How to Use



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.


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!


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.
