Treatment for Facial & Nasal Spider Veins, Skin Tags, & More

VeinGogh

Vein Specialists offers the unique treatment VeinGogh. The VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System provides a fast, easy way to reliably treat facial and nasal spider veins with less discomfort compared to older therapies. This procedure is an alternative method to older therapies, offering immediate and consistent results. Topical anesthetic is applied to the affected areas to be treated to diminish the discomfort. In addition to facial and nasal spider veins, other vascular lesions such as cherry hemangiomas, strawberry hemangiomas and nonvascular lesions like skin tags can be effectively treated as well.Ohmic thermolysis is ideal for small areas of spider veins while injection sclerotherapy is reserved for larger areas spider veins of the legs. According to the VeinGogh analysis, this microburst technology generates a tiny, regulated, high frequency current 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 quickly absorbed into the body. All this is accomplished without affecting the outer layers of the skin resulting in a quick return to normal daily activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the treatment hurt?

  • On a pain scale of 1-10, with some laser treatments being an 8-9, VeinGogh is a 2-3. Since the procedure uses a hair-thin probe inserted into the vessel, there can be a slight “pinch”. Patients report it feels similar to a hair being removed.

Is there any downtime?

  • The precise nature of VeinGogh treatment limits the risk of over-treating, so there is little to no trauma to the skin. Following treatment, there will be some mild redness that usually lasts about 2-3 hours.

Will the veins come back?

  • Veins that have been properly treated will not return. However, new veins may develop over time and require retreatment. Follow-up visits are recommended.

Does VeinGogh only work on veins?

  • No! VeinGogh can also be used to eliminate cherry angiomas (raised red freckles or moles), small hemangiomas (raised freckle or mole), skin tags, spider nevi (cluster of small veins), and even the redness of rosacea.

When will I see results?

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

    I just had my follow-up ultrasound done on my left leg today. I had the right leg done on Monday of last week. Glad to report no clots in either leg. Clotting is the complication they seemed most concerned about.
    If any of my friends are dealing with the pain and discomfort of varicose veins or just tired of the ugly appearance of bulging veins in your legs. I can highly recommend Dr Magnant and his extremely professional staff.
    I have had visible veins in my right leg since a knee injury when I was a teenager. Over the years it had grown to affect both legs. Likely from always being on my feet for work, and especially because I often had employment that involved a lot of crouching/squatting down. Sometimes until my lower legs fell asleep. I fortunately have always been an active person outside of work and regular exercise kept the pain at bay for many years. But I'm no spring chicken anymore.
    A little over two years ago, my assignment changed at work and I now spend more time at my desk . Within a few months the pain at the end of the day really began bothering me (and I have a very high pain tolerance).
    This was the third specialist I had been to locally in the last two years. I don't want to name the others, however I will say that they all seemed to be rather disorganized for a medical facility, or the staff seemed to be overwhelmed and the diagnostic procedures (ultrasound particularly) done before the actual surgery were not even comparable to the level of care I received from every member of the staff here.
    I am also very fortunate and blessed to have excellent insurance that covered the procedure 100% since my deductible was already met for the year.

    Varicose veins are uncomfortable and all-pervasive - I believe it's estimated that over a third of both women and men in this country suffer from them. I was one of those people. It seems like my whole adult life I avoided wearing shorts. After doing some research online I decided to visit Vein Specialists to take care of my ugly veins. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience. My treatment turned out to be a great success. Now I am back to wearing shorts and feel amazing. I want to thank the Vein Specialists staff and Dr. Magnant for all their help with not only treating my painful leg veins but also for making me feel comfortable and welcomed. The staff is always sweet, friendly and very accommodating. Dr.Magnant is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Dr Magnet and his staff make sure you are comfortable and that you understand everything every step of the way. I wish more of my doctor's visits were as good of an experience as the one I received at the Vein Specialists.
