EA Clinic offers the state-of-the-art Veinwave treatment, developed by a leading vascular surgeon specifically for the treatment of fine thread veins, telangiectasia (Spider Veins), psoriasis and rosacea. This technique can be used on any skin type and causes no bruising, or need for any type of bandages.
More than 350 surgeons in Europe have successfully trained in Veinwave TM techinques and the product has recently been taken on by Harvard Medical School and the New York Vein Centre.
Veinwave treatments utilise an ultra fine insulated sterile needle which allows accurate application of the treatment whilst protecting the skin and the surrounding tissue.
It is unique in its use of microwaves to heat vessels/veins, utilising a very high-frequency energy, resulting in the instant disappearance; a process known as “Thermo-Coagulation”. As Thermo-Coagulation uses a selective controlled energy, which preserves the epidermis, there are no risks of burns or necrosis.
One treatment session usually lasts around 10-15 minutes, representing approximately 200-250 pulses, and the results, due to the vein collapsing and instantly disappearing, can be seen immediately.

How safe is treatment?
There are minimal side effects to using Veinwave. Larger thread veins may be more effectively treated using sclerotherapy. Unlike laser treatment, protection from the sun is not necessary. If the treated area is a little sore or dry, then the application of aloe vera gel may help.
There is no evidence that the treatment can lead to skin disorders, nor an increased risk of cancer. However, treatment is not suitable during pregnancy, or for patients with epilepsy or a pacemaker. Only qualified and fully trained staff may carry out treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on how many spider veins have appeared. Each session involves nearly 250 pulses which treats and 30-50cm of spider veins. Most of our clients can be treated in 2 to 4 sessions making it a fast, effective and inexpensive treatment.
The results will be obvious in most patients after 6 weeks but for some people, it can take longer for the treatment to work.
Does Veinwave work on all spider veins?
The procedure is relatively painless and unlike any other treatment, can be applied to all areas of the body, even to the knee and ankle which are otherwise too difficult to treat. The client can resume everyday activity immediately after their 15 minute treatment session.
What can I expect?
Often there are small areas of “scabbing” that drop off and leave no permanent marks and a significant reduction in thread veins
Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?
Pre-existing suntans do not affect or prevent the Veinwave treatment but is adviced that sun bathing could be detrimental for a 6 week period after the treatment.
Are there side-effects?
What are the benefits?
Veinwave is a relatively painless procedure that can be applied to all areas of the body, including difficult to treat areas, such as the knee and ankle. There is no risk of bruising, scarring or pigmentation. No bandages are required, and the patient may resume everyday activity 15 minutes after their treatment session.
How does Veinwave work?
Veinwave eliminates veins via a process known as thermo-coagulation. Using high frequency microwaves, an ultra-fine insulated needle heats the vessels in the skin, which creates a thermal lesion that destroys the vein. This allows accurate application of the treatment, whilst protecting the skin and surrounding tissue.
What are thread veins?
They are small blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin and have the appearance of fine red, or purple squiggles. Other names are ‘spider veins’ or ‘broken veins’, the veins are infact not broken but just enlarged.Telangiectasia is the medical terminology.
Who gets them? The majority of us as we age. Approximately one in every five women in their 20’s will have thread veins, thus sum increases to roughly 50% by the age of forty and continues to increase. By the age of 70 over 70% of female will hav thread veins.
