  • Veinwave in the US

    Finally found one site mentioning Veinwave treatments in the US

    This one is in Chicago
    http://www.ritaccalasercenter.com/ri-vein.htm

    Has anyone found any other places in the US offering Veinwave?

    Nice work Al,
    I e-mailed their website where they speak of a US launch (http://www.vbeauty.co.uk/index.html), and asked about US locations but never received any response.
    I will search as well, but thanks for the link albeit Chicago is too far for me.
    Yours,
    Rob

      Looks like it's slowly spreading eastward
      This one is Medina ,Ohio
      http://www.trilliumcreekohio.com/der...y/veinwave.asp

      Looking for Washington,DC area myself

      Surprised they didn't start initially rolling it out in your magical Land-O-Derms area where you can get an appointment in 3 hours vs 3 months.

        With the economy the way it is- it's now down to 3 minutes.
        Called on Friday morning on behalf of my wife- the receptionist asked if "today" was good for her.
        And yes- I would have hoped that it would have made it down here as well.

          Is it essentially a heated needle? I looked at the video, but couldn't see very well.

            Well- that depends on your definition of "microwave" and if you are marketing the machine or not.
            But yes, it is not that very different than the traditional hyfrecator http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyfrecator but it does appear to be an improved version.
            Some people have reported great success with it however.

              I found a place in Scottsdale, AZ (near phoenix) that has the Veinwave. They have been using it for 6 months now. They don't have it listed on their website but found them through an internet article that I cannot now find.

              But I called and set up a consultation for 2 weeks from now. I too am trying to get rid of stubborn veins on the sides of my nose that I just can't seem to get rid of. Think I will have them try it one or two veins to start to judge the reaction.

              Here is their website. Dr. Bomer performs the procedure.

              If anyone from the UK has any advice on what to look for in a good practioner let me know. Also, the websites say the results are immediate. Is this true? Do they disappear immediately and do not return? What was the down time like?

                but doesn't look like anyone uses it.

                  Cpt Matt,

                  I am from the UK, if you have a spare moment please look through my previous posts and you will find out all you need to know about Veinwave treatment.

                  In summary- I have found it to be the best treatment to remove visible veins, and yes they do disappear immediately, however, the downside with this condition is you are always susceptible to new veins appearing, not necessarily in the same place as you have had the treatment. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will need top-up treatments every 8 months or so (indefinately ) I must say the new veins that do appear, are much smaller and less thicker than pre veinwave treatment.

                  Expect to have small scabs/redness/soreness on the treatment site for about 5/7 days, then you will see the difference ( hopefully )

                  The needle itself is uncomfortable when inserted into the skin, very much like a bee sting.

                  No pain no gain !!

                      MD,
                      Very much like a "bee sting"- multiple times on my face? Well, at least you aren't sugar coating it or anything.

                        Hi Rob,
                        Honesty is the best policy !!

                        I like to think I have a high pain threshhold, but when that needle hits the sensitive part of my nose ( by the nasal folds ) man , that really makes my eyes water.

                        Just letting you guys know what to expect should you proceed.

                        MD

                          I had the hyfrecator (an electric needle) twice and I found the same thing. I also like to think I can take some pain. I have gotten 6 tattoos, a couple of which are very large and one took about 5 hours and they didn't hold a candle to the hyfrecator on the nose.
                          I was kind of hoping the Veinwave wasn't quite as painful but like you said, "no pain, no gain".
                          Thanks for the honesty (I guess).

                            I have been researching this too and have been in contact with a practitioner in Los Angeles:

                            Alexander Rivkin, MD
                            1033 Gayley Ave., Ste. 104
                            Los Angeles, CA 90024


                            I also contacted veinwave inquiring about a practitioner on the east coast. They told me that "Dr David Glass has recently bought the Veinwave system and is based in New York.
                            His email address is dvascsurg@aol.com."

                            When I looked him up, it appears he is specialized in treating leg veins, so I never contacted him.

                            I have decided to travel to London to see Dr. Newman. My condition got MUCH worse after receiving an aggressive IPL from at a cosmetic dermatology center. Despite meeting with a dermatologist at the center and being assured experience in rosacea and a mild treatment, my second treatment by an aesthetic technician at the center has left me with worsened flushing, increased sun and heat sensitivity, blotches, ocular issues (which I never had before), and vissible vessels that I never had before. So, I've decided that travel to England for veinwave would be the safest option at this point. Vbeam has definately helped some, but the visible vessels around my nose are not responding at all.

                            Good luck! If you get treated in the US, I'd love to hear how it goes. Alyssa

                              So, I had the treatment on Wednesday. It definitely did not feel good. I wouldn't say it "hurt" but was definitely uncomfortable. The removal of the needle is what bothered me the most because it grabbed the skin and pulled on it during removal. Though, they did apply numbing cream prior to treatment. I only had a couple places done but a full 15 minute (what I paid for) treatment would have been not fun.

                              Too early to report on results. I still have pinpoint scabs spaced about 1 mm apart tracing the veins that they treated. They APPEAR to have disappeared completely in spots and improved greatly in others. Though I have been fooled before. I update in a couple of weeks.

                              Overall all I'd say it was a worthwhile procedure thus far. I was not all bruised up like after VBeam and could comfortably live my life immediately after treatment. It has also seemed to affect veins that previously showed no results following MANY different and numerous laser treatments.
