Spider veins are the tiny red and purple lines that appear on the legs of both men and women. By removing them, this treatment by our board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mountcastle, rejuvenates the skin. Patients love this procedure as they no longer have to be self-conscious of their unsightly spider and varicose veins. For additional information, follow the link below.

Surgical Technique


VeinGogh generates a tiny, regulated, high-frequency current called thermic homolysis. 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.

During/After Surgery

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 FAQs

How many VeinGogh vein removal 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 after a VeinGogh vein removal?

Immediately. You will see continuous improvement over several weeks as the treated vessels are reabsorbed.


What Can VeinGogh vein removal 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.
