Facial Spider Vein Removal
Facial veins are enlarged blood vessels that can be caused by aging, pregnancy, or oral contraceptives; also by sun exposure, extremes of temperature, and alcohol use over time.
How does facial vein removal treatment work?
A laser generates an intense beam of light that can selectively target a treatment site. During treatment, the laser light is absorbed into the blood cells; this causes the blood to coagulate. Once this happens, the blood vessel walls are unsupported and they will collapse spontaneously.
As you’re healing from facial vein treatment, the blood vessels ultimately dissolve and are eliminated. Laser removal of veins is painless, leaves no bruises, and is a highly effective treatment that’s popular with our patients.
Most small to medium facial veins can be treated with great effectiveness, minimum discomfort, and no side effects.
What results can you expect?
Laser treatment of facial veins can eventually eliminate most of these unsightly facial blood vessels; you can leave the clinic after you are treated and return to work without bruises.
During your treatment, you will experience a very brief snapping sensation rather like being snapped with a rubber band. Laser treatment of facial veins does not require you to take pain medication or receive local anesthetic.
Right after your treatment, the veins treated may appear temporarily darker but the color will fade over the next 6 weeks. You may expect to enjoy up to an 80% improvement in facial veins after laser treatment.
Several treatments at intervals may be necessary to eliminate all facial veins.
