Like the arachnids with which they share a name, spider veins can be a nuisance even when tiny. Traditional sclerotherapy and laser treatments, though effective on larger veins, oftentimes fail to diminish the appearance of their smaller siblings. Enter Vanishing Vein’s Veinwave treatment, developed specifically to ameliorate the tiny veins that sometimes appear around the nose or ankles.
The treatment may rely on advanced medical science, but its methodology is fairly straightforward. An ultra-fine, insulated needle touches down on the skin's surface, sending heat energy to veins without actually piercing the dermis. This energy collapses the vein walls so the body can eventually absorb them, much as it absorbs sunlight during the complex process of photosynthesis.
