Are you dealing with spider veins that negatively affect your appearance, causing you to have to cover up all of the time? Spider veins are the purple or blue tiny veins that look like spider webs under the skin. They may develop for a number of reasons, as your skin undergoes damage frequently. VeinGogh is a relatively new treatment that can reduce the appearance of or completely remove the veins. The procedure is often recommended for spider veins that are too small to be treated with sclerotherapy, especially on the nose and cheeks.
The VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System delivers a high-frequency electrical current that is regulated by our experienced practitioner via an ultra-thin needle to the vein. Tiny bursts of energy are absorbed by the selected vein, coagulating the blood. This safely collapses the vein wall while redirecting blood flow to a healthier vein. The vein almost instantly disappears. VeinGogh is a precise treatment that has very little or no trauma to the skin.
The treatment involves little to no discomfort. Most people have described the sensation as a hair being plucked. Since there is no special care required after the treatment, you can return to work or other daily activities.
For most cases, one treatment is enough, but a follow-up treatment may be needed. Veins that have been removed cannot reappear. However, new spider veins may form if there is trauma to the skin, sun exposure or other reasons for new ones to form. Fortunately, these can be treated quickly during a new treatment session. You will see positive results after treatment, and as the treated veins are absorbed by the surrounding tissue, improvements will continue for several weeks.
VeinGogh is one of the most commonly used treatments for spider veins because it is safe and effective. With little to no discomfort involved, the spider veins on your face or legs may be immediately removed.
