Sclerotherapy, the gold standard in treating spider veins located on the legs, is not generally a good treatment option for facial spider veins, as the risk of skin damage (ulcer, scarring) or damage to surrounding structures (such as the eyes) is too great, we offer the FDA-approved VeinGogh device to eliminate these unwanted veins. VeinGogh delivers outstanding results using proprietary Microburst Technology™, which 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 vein wall, which is quickly absorbed into the body. All of this is accomplished without affecting the outer layers of the skin, resulting in little downtime. VeinGogh works best on spider veins up to 0.3mm, and is not designed to treat feeders or larger vessels deep beneath the surface.
Patients experience only minor discomfort with this treatment. Although many patients only require one treatment, some cases will require additional treatments, as prescribed by Dr. Schwartz.
