VeinGogh is the fast, easy way to reliably treat spider veins and telangiectasia often with less discomfort compared to older therapies. While lasers and other light-based solutions are expensive, skin-type dependent and have an inherent risk of injury, VeinGogh uses a hair-thin, insulated probe to thermocoagulate and instantly eliminate vessels dependably, repeatably, and on any skin-type.
How does it work?
The VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System generates a tiny, regulated, high frequency current delivered to the vessel via a hair thin probe. A “microburst” of energy selectivy heats the vein, coagulating the blood and collapsing the vessel wall, which is quickly absorbed into the body. All this is accomplished without affecting the outer layers of the skin resulting in a quick return to normal daily activities.
Does the treatment hurt?
On a pain scale of 1-10, with some laser treatments being an 8-9, VeinGogh is a 2-3. Since the procedure uses a hair thin probe inserted into the vessel, there can be a slight “pinch” Patients report that it feels similar to a hair being removed.
Is there any downtime?
The precise nature of the VeinGogh treatment limits the risk of over-treating, so there is little to no trauma to the skin. Following treatment, there will be some mild redness that usually lasts about 1-2 hours.
How Long is a typical treatment?
Depending on the size of the area, treatments can range from about a minute for minor lesions on the nose, and up to 20-25 minutes for a more extensive condition covering much of the face or legs.
When will I see results?
Immediatly. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated vessels are reabsorbed.
How many treatments are needed?
Generally only one treatment is necessary. However depending on the specific condition, a follow-up treatment may be necessary.
Will the veins come back?
Veins that have been properly treated will not return. However new veins may develop over time and require retreatment. Follow up visits are recommended for “touch ups”.
