Questions about the VeinGogh Treatment
VeinGogh is a fairly new type of vein treatment performed by vein doctors using microburst technology to get rid of small spider veins and telangiectasia (a network of veins). It uses the Ohmic Thermolysis System which is an innovative process that collapses damaged veins using heat so they eventually disappear. This treatment also addresses more sensitive facial issues like:
- Skin Tags
- Cherry Angiomas
This special microburst technology gives vascular surgeons greater precision to treat smaller spider veins. Heat damage risk to surrounding vessels and tissue are lowered because of this precision.
When to get the treatment done?
VeinGogh should be used when your veins that need to be treated are too small for procedures like laser ablation or sclerotherapy. It’s not just used for eliminating spider veins; it can be used for other types of skin blemishes as well. The vein doctor might use it alone or combine it with another type of vein treatment so you get optimal results.
How long do treatments Take?
Treatments can be as a short as one minute or as long as 30 minutes or more, depending on the severity and extent of your condition.
Does the treatment hurt?
You might feel a slight ‘pinch’ since it uses a hair-thin probe that the doctor inserts into the vessel. You might equate it to plucking out a hair.
What is the recovery time?
Since the precise nature of this treatment reduces the risk of over-treating, typically there isn’t any trauma to your skin or very little. After you leave the vein treatment center, you can expect some mild redness that will last around a couple hours.
When do results appear?
Results show up right away; as soon as you walk out the vein clinic doors. You will continue to see improvement over the next few weeks as the vessels that were treated are reabsorbed.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, you will need two to three treatments or more depending on the number or severity of your spider veins.
Can the veins come back?
The VeinGogh treatments successfully remove in many cases. You might have to come back for more treatments or for a touch up.
Nobody wants spider veins. They are red and blue squiggly lines that people can see easily with the naked eye. They make you look like you are aging rapidly, and make your skin look fragile and translucent. If you are tired of having spider veins, this procedure just might be the answer.
