Don't do it!!! I walked into the treatment centre with a couple of MINOR veins and walked out with several scars (hyperpigmented) and a ton of new matted veins caused by the treatment! It hurts like hell too. I literally had tears running down my face. I was swollen for about a week and had a lot of micro-scabbing and sensitivity, for about a week and a half. SO not worth it. I wish I never did this to myself. Now, I'm terrified to get help to correct it! My treatment was administered by a board certified dermatologist....just sayin'!

I was skeptical , as nothing seemed to happen after one treatment, however I persevered as the therapist advised and after a few treatments I am very pleased with the results (legs and face). very happy.

I had very bad broken veins across my nose, veinwave is painful on the face, don''t let them tell you otherwise but 100 percent worth it! I had tried laser with no effect but now they are gone!

I have had many years of issues with spider veins, specifically around the nose area and I have tried laser treatment on two separate occasions with little effect. The pain from the lasers I found very uncomfortable and resorted to using camouflage on a daily basis. I came across thermocoagulation during an internet search and although more expensive I only require two treatments. Overall a similar cost but this really worked for me and I would highly recommend Kevin at the Hemel Hempstead clinic who did a great job. I have booked my second appointment this week to clear some of the minor veins that were left. I have not had to use cover up since the first treatment. You are left with a little redness and minor swelling which calms within hours, it will make your eyes water but worth the small amount of discomfort it causes. After reading a bad review I decided to post my experience here because the practitioner I used was extremely professional and competent and the whole experience was worth the 300 mile round journey.

Veinwave made the thread veins worse. My legs look like the before picture and I have more restriction on what I can wear. I do not recommend this treatment
