The VeinGogh is a revolutionary medical technology that uses radio frequency to eliminate spider veins without affecting the surrounding tissues. Energy is released into the veins, where it has a heating effect that causes the vessel wall to collapse. VeinGogh’s precision laser technology makes it capable of pinpointing even the smallest veins, including those on the face, legs and other areas of the body.
Did you know…
that VeinGogh can be used in conjunction with other vein treatments like sclerotherapy? When performed correctly, most patients see an immediate reduction in the appearance of varicose and spider veins, as well as continued improvements for several weeks following treatment. In most cases, no additional treatments are necessary after undergoing VeinGogh treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for vein treatment using VeinGogh?
You may be a candidate for VeinGogh vein treatment if you wish to diminish the appearance of spider veins on your face, body or legs. This treatment is typically recommended for veins exceeding no more than 0.3mm in diameter. Only your doctor can determine if this procedure is right for you, so contact our office to schedule a consultation or request further information.
What should I expect during a VeinGogh treatment?
Your doctor will cleanse the skin over the treatment site before inserting a tiny probe into the affected vein. A high frequency heats the vein within, causing it to become irritated and collapse. You may experience only minimal discomfort during the procedure, often described as a slight ‘pinching’ sensation. Most patients find it quite tolerable with no anesthesia required. Depending on the size and extent of the veins being treated, your VeinGogh session may last only a few minutes in your doctor’s office.
Will I experience any downtime after treatment?
You should not experience any damage to your skin tissues near the treatment site. However, it is normal to have some redness for a few hours after the procedure. Results should be visible immediately after the procedure and continue to improve over the course of several weeks. It is normal to see a clearing of vessels that other vein treatments left behind.
