Newest Technology for Treating Spider Veins

La Jolla Vein Care is pleased to announce its newest device for treating small spider veins—The VeinWave. This device uses radiofrequency energy to destroy spider veins with a high degree of precision, thus making it easier than ever to remove unsightly veins on the face or legs. The VeinWave is considerably more advanced than laser technology because it capable of pinpointing the damaged vein with greater precision, keeping the surrounding skin unharmed. By focusing specifically on the damaged vein, patients can eliminate the sunburn appearance that often results after laser treatments.
