Middlesex, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 08, 2009 -- Clearance to market has been granted by the FDA to the developers of Veinwaveâ¢, the revolutionary treatment for the removal of spider vein and telangiectasia. Having devised the treatment some 10 years ago in conjunction with a group of esteemed European medics, Veinwave was first launched in Londonâs Harley Street in 2001. Endorsed by Dr Brian Newman MD FRCS, Veinwave soon became the gold standard for treating fine spider veins with over 350 practitioners in the UK alone offering the treatment. Whilst lasers and Intense Light systems were used with some degree of success previously, no treatment has proven to be as safe nor as effective as Veinwave.
Utilising the process of UTC (Unipolar Thermo-Coagulation), Veinwave applies a unique localised heat energy, via an ultra fine insulated needle, causing the vein walls to collapse and the vein to disappear instantly. It has a âwowâ factor like no other treatment yet it minimalises the risks associated with alternative treatments such as burning, scaring and pigmentation. Now, having been preparing the paperwork for submission to the FDA over the past 2 years, Medical Innovations, in conjunction with Sovereign Medical Health, have received clearance from the FDA to market Veinwave in the US.
Already met with tremendous applause by a select few Doctors here, given a sneak preview, Veinwave is due to be rolled out across the US within the next few months. Laurence Newman, Managing Director of Medical Innovations, says âVeinwave is the only treatment of its kind utilising the safe characteristics of Thermocoagulation to have been cleared by the FDA. Based upon our experience of 8 years working with Veinwave, there is not a condition we havenât seen, nor a question we havenât heard, when talking about vein treatments and we are bringing that wealth of knowledge and experience to the US. There is no reason why Veinwave cannot be available from every Doctors office with some interest in dealing with patients wanting their unsightly veins removed â and for those of us who suffer that blight, it can be a real psychological problem for the individualâ. A launch for Veinwave is planned for September and it will then be presented at exhibitions and vascular conferences across the US in the weeks that follow. Adam Rubens, CEO of Sovereign Medical Health says that they "have already received dozens of enquiries from Doctors seeking more information on the treatment. We will be presenting Veinwave at workshops from State to State in the next few months. Anyone wishing to attend can log in to our website at http://www.veinwave.com to find out more information on the treatment and the locations of those meetings. We are extremely excited about the prospects of Veinwave here in the US particularly now that we have received clearance from the FDA which gives it the credibility it deservesâ.
