What is Veinwave™?
Veinwave™ is a cutting-edge technology that utilizes thermo-coagulation to eliminate spider veins, hemangiomas, and telangiectasia that display as negative facial focal points. Developed by vascular surgeons, Veinwave™ can eliminate tiny veins that sclerotherapy cannot treat.
Veinwave™ uses thermo-coagulation, which heats and closes tiny blood vessels immediately. The procedure takes under 15 minutes to perform, resulting in no downtime.

How is Veinwave™ Treatment Performed?
Veinwave™ utilizes a collection of technologies to eliminate problem veins. The process makes the blood vessels heat up to the degree that they effectively collapse. This process can be thought of as similar to sucking on a drinking straw until the sides fold inward.
First, the treatment area is cleansed thoroughly. Dr. Moszczynski will then insert a very fine needle to administer the treatment beneath the skin’s surface without puncturing the actual blood vessel. This allows tiny blood vessels to be eliminated quickly. Procedures normally last no longer than 15 minutes, and no bandages are needed.
Does Veinwave™ Treat Rosacea?
Veinwave™ has been used outside the U.S. for the treatment of rosacea, but has not been approved by the FDA for such use. European doctors have found that Veinwave™ is highly effective at removing rosacea symptoms without curing the condition. The number of treatments required is dependent upon the severity of the disease.
Is Veinwave™ Treatment Painful?
Very little discomfort is to be expected during a Veinwave™ treatment. This is because a very fine needle is used. Most patients experience nothing more than a brief pinprick sensation.
What can I Expect When Recovering from Veinwave™ Treatment?
You can expect no downtime whatsoever after your Veinwave™ treatment. Patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately. No bandages are necessary.
When will I Notice Results from Veinwave™ Treatment?
You should start seeing results immediately after your Veinwave™ treatment as the unsightly veins begin closing and disappearing. You should continue seeing more results over the course of the next few days.
What Long-Term Results Can I Expect from Veinwave™?
Veinwave™ treatment for spider veins has permanent results. You will no longer be bothered by these unsightly veins after your treatment.
How Many Sessions are Needed for A Successful Veinwave™ Treatment?
Many people require only one treatment while others may need up to three treatments for ideal results.
When Can I Return to Work After my Veinwave™ Treatment?
You can expect to return to work immediately following your Veinwave™ procedure.
How Does the Treated Area Appear Following Treatment?
After treatment, most vessels completely disappear. Some people experience something that looks like a mild “cat scratch”, with pinkness that fades quickly. Any tiny scabs that are evident will also resolve themselves over the course of several days. Sometimes, the skin may appear temporarily darker following the treatment. This will also resolve itself similar to how a bruise fades. Patients who are prone to strong flushing or histamine allergic reactions may require a topical steroid.
After Treatment, can the Vein Return?
When properly treated, the body removes unwanted debris, and it will fade like a bruise. Your metabolism, overall health, and other factors will determine the length of this process. Although the problem vessels disappear, this does not mean new ones will not form.
Why is Veinwave™ Superior to Other Types of Procedures?
Veinwave™ has numerous advantages over other types of procedures that treat telangiectasia and spider veins, including:
- No bruising
- Less pain
- No downtime
- Extremely safe
- Able to treat areas such as the face, ankles, and knees
- Faster than other treatments
Is Veinwave™ treatment approved for use in the U.S.?
Veinwave™ has been used for a number of years in Europe, and was recently approved by the FDA for use in the U.S.
What is the Cost of Veinwave™ Treatment?
