"My postpartum spider veins weren't so itsy bitsy! After much research and denial, I decided to give sclerotherapy and Mountcastle a try. The office has the ambiance of a "spa" with the professional staff of a medical/dermatological clinic (win-win). Ashley performed the 30min procedure while chatting with me and I was so at ease that I hadn't realized my legs looked like I'd slid into first base with shorts on!!! The post procedure instructions were provided both verbally and in writing. I diligently wore the compression stockings as instructed. I've noticed significant improvement to the worse veins and slight improvement to the least veins. I plan to follow-up for more treatments."- J.J. / Yelp / Apr 26, 2017

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@headingTag>
How Many Treatments Do I Need?@headingTag>
On average, we find that our patients need around 2-3 treatments to have the spider viens fade. However, depending on the specific location and size of the veins more treatments may be necessary.
Will the Veins Return?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
Immediately. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated vessels are reabsorbed.
What Can VeinGogh Treat?@headingTag>
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.
