Veinwave – Thread vein treatments
All Oris treatments follow a detailed pre-treatment consultation. At this consultation you will discuss with the doctor the look you wish to achieve. Your Oris doctor will advise you which treatments will be most effective at helping you reach this. If you decide to proceed the doctor will make a detailed record of your medical history and conduct a careful examination of the areas you wish to be treated.
Prior to treatment your skin will be cleansed, if necessary, to remove any makeup. We advise that you do not have treatment if you have fake tan products on your skin. Veinwave uses a very fine needle which the doctor inserts along the length of the veins to be treated. This results in a fine ‘pricking’ sensation. Most people find this sensation mildly uncomfortable.
The treatment lasts for a maximum of 15 minutes. No bandages are required and you can resume your everyday activities immediately after your treatment session. Afterwards the area can appear slightly red and can feel warm to touch. This usually settles within a few hours.
In the days after the treatment the treated veins can initially appear darker in colour than previously. Over time the veins become paler and much less noticeable. In most cases a series of veinwave treatments may be required to achieve the desired result. We recommend a 2 week rest period between treatments.
