We offer comprehensive treatments for varicose veins and spider veins. Scroll down to see some of our answers to commonly asked questions and get the information you need on different vein therapies we offer:
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 selectively heats the vein, coagulates the blood and collapses the vessel wall, which is quickly absorbed into the body. All of this is accomplished without affecting the outer layers of the skin resulting in a quick return to normal daily activities. Treatment is often provided in conjunction with sclerotherapy for optimal results.
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 upon 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 more extensive treatments throughout the face or legs.
When will I see results?
Immediately. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated vessels are reabsorbed.
How many treatments are needed?
Treatment varies based on number and size of veins being assessed. Our team will help to determine what the best course of action will be for you.
Will the veins come back?
Veins that have been properly treated will not return. However, new veins may develop over time and require treatment. Follow-up visits are recommended for “touch-ups.”
Does 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 it feels similar to a hair being removed.
On what size vessels does VeinGogh work best?
VeinGoghTM works best on spider veins up to 0.3 mm. VeinGogh™ is not designed to treat feeder veins or larger vessels deep beneath the surface. To effectively treat larger veins, VeinGogh™ should be used in conjunction with sclerotherapy.
Does VeinGogh only work on veins?
No! VeinGogh™ can also be used to eliminate cherry angiomas, small hemangiomas, spider nevi, and even the redness of rosacea.
