Avoid injection complications and improve the outcome of various vein treatments.

The AccuVein AV400, a non-contact, lightweight, portable vein illumination device, provides a visual road map of the patient’s vasculature on the surface of the skin. The ability to visualize a patient’s unique anatomy facilitates vein avoidance with refined needle placement to minimize bruising during injectable procedures. It also helps in sclerotherapy procedures to identify feeder veins so the source of spider vein clusters can be treated. AccuVein Vein visualization works for all body types and skin tones.

Seeing beneath the skin to avoid the bruise.

Bruising from cosmetic injections is quite common with some treatments, but why does this occur? Cosmetic Injections can cause a bruise, no matter how careful or experienced a physician is. Why? Because until now there was never a way to see “beneath the skin” to avoid nipping a blood vessel. The face is incredibly vascular – that’s the primary reason the face bruises so easily.

Seeing the vessels before we inject

When we can see the vessels and avoid them, the potential for that accidental bruise goes WAY down. Before AccuVein, any injector was essentially operating blind – and even with precision knowledge of facial vein anatomy, every single person’s vein map is different.

How does AccuVein work?

Hemoglobin in the blood absorbs infrared light. When the device is held above the skin, veins appear noticeably different than the surrounding tissue. The vasculature shows up clearly on the skin’s surface, aiding in vein location for access and avoidance.

Does using the AccuVein interfere with my treatment?

Absolutely not. The device never touches your skin. Our medical assistant simply focuses the beam on the area to be injected and the veins instantly and clearly become obvious.

AccuVein and MicroCannula – the perfect pair

Dr. Sani has been using microcannulas for placing most fillers for the past two years. MicroCannulas allow for a single port instead of multiple needle sticks. The smooth round tip of the cannula pushes veins out of the way. The AccuVein allows him to see the veins before even making the initial opening for the cannula.

Combined, the cannula and vein illumination provide the best opportunity for a “no bruise” injection procedure that exists!

Vein illumination – the solution

AccuVein precisely illuminates veins, large and small, on any area of the face and body, allowing us to avoid them. In my practice, to date I’m seeing an 80 to 90% REDUCTION in bruising simply be being able to see the location of the veins through the skin before I inject. That’s absolutely remarkable!

Quick Facts About AccuVein

Patient-friendly

Let’s face it, most patients don’t find needles fun. But the AccuVein device can make them less stressful. When physicians, nurses, and phlebotomists use it to help find a vein for a blood draw or to start an IV , patients may feel more confident in the skill of their caregiver. What’s more, for most patients seeing a “map” of their veins is a WOW! moment.

Portable

The device is easy to use because it runs on a battery and the room doesn’t need to be darkened to use it. Because of its portability, there’s no need for the patient to be transported to the device. It may be useful even for those patients who have been told they have “difficult veins.”

Safe

The AccuVein Vein Illumination System was designed with safety in mind and the goal of minimizing venipuncture complications. The light projected by the device can detect veins without the need for physical contact with skin.
