Who is a Good Candidate?

You may benefit from vein treatment if you want to:

  • Remove spider veins (telangiectasias) in areas of the body such as your legs
  • Diminish redness on your cheeks
  • Correct tiny, visible veins on your nose, upper eyelids, and other facial region

Your Procedure

The newest technology available for treating these benign vascular abnormalities, the VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System generates a tiny, regulated, high frequency current that is 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 then quickly absorbed into the body. This procedure does not affect the outer layers of the skin, and no topical anesthesia is necessary.

Depending on the size of the targeted area, the treatments can range from about a minute for minor lesions to 20 to 30 minutes for more extensive conditions covering much of the face or legs. For larger "spider veins" in the legs, sclerotherapy may be an option. Dr. Cutolo will discuss these options with you. In most cases in the legs, both VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis and sclerotherapy can be combined to yield the best results!

Recovery

Most patients return to their regular routines immediately after the procedure. There may be mild redness that usually lasts about 1 to 2 hours.

As the treated vessels are absorbed by the body, the regions treated continuously improve over the weeks following treatment. Generally, only one treatment is necessary. However, depending on the specific condition, a follow up treatment may be necessary.

Results and Benefits

After vein treatment, New York City and Staten Island patients typically are impressed with how much clearer their skin appears. In addition to correcting red spots and spider veins, VeinGogh can be used to clear stubborn vessels that were left after unsuccessful treatments with other modalities, such as laser therapy.
