Our brand new VeinGogh device works by delivering a tiny high frequency current via a thin probe. This “microburst” of energy heats the vein, coagulates the blood, and causes the vessel wall to collapse. VeinGogh can treat very small spider veins on the legs, arms, face and feet.
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,
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.
IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME?
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 2-3 hours.
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 it feels similar to a hair being removed.
HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL TREATMENT?
Depending mainly 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 a more extensive condition covering
much of the face or legs.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
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.
DOES VEINGOGH ONLY WORK ON VEINS?
No! VeinGogh can also be used to eliminate cherry angiomas, small hemangiomas, skin tags,
spider nevi, cystic acne and even the redness of rosacea.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Immediately. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated vessels
ON WHAT SIZE VESSELS DOES VEINGOGH WORK BEST?
VeinGogh works best on spider veins up to 0.3mm. VeinGogh is not designed to treat feeders
or larger vessels deep beneath the surface. To effectively treat leg veins, VeinGogh should be
used in conjunction with sclerotherapy.
