Veingogh treatment for broken capillaries, spider veins or telangiectases
- Last updated: 1 year ago
I want to post this information because I don't see a lot about the actual results of Veingogh treatment. I'm a 45 year old male with broken capillaries on and around nose, cheeks and forehead. I researched the possible treatments and settled on Veingogh. I found a vein specialist in my area, went to the consultation and made sure he had at least a year of experience and would be the actual person to do the procedure. I had it done yesterday. It was painful but tolerable. It was more painful around the tender areas such as around the eyes and edges of nostrils. Don't let people tell you it's a just a 2 on a scale of 10. More like a 2 up to 7 but really not bad overall. I had a lot of areas of concern so it took about 20 minutes. Also, I'm quite the white guy - Scottish mostly so I have extremely sensitive, fair skin.So 1 hour after, face is pretty swollen and red in areas of treatment. About 4 hours out, it starts to look almost normal and can see it has removed some of the minor capillaries. I went to bed, got up today and the points of insertion of the probe either scabbed or formed white heads. Not every one of them but a lot. Towards midday, the points of insertion have swelled to look like mosquito bites and also have scabs or red points. The doctor told me to expect that which surprised me because nothing I've read online mentioned that. He said that'd go away fairly quickly - very vague. It looks like scratches or road rash. I went out in public but I don't want to see anyone I know to address the questions because it's obvious but not scary.Also, for every vein this long ...... , it requires a point of insertion. So a long one may require several. And a thick one may require several as well regardless of length. Hard to convey what is thick in this post. I'll post again tomorrow to give an update.I'd post pics but really don't want my face on Internet.
