VEINLITE is a popular technology for imaging and mapping varicose veins prior to treatment. VEINLITE allows superficial veins to be visualized with unprecedented clarity. Its 150 watt halogen light and side-transillumination method allow for uniform transillumination of the skin anywhere on the body. VEINLITE assessment eliminates guesswork by securing the vein in place, and it stretches the skin to allow a needle to be inserted with greater precision.
VEINLITE assessment is used to assess spider veins, telangiectasia, and reticular veins, which are small veins that lie 3 to 5mm beyond the surface of the skin. Although they are not visible to the naked eye, reticular veins often feed small superficial veins. By using a VEINLITE assessment to find and inject reticular veins, Our Doctors can reduce the total number of sclerotherapy injections required during treatment.
