Veinwave

Veinwave

Veinwave Treatment uses microwave technology to destroy thread veins. It is far more successful in the treatment of thread veins than laser therapy and is also virtually painless. It is non-invasive and may achieve instant results. Broken veins on face spider veins, cherry angioma removal, and thread veins; are 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.

Veinwave is an aesthetic procedure where a targeted area of the body is exposed to microwaves. The heat the microwave generates to the target area destroys the vein, allowing the vein to be reabsorbed by the body over time. As the treatment is confined to a small, affected area, it does not unnecessarily damage any non-affected tissue.

Veinwave Treatment

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.

I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience.

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
