How to Use:
Step 1: Dim the lights as much as possible. A dark room will show the best results. Turn the Illumivein® on by pressing the button on the bottom of the device.
Step 2: Putting gentle pressure onto the skin with the light, slowly move the device from side to side. Veins will show as a shadow, or dark line, that will appear in the peripheral of the red glow seen around the device. Note: The device must stay in contact with the skin while searching for a vein. Holding the light away from the skin will not show anything!
Step 3: Once a vein (dark shadow/line) is found, reposition the Illumivein® around the area for the best visual of the vein. If the vein is more superficial to the surface, you may have to move the light source further away as it might be too bright and mask the vein. It is best to follow the path of the vein so that you have a full visual of its size and direction.
Note: It is best to find a vein that follows a straight path.
Congratulations! You have found your vein.
What is the Illumivein? The Illumivein® is a High Powered, Red LED, Vein Finder or Transilluminator. It is designed to help you locate veins that are deep and hidden beneath the skin. Unlike an ordinary flashlight, our unique red led lighting allows for a natural absorption of the light frequency, casting off an incredibly powerful shadow of the vein.
Other professional vein finders retail for over $200 USD. The Illumivein® retails for only $24.99!
How does it work? The Illumivein® uses special high-intensity red LEDs to illuminate a person’s subcutaneous tissue. The light is ~650 nm in wavelength which becomes absorbed by the deoxygenated blood. Because of it being visually absorbed, we are able to see a dark shadow like figure representing a vein. The contrast between the illumination and the vein allows for a direct visual.
Is the product safe? The Illumivein® is 100% safe for direct contact. Unlike traditional light sources, LEDs do not produce heat thus making it safe to touch always.
Warning: Never look directly into the light source!
How long does the device last? Our Illumivein®’s LEDs have a long lifespan of an estimated ~100,000 hours. If your product fails within a year,
Why can’t I see any veins? Please make sure you read through our “How to Use” section on our website, look at the pictures, carefully. We will admit, there is a slight learning curve when using the device and it will take attempts on several people to start to understand what you are looking at.
Deep veins show up much better than superficial veins. This is sometimes due to the light being too bright. To avoid this, we recommend placing the light source further away from where you believe there might be a vein. This will yield better results.
100% GUARANTEED! We believe that the Illumivein® is a premium product and will give you excellent vein finding results. If for some reason you are unhappy with the product, we promise to fully refund your purchase within 30 days. No questions asked.
