With the advent of better medical technology, various doctors are striving to provide a wide range of effective, minimally invasive treatment options for a variety of medical conditions.
Spider veins plague millions of people every year, and these people often require a treatment option with a short or nonexistent recovery period while still being highly effective.
VeinGogh™ is meeting those needs of patients across the country, and it’s becoming a go-to treatment option for many doctors.
What is VeinGogh™?
VeinGogh™ is used primarily to eliminate pesky spider veins. It uses a unique heating system that collapses the vein and makes it disappear from view.
This system gives doctors a lot more precision, so they can target smaller spider veins that wouldn’t respond to typical sclerotherapy.
Precision-based technology reduces secondary damage to surrounding tissues and vessels, too, which is why it’s utilized for helping reduce rosacea and cherry angiomas on the face.
How Does the Procedure Work?
VeinGogh™ is quick and simple, and patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure. It’s an outpatient procedure, so you can visit our doctor for a quick trip and then go right back to work or your regular activities immediately.
The VeinGogh™ tool consists of a small stylus with a very fine fiber that’s inserted into the offending vein. Once the fiber is in the vein, it releases microbursts of heat and energy into the vein.
The heat affects the wall of the vein, causing it to close and collapse. The body then reabsorbs the vein with no side effects.
The actual procedure takes just a few minutes, so how long your treatment lasts depends on how many veins you’re treating.
How Long is the Recovery?
There is almost no recovery period with the VeinGogh™ procedure. There is sometimes a little bit of redness or swelling around the treated sites, but it’s completely manageable and doesn’t affect your ability to go about your regular activities.
When Will You See Results?
Small but visible results appear almost immediately, but results will improve over time. The total time it takes to get the desired results depends on your body and how long the vein takes to collapse and disappear.
Typically, once the vein is treated, it will disappear permanently because it’s absorbed by the body and those tissues are gone completely.
