"I was so impressed with Dr. Mountcastle and his staff. I was nervous when I arrived but quickly relaxed. It was a new experience for me to have a cyst removed which was a weird sensation since it was on my face. I appreciated the doctor asking me every once in a while if I was okay. I didn't experience any discomfort during the procedure. I am so glad that my dermatologist recommended him. I would highly recommend Dr. Mountcastle!"- T.C. / Yelp / Jul 19, 2019

VeinGogh generates a tiny, regulated, high-frequency current called thermic omolysis. The current is delivered to the vessel via a hair-thin probe. There is a microburst of energy that selectively heats the vein, coagulating the blood and collapsing the vessel wall, which is quickly absorbed into the body.
Since the procedure uses a micro-thin hair like probe that is inserted into the vein, there can be a slight "pinching." Patients have likened it to pulling a piece of hair or being snapped by a rubber band. The treatment length depends on the amount of surface area treated. For a nose to be treated with VeinGogh it might take 30 seconds to a few minutes to treat the tiny spider veins. For a full face or legs, it might take 30-45 minutes. Following the treatment, there will be some mild redness that usually lasts 2-3 hours.

VeinGogh Vein Removal FAQ
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
On average, we find that our patients need around 2-3 treatments to have the spider veins fade. However, depending on the specific location and size of the veins more treatments may be necessary.
Will the Veins Return?
Veins that have been properly treated will not return, in our experience. However, new veins may develop over time and require treatment with the VeinGogh. Follow-up visits are recommended for "touch-ups."
When Will I See Results?
Immediately. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated vessels are reabsorbed.
What Can VeinGogh Treat?
VeinGogh can be utilized to eliminate cherry angiomas, small hemangiomas, spider nevi, and even rosacea. VeinGogh works best on spider veins 0.3mm or smaller, typically the small red veins. VeinGogh is not designed to treat feeders or larger vessels deep beneath the surface, ie the larger blue veins. To effectively treat leg veins, VeinGogh should be used in conjunction with Sclerotherapy.
