What if I told you there was a new way to significantly reduce bruising and downtime associated with cosmetic injectables at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine to virtually none ANDmaximise your results at the same time? You’d no longer have to worry about embarrassing tell-tale signs of a visit to your cosmetic doctor or cancelling important social and work commitments.
Well, it’s your lucky day because there is! AccuVein® is a new state-of-the-art handheld device I’ve been using (and loving) at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine. It shines a Near-Infrared (NIR) light on your skin to visually show and map veins that cannot be seen with the naked eye, so that they can be avoided when injecting dermal fillers and muscle relaxants. This non-invasive method both increases precision and maximises your procedure outcome – no matter how experienced the practitioner.
The visual projection has a centre line accuracy of less than the width of a human hair with independent studies showing that the AccuVein vein detection device improves first stick success by 98%! A huge bonus for those who find cosmetic injectables particularly painful even with numbing treatments prior to. This means better results, less pain and significantly reduced risks of bruising; possible migration of the injected fluids; and other associated complications. You’d be silly not to use this technology to your advantage.
This is why we’re now proudly offering AccuVein as a free service on top of any cosmetic injectable treatment at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine for pure added comfort and peace of mind. Simply mention this post or AccuVein when booking on 0403 690 031.
We’ve so far found AccuVein has worked wonders for reducing bruising around the eyes post anti-wrinkle and filler treatments as well as with lip enhancement procedures. This type of vein visualization is suitable for all body types and skin tones.
How does it work? Haemoglobin in the blood (the protein that carries oxygen around the body) absorbs infrared light so when the device is held above the skin, veins appear noticeably different than the surrounding tissue as show in image one and two. The vasculature shows up clearly on the skin’s surface, aiding in vein location for access and avoidance. The use of vein illumination can help physicians be more careful during injectable procedures and help them to more easily follow the FDA’s newly suggested guidelines for administering fillers in the soft tissue of the face.
Of course, AccuVein isn’t just making waves in the cosmetic industry. Medical practitioners around the world are jumping on the bandwagon and using vein illumination for IV access, blood draw, dental IV sedation, surgery and PRP procedures.
