"Dermatologist referred me, I was VERY nervous about the removal of my cyst. Dr. Mountcastle explained every step before he did anything. While I was waiting for the medicine to numb me a nurse sat in room with me I was talking a mile a minute and told her I talk a lot and am very random when I'm nervous lol, she told me to talk away if helps. The procedure was very quick and painless. Week later stitches out and I couldn't believe how well it looks it honestly and truly doesnt look like I had stitches and it was on my face. I am very pleased. Thank you so much!"- M.S. / Facebook / Feb 10, 2020

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.
