Veinwave Treatment For Facial Spider Vein Treatment in Olympia
Veinwave is a relatively new procedure which uses thermocoagulation to safely and effectively treat spider veins on the face and body. This procedure was developed by vascular surgeons as a way to treat very tiny veins that cannot be treated with sclerotherapy. Veinwave can be used to treat veins in difficult to treat locations including the face, ankles and knees. The treatment relies on thermocoagulation ( like a microwave) to heat and close vessels instantly in a procedure that takes less then 20 minutes to perform.
Any adult in good general health who has spider veins particularly on the face who is looking for a quick procedure with no downtime is an excellent candidate.
Veinwave offers many advantages over other procedures used to treat facial veins including:
- less pain
- no bruising
- no downtime
- the ability to treat face, knees and ankles
- high degree of safety
- the treatment is fast
What People Say
Love love love the outcome of this procedure. Face totally clear 7 days later. The last of the "cat scratches" are gone. I feel like I don't have to hide behind makeup anymore. So happy! Thanks again Donna, you rock :)
The Veinwave Procedure
After cleaning the treatment area, we use a very fine needle that microwaves the underlying vein. We do not pierce the vessel itself. Tiny vessels will be destroyed and disappear quickly. Most procedures take between 10-15 minutes to perform and no bandages are required after treatment. While many people are successfully treated with only one session, others may require 2-3 treatments to achieve optimal results. There is a very small risk of scarring, although this risk is less than the risk associated with other vein procedures.
Photos of Treatment Results
There is no downtime associated with the Veinwave procedure. Results are immediate as the tiny veins close and disappear at the time of treatment. Post treatment there can be some redness, rarely swelling and sometimes a “cat scratch” appearance. This is easily covered with makeup. Over the course of 10-14 days, this usually heals. Sometimes it can take longer to achieve optimal results. Treatment with Veinwave is permanent. Once your veins are treated, they are gone.
Facial veins are considered cosmetic and therefore treatment is not covered by insurance. The cost of your Veinwave treatment will vary based on the extent of the area being treated, but generally will cost $250-$400 per treatment.
