VeinGogh Thermolysis for Facial Veins and Rosacea
Are you one of millions who suffer from embarrassing spider veins, red spots or redness on your cheeks and nose? Telangectasia is a very common problem that develops from a range of factors, including age, heredity, lifestyle, and diet. VeinGogh is the newest technology available for treating these benign vascular abnormalities.
Facial spider veins range in size from small, wispy red and purple veins to larger blue-green veins. The small veins are commonly seen on the nose, cheeks and chin. The larger veins may be found in the temple area, around the eyes and along the jaw line. These veins typically do not cause pain and are considered cosmetic.
Rosacea begins as flushing and redness on the face, across the cheeks, nose or forehead but can also affect the neck and chest. Other characteristics of rosacea may be dilation of superficial blood vessels on the face with small red bumps.
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 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 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.
When will I see results?
Immediately. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated blood vessels are reabsorbed.
How many treatments are needed?
Generally only one treatment is necessary. However, depending on the specific condition, a follow-up treatment may be necessary. 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 the treatment hurt?
On a pain scale of 1-10, with some laser treatments being a 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,” similar to a hair being removed.
On what size vessels does VeinGogh work best?
VeinGogh works best on spider veins up to 0.3 mm. VeinGogh is not designed to treat large feeder veins or larger vessels beneath the skin’s surface. To effectively treat leg veins, VeinGogh should be used in conjuction with Sclerotherapy.
Does VeinGogh only work on veins?
No! VeinGogh can also be used to eliminate cherry angiomas, small hemangiomas, skin tags, spider nevi, and even the redness of rosecea.
