What is VeinGogh Vein Treatment?
Dr. Shaheen utilizes VeinGogh to successfully eliminate unattractive spider veins and skin imperfections for his patients. VeinGogh is an innovative and minimally invasive treatment used to eliminate small spider veins and networks of veins known as telangiectasia.
VeinGogh treatment uses a relatively new process called the Ohmic Thermolysis System, which focuses micro-bursts of heat on a collapsed or damaged vein causing it to from view.
The innovative technology allows Dr. Shaheen to target spider veins with exact precision, which in turn minimizes the risk of heat damage to the surrounding tissue and vessels. VeinGogh can also be used to effectively treat conditions like rosacea, skin tags and cherry angiomas in sensitive areas like the face.
The VeinGogh procedure causes little to no discomfort or downtime. The heat that is administered to the affected vessel is distributed using a fiber that is approximately the width of a human hair. The VeinGogh procedure is safe to use on all skin types and only takes a few minutes to complete.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for VeinGogh?
VeinGogh is an effective option for anyone with small veins and lesions. The VeinGogh procedure is ideal for candidates who have spider veins that are too small to be treated with sclerotherapy or laser ablation. It can additionally be used to safely treat other skin imperfections such as rosacea, skin tags, spider nevi, and cherry angiomas.
How does the VeinGogh Procedure work?
Using a small stylus, a hair-like fiber is inserted into the vein that is being treated. Once the fiber locates the vein, the fiber delivers a micro-burst of controlled heat energy which damages the vein walls causing the vein to seal shut and eventually collapse completely. Over time the vein is reabsorbed by the body and blood is rerouted through other healthy veins nearby.
Some patients will achieve desired results in as little as one treatment, however, most patients require additional treatment, typically 2-3 sessions, to achieve their desired results.
Once eliminated, the spider vein is gone forever. However, this does not stop new veins from developing over time, which could require additional treatment or follow-ups.
