How to Find a Vein on a Hard Stick – IV, Venipuncture, & Phlebotomy Trick

This is the best tip and trick for any one trying to draw blood or get an IV in a hard or difficult stick. Never miss again!

The Illumivein™ is a Unique, High Powered Red LED Flashlight that can be used to help anyone locate veins beneath the skin. Its slim and light design makes it extremely easy to carry and ideal for any situation. You will be amazed when you are able to visualize a vein that is invisible to the human eye.


– 9 High Powered LEDs
– Red Illumination
– Black Aluminium Body
– Nylon Wrist Strap
– Stylish, velvet carrying pouch
– 3xAAA Batteries (not included)

This device is similar to a “Vein Transilluminator” or “Vein Finder” which retails for $200+. For $24.99 you get a device that essentially utilizes the same technology, a ~700 nm light frequency that is naturally absorbed by the blood and casts off a dark, shadow like appearance of deep veins.

Need help finding a vein?

For best results please dim or shut off the lights in the room completely.

Step 1: Turn the Illumivein™ on by pressing the button on the bottom of the device.

Step 2: Putting gentle pressure on 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 for best results.

Step 3: Once a vein (dark shadow/line) is found, repostion the Illumivein™ for the best visual of the vein. It is best to follow the path of the vein so that you have a visual of its size and direction.
Note: it is best to find a vein that follows a straight path.

Step 4: Congratulations! You have found your vein.
