AccuVein® Vein Viewing Device
Improving Patient Outcomes with AccuVein®
Only millimeters below your facial skin lies an incredibly intricate and delicate network of veins. When getting treatments like Botox or dermal fillers limited bruising has generally been considered an inevitable side effect of injectable treatments simply because your facial veins are so delicate and difficult to avoid. Bruising can be embarrassing and often difficult to conceal. They are a result of the vein being disrupted under the skin during treatment.
At All About You Medical Spa, we’re taking steps to reduce issues like bruising during cosmetic treatments with AccuVein’s “Vein Visualization” technology.
Benefits of AccuVein

- Minimize bruising following treatments

With AccuVein, Dr. Gould can locate otherwise undetectable veins and map them out to make sure they are avoided during treatment. Most practitioners perform injections blindly knowing the typical areas where veins cluster and avoiding them. But every person has a unique distribution of veins which can make it difficult to have consistency in avoiding veins. The accuracy in vein avoidance is paramount in achieving little to no bruising, but it is common that injectors accidentally inject too close to blood vessels. The consequence is that bruising after Botox, other neurotoxins, and dermal fillers is a common side effect. This shouldn’t be the case.
What is AccuVein and How Does It Work?
The Accuvein AV400 Vein Viewing system uses a technique known as “vein visualization” or “vein mapping” to show us where the veins are under a patient’s skin so that they can be avoided completely.
The Accuvein technology uses two lasers, the same supersafe type used for barcode scanners, one infrared and one visible red light. AccuVein’s vein visualization technology works by allowing the hemoglobin to absorb infrared light, illuminating the blood vessels from the rest of the surrounding area. When the AccuVein is held above the skin; it allows clear visibility of veins of different sizes, regardless of the individual’s skin tone.
Is This Only Useful for Certain Skin Types?
This device is useful on all skin types but we have found that it can be especially useful in darker skin types where veins are more difficult to identify.
