Not for Facial Veins! - Fresh Meadows, NY

I wanted to treat my many nose and cheek veins and as I got older my rosacea seemed to be getting worst. Everywhere I turned V-beam seemed to be the state of the art. Not far from where I live in Queens NY there is a highly rated clinic so I went there.

8 somewhat painful treatments - no discounts for packages, I was told, its quite bad - you will need 5 or 6 treatments and then we will see @ over $400 a pop (It may have been more)
Each treatment more harsh then the last and each left me with embarrassing purpura that lasted 9 to 13 days each time. The overall Rosacea did get better and the veins got somewhat better as well, but not for long and within a year or so they were back. I was frustrated and I was not about to drop another 4k in this treatment. About a month ago I noticed the nose veins becoming so prominent that even my wife made a comment about the purplish color.

I finally found info on Vein-wave and Vein-goth and was surprised how difficult it was to locate a clinic in the Queens and Nassau area. I didn't want to travel to one in Brooklyn and was about to give up and go to the city when I found North Shore Vein Center in Lake Success by accident. Its about 15 minutes from my home on Queens and it felt like a large Hospital setting when I got there. Much better than the little cramp spots I have seen operating these type of laser or cosmetic businesses.

I filled out 2 short forms, Dr Schwartz came and spoke to me and was somewhat embarrassed to find out that I had 8 or 9 treatments with V-beam less than 2 years ago. He explained to me that he also does Vbeam, but not for my type of condition. He said that Vein Goth will give me the results in one treatment that V beam couldn't give me in 10. I'll write about my positive experience with V goth tomorrow when my redness has gone.

To all the readers with veins on the nose, cheeks or anywhere on the face - please, don't settle for V beam when the superior treatment for immediate results is either Veinwave or VeinGoth. I'll write a review within the next few days with before and after photos. I'll ask the clinic to get me copies of the before photos so i can upload them. All I can say I is that while I'm still a bit red a few hours after it was immediately obvious that the veins were not visible any longer after a 20 minute treatment.

Very Nice Doctor, I can tell he is a wonderful human being but it is a business after all and this is what they claim to be the "state of the art" for these conditions. This is a house that has been converted into a clinic so you will probably miss it if you are driving too fast.
