Veinwave Eliminates Spider Veins and Telangiectasia

(PRWEB) December 10, 2009 -- Millions of men and women suffer from spider veins and telangiectasia – those unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple veins that spider-web across the nose, cheeks, legs and ankles. In fact, for Western populations like the US, it’s been estimated that 25-30% of women and 10-20% of men suffer from this unsightly condition.

Although the Veinwave has been available for over 8 years in Europe (where it is enjoyed by over 1000 physicians), the FDA only recently cleared the revolutionary Veinwave device to use in our country. Dr. Mark Blumenthal of the Vein Center & CosMed has been selected as the first physician to offer this revolutionary treatment in St. Louis and surrounding areas.

Veinwave is designed primarily for use by vascular surgeons. Veinwave uses a revolutionary process called “Unipolar Thermo-coagulation (UTC)”. Unique, high frequency energy is applied to the affected area, which causes the vein walls to collapse. The veins disappear before your eyes. It is very safe, effective and permanent.

Until now, lasers and IPL devices have tried to treat these veins, but with limited success. Unlike lasers, the Veinwave involves only slight discomfort, so there is no need for anesthetic creams or pain medications.

Also, the Veinwave doesn’t carry a risk of long-term scarring and a session is over in about 15 minutes. The Veinwave ultra-fine, insulated probe permits a highly targeted treatment that doesn’t irritate the surrounding skin. Therefore, within minutes after the session, patients can resume their everyday activities without bandages as if it never happened.

As a combination therapy, Veinwave is the perfect complement to sclerotherapy, which provides successful treatment on the larger leg veins.

About The Vein Center & Cosmed, Inc.
Complete information on Veinwave is available at www.veincentercosmed.com or by calling 314-966-6100. Dr. Mark Blumenthal is a board certified general and vascular surgeon. He founded The Vein Center & Cosmed, Inc. in 1991. It continues to be the St. Louis area’s premier facility for the medical and cosmetic treatment of vascular conditions.
