Although spider veins are typically seen on the legs, they can also appear on the face and nose. These broken blood vessels on the face, also known as telangiectasias, are enlarged veins that occur just beneath the surface of the skin. These are often caused by the natural aging process, sun damage, trauma to the area, certain skin disorders, such as rosacea or genetics. The good news is that you don’t have to live with these imperfections on your face forever because of a revolutionary treatment called VeinWave™.
What is VeinWave™?
VeinWave™ is an FDA-cleared treatment for spider veins on delicate parts of the body such as the face and nose. It is a great treatment for spider veins that are too tiny for sclerotherapy needles, and it offers incredible results.
VeinWave™ works by delivering a series of pulses of radiofrequency energy to the vein wall causing the vein to close. It can instantly fade away spider veins on your face and nose.
Benefits of VeinWave™
VeinWave™ offers a variety of noteworthy benefits, including immediate results! Right after treatment, you will notice a visible improvement in the treated spider veins. Some patients with sensitive skin may notice temporary redness for approximately 2-weeks after their procedure. Most patients will require 1-2 treatments for complete clearance. VeinWave reduces the high risk of burns and scarring that can be associated with laser and light treatments.
VeinWave™ Consultations Available
You can resume work and your other daily responsibilities after a VeinWave™ treatment, which can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. In addition, while VeinWave™ is commonly used on the face and nose, it can also be used to safely treat spider veins on the legs, ankles, and feet if needed.
Good Candidates for VeinWave™
If you are in good general health and bothered by unsightly spider veins on your face and nose, you may be a good candidate for VeinWave™. VeinWave™ may also be the ideal option if your veins are too small for sclerotherapy. Scheduling a consultation is a great way to find out whether you’re a good candidate for VeinWave™. This treatment should not be used on patients with an allergy to nickel.
