfort level
Mild with the use of local anaesthetic cream. Patients liken the sensation to warm pin-pricks

Duration of results
Dependant on concern being treated, however many patients report improvement for years post treatment. As the concerns treated by the Veinwave are usually connected to your circulatory system more than one session may be needed due to the continuous pumping of your blood and some conditions or concerns may require maintenance treatments

Consultation needed prior
Yes

We are all individuals therefore results from treatments may vary from person to person, because each person responds differently. Results achieved from the Veinwave treatment will last a different amount of time from person to person, this may even vary between treatments for an individual. Results, down time and recovery following treatment will vary from patient to patient. The information we provide is based on the extensive experience we have gained from treating a wide variety of patients of different ages, genders and is based on an average patient experience.

Amazing experience. Jane The dermatologist was knowledgeable but also caring, she gave me tailored advice and an aftercare plan. She made sure I knew what was going to happen and was comfortable throughout the whole procedure. She listened to my concerns and found ways to work with my situation, even gave me some stress ball to help with my nerves :). Looking forward to my next appointment.

I cannot recommend the team the innovation and treatments more highly than at the Skin To Love Clinic. They are at the cutting edge of beauty and have new ways and procedures that make your skin look beautiful. I've spent many years on Harley and Wimpole street and assumed you couldn't get this level of investment and treatments anywhere else but the Skin the Love clinic not only offer every top treatment but the Jane and Sue are so skillful and have a real eye for what will work for you. Their mini thread lift is incredible as is their 'vampire' treatment but skin since I have moved to St Albans has improved dramatically

I have several issues with my skin and have been working with my doctor to deal with them. He referred me to a Dermatologist who advised on the treatment I needed. It took me a while to find the right place with the level of expertise that I needed and The Skin to Love Clinic ticked all of the boxes. My first experience with The Skin to Love Clinic was about 2 years ago. I had a consultation with Jane and immediately knew I was in good hands. I had a series of Fraxel laser which dealt with the issue as well as improved the quality of my skin. I am now dealing with a different issue and without hesitation made an appointment with Jane. What a relief to know that once again, I will be in the best hands and get the most appropriate treatment for my skin, not only dealing with the issue but also improving the health of my skin at the same time.

I visited the Skin to Love Clinic today for my fourth and final treatment of Sunekos today. The results have exceeded my expectations. My skin is plumper and lines are definitely diminished. I look younger, healthier and I’m definitely happier. As always the experience was second to none from the moment you walk through the front door, from the receptionist, to all the clinicians, who make you feel welcome and comfortable with their warmth and friendliness whilst still maintaining their professionalism, instilling the confidence needed when embarking on cosmetic treatments. Thank you to all the team! I can’t recommend this clinic enough! Rita x

I had a consultation today, the clinic is lovely and staff are very welcoming, I’m so happy with the information I was given, I’m quite excited to start using the products recommended for my skin type and see the change that occurs, it was so nice to actually have a in-depth conversation with someone that clearly knows what they are talking about, in the past Iv always made the mistake of trusting a beautician and trying treatments that are not suited to my skin.. yes they are great at some things they do but they are not trained enough to offer the advice and treatment that has been offered to me at the skin to love clinic... it’s also great to see the breakdown of all the skin complaints on the computer as it helps to point out the main issues, i can’t wait to start treatment in the very near future, fingers crossed onwards and upwards... thanks for the help today

The Ice Soprano laser treatment is actually bearable. In fact, I hardly felt much! I was in for just over 2 hours and I was nervous but honestly it was a breeze. I had previously had 4 treatments of laser hair removal years ago (somewhere else and not the soprano ice) and it was so painful, but this wasn't at all! Today was my first session, I have 7 more to go and now I'm not worried about that :)

A huge thank you to Jane Lewis at The Skin to Love Clinic for my wonderful treatment today (dermal fillers in my cheeks and lower face). I am in my mid 40’s and was really starting to notice that the area around my mouth and jowls was looking rather droopy and saggy. I am also getting married in a few weeks and was in need of some gentle rejuvenation. Jane gave me fillers in my cheeks to lift up the lines and then gently filled the area around my nose to mouth lines, chin and jaw. What a skilled nurse she is, she was extremely gentle and very reassuring, explaining everything step by step. It didn’t hurt at all, and all I could feel was a tiny scratch when the needle first goes in, but that was it. The results are amazing, instantly I can see that my saggy lower face has lifted, the lines are smoother and I have a little more subtle volume in my cheeks. No bruises or red marks. In fact, no-one would know, I just look better and refreshed, a few years taken off of me in time for my wedding. I am over the moon, thank you so much Jane and her fabulous clinic manager Kerri. I will definitely be back 😊.

I made the mistake of buying a product called Eyesential; an under eye enhancer which temporarily erases puffiness, fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles in minutes and lasts for up to 8 hours. I used this product for a period of 7 years. During this time, the skin under and around my eyes became thinner, reddened, chronically dry and intensely wrinkled. I thought there was nothing I could do and would be left like this. I felt so depressed. Then one day when I was in The Skin to Love Clinic having treatment for Laser Hair Removal; I was informed about Thermage for the very first time. I now have this procedure done yearly. Jane has brought my skin back to its original state and more. My confidence has come back and I feel a so much happier. This treatment really works!

I went to The Skin To Love Clinic for a consultation today with regard to gaining treatment advice for the skin on my stomach after having three children. I did my research and after travelling for over an hour I met with Jane. I could not have asked for a warmer welcome from Jane and her team. She instantly put me at ease with her knowledge and understanding of the treatments that are provided at her clinic. She gave me a thorough run down of what she thought would be best for me and why. From the moment I arrived to my departure, I found the staff and environment to be extremely professional yet inviting. I am looking forward to going back and having my treatments.Having now been back to the Clinic to see Jane for the third time today and I stand by what I have said above. Jane is outstanding in her knowledge of treatments and explains them thoroughly. An outstanding setting which I am so pleased I have found and one that I would highly recommend.

I had another memorable day at the Skin-To-Love Clinic in St. Albans on Tuesday 26 March 2019. The founder and her staff including the Skin Expert are always polite, respectful and approachable, which in my opinion is second to none in the industry. I do enjoy making the journey from London to see Sharon, the Skin Expert at the Clinic. I am happy the treatment has worked and I will be submitting a full review of my Obagi skin care regime, shortly.

I tried the new Byonik treatment which was really good. It was the first session so wasn't expecting any big changes to my skin but it looked lovely and fresh afterwards and it was very relaxing. To see better results I think I would need to have another 2-3 sessions. The staff are very professional, very skilled and knowledgeable about all the treatments available and I trust them with my skin. MT

The welcome and ambiance of The Skin to Love Clinic was perfect.Jane has a rare skill - she listens! She manages to combine her insight with professionalism , empathy and sound advice. The wealth of her experience and knowledge is obvious and there was no pressure to commit to any treatments - in fact her advice was to go away and think about the options.I feel I have just discovered a real gem of a place and a very special practitioner!

I have done courses of clear and brilliant and am now doing Regenlite course - getting Jane’s expert advise is great and as a result I am actually using less products than before. Everyone at the clinic is super welcoming/friendly - would highly recommend clinic!Brigitte
