Veinlite® Assessment

Veinlite Assessment San Luis Obispo (SLO) County CAVeinlite® vein finders use innovative technology to provide accurate visualization and mapping of varicose veins. By providing outstanding clarity, Veinlite® vein finders assist in the treatment of damaged veins. They delineate veins with unprecedented accuracy, allowing sclerotherapy needles to be inserted in precisely the correct places. The ultrabright halogen light of Veinlite® vein finders maximizes imaging contrast, providing uniform illumination of the skin on any part of the body. In addition, the patented C-shape of the Veinlite illuminators makes needle injection easy and safer compared with standard techniques.

 

During a typical assessment of vascular issues, the patient completes a detailed questionnaire, and has a consultation with Dr Stevens. The patient's vascular health is then evaluated using a Veinlite® vein finder, which consists of a halogen light source, a high-quality fiberoptic cable, and a patented ring illuminator. The illuminator is directed toward the skin at a specific angle, creating a virtual light source underneath the skin that clearly delineates veins. In this way, the problematic network of veins can be thoroughly examined.

Veinlite® Assessment is used for telangiectasia (spider veins), and reticular veins (small, netlike veins), the veins least visible to the naked eye, because Dr Stevens is better able to see the veins during treatment, the number of sclerotherapy injections needed is reduced.

Because venipuncture and vein access are among the most commonly performed medical procedures, Veinlite® Assessment is an invaluable tool for doctors dealing with vascular issues. Even skilled professionals often have difficulty locating satisfactory veins in certain patients, particularly those who are obese, have dark skin, or are very young or old. Veinlite® vein finders have the advantage of greatly decreasing the number of venipuncture attempts, thereby reducing patient discomfort, and making treatment faster and more efficient.
