VeinGogh™

The Palisades Vein Center, in New York and New Jersey, offers VeinGogh™. On a pain scale of 1-10, with some laser treatments being an 8-9, VeinGogh™ is a 2-3 for treating spider veins.

VeinGogh™:

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. The precise nature of the VeinGogh™ treatment limits the risk of over-treating, so there is little to no trauma to the skin and no “down-time”. Following treatment, there will be some mild redness that usually lasts about 2-3 hours.

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. 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.
