Reduction in Bruising Seen in Cosmetic Procedures Using AccuVein AV400 Vein Illumination Device
Long Island, NY, July 16, 2013 – AccuVein Inc., the global leader in vein illumination and the creator of the world’s only hand-held, non-contact vein illumination device today announced that its AccuVein AV400 was showcased at the 9th Annual Cosmetic Bootcamp in Aspen, Colorado. The Cosmetic Bootcamp is the leading specialty training symposium for core aesthetic physicians.
At the conference in which live injections were performed, Mary P Lupo MD, FAAD, a leading expert in cosmetic dermatology and one of the Cosmetic Bootcamp founders, said they saw a reduction in bruising associated with the injections that used the AccuVein device. The AccuVein AV400 vein illumination device highlights the patient’s vasculature on the surface of the skin in order to locate and avoid veins for cosmetic procedures. It is important to avoid veins in these procedures in order to minimize patient bruising.
“I find the device useful prior to botox procedures to help identify and avoid facial veins,” said Dr. Lupo, an early adopter of vein illumination in cosmetic procedures.
“The use of AccuVein vein illumination in cosmetic procedures is an important application of the device,” said AccuVein COO, Daniel Delaney. “We were thrilled with the response we’ve seen from the cosmetic physician community and excited to be told the AccuVein device was helpful in reducing bruising that can accompany cosmetic procedures.”
In addition to locating veins for vein avoidance, AccuVein vein illumination can be used to locate veins for venous access procedures such as IV starts, blood draw and sclerotherapy.
