Spider vein treatment helps clear the skin of spider veins, also known as telangiectasia. These blemishes occur when blood collects in the tiny capillaries just beneath the surface of the skin on the lower legs, thighs, and face, and can resemble spider webs or tree branches. The methods used to treat spider veins – namely ohmic thermolysis, sclerotherapy, and laser treatment – typically involve forcing the affected capillaries to collapse.
The VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System is one of the most effective treatment options for spider vein removal because it can be used on any skin type, causes minimal discomfort, and can treat veins that haven’t responded to laser treatment (applying a laser light to skin to promote vein collapse) or sclerotherapy (injecting a solution into spider veins to force collapse).
VeinGogh treatment involves the following:
- A thin probe is inserted into the affected spider vein
- The probe emits quick bursts of electrical energy, which coagulates the blood
- The vessel walls collapse and are absorbed by nearby soft tissues
