Spider vein treatment from Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, might inspire you to forego your makeup or don your shorts with confidence. Spider veins are tiny but unsightly clusters of blue, purple, or red capillaries that can form near the surface of the skin as a result of weight fluctuations, hormonal shifts, pregnancy, heredity, or prolonged sitting. A cosmetic problem that occurs most commonly on the face, thighs, calves, and ankles, spider veins can mar the skin’s appearance with short, jagged lines that resemble spider webs.

Large lasers and sclerotherapy often aren’t necessary to eliminate these little vessels. At Bayshore Plastic Surgery, Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald uses the state-of-the-art VeinGogh system for spider vein treatment. A breakthrough in aesthetic medicine, the VeinGogh system utilizes highly controlled micro bursts of high-frequency electrical energy that are directed into the targeted vein through the tip of a hair-thin probe. In response to the application of heat, the blood in the vein instantly coagulates and the vessel walls collapse, leaving the surrounding tissue and outer layers of skin virtually unaffected.

The VeinGogh system is an excellent option for treating spider veins because:

  • The procedure is fast, safe, and effective
  • It can be used on any skin type
  • Patient discomfort is minimal
  • The risk of scarring is very low
  • Results are immediately apparent
