Veinwave treatment - How does it work? Is it good for spider veins?

VeinWave and success

Vein wave is a through the skin radiofrequency treatment for small visible veins.  This has very little recovery and little bruising and works fairly well, the main issue is to find an office that has a machine made within the last year ( only 5 in US) as previous models were underpowered and may not have resulted in complete treatment.

Veinwave vs. lasers for spider veins in Santa Monica

There are many ways to remove surface veins. I would suggest laser therapy instead of vein wave to eliminate facial spider veins. Laser can be more powerful than RF.
