Although some lasers are effective for small spider veins on the face, they provide inconsistent and often disappointing results when used for spider veins on the leg. As an added inconvenience, sun exposure must be avoided for weeks after laser treatment.

But a new, more convenient, and highly effective alternative has emerged – radiofrequency. It has recently been shown to provide excellent results for smaller spider veins in many areas including the legs.

Because injections often flow from one vein to another, this process is very efficient and cost-effective. However, some pink spider veins are simply too small to be safely injected. Sometimes known as “matting,” these are often the result of prior sclerotherapy around the knees or elsewhere, especially when feeder veins are neglected.

With VeinWave, we now have a way to immediately eliminate the smallest of veins anywhere on the body without having to wear compression stockings or worry about sun exposure. Short bursts of radio frequency energy are aimed at the veins, instantly sealing them shut, causing the treated veins to disappear with tiny scabs that resolve in 2 – 4 weeks.

An examination is done first to determine if expert injections are necessary to clear feeder veins before VeinWave treatment, and if sclerotherapy is a more cost-effective option. Although it is unrealistic to expect 100% elimination of tiny spider veins, we can now bring you one level closer to that ideal goal.
