What is the purpose of AccuVein?
Avoiding veins helps avoid bruising. AccuVein is the industry leading vein illumination device that facilitates locating peripheral vasculature by displaying a map of the vasculature directly on the patient’s skin.
How does it 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.
AccuVein can help in cosmetic procedures to:
* Locate and avoid veins
* Minimize bruising
* Reduce healing time by optimizing site selection
* Improve patient satisfaction
By using vein illumination with AccuVein’s breakthrough device, many veins that might be otherwise undetectable without a vein locator, can be located and mapped on the patient’s skin.
