If you are dealing with the presence of facial veins that are visible through your skin, you may have thought long and hard about methods to remove them. If this applies to you, there is good news available. There are facial vein treatments that we can utilize to improve your appearance. In addition, these methods can be employed without the need for downtime on your part. In fact, you should be able to return to your normal schedule right away.
The most common cause of visible facial veins is a condition known as spider veins. They develop when the smaller vessels are not functioning as they should and either break or become enlarged. When this happens, they can be seen through the skin and appear blue, red or purple. They also will look like lines that are intertwined together and dart out in all directions. Consequently, they can remind you of a spider’s web or legs.
If there is any good news associated with the development of spider veins it is that they seldom produce any physical discomforts or symptoms. Except in rare instances, their impact is one of appearance only. This, however, can be enough to negatively impact the self-esteem of many people. If you are one of them, you should have a discussion with our team about the available facial vein treatments by which these veins can be eliminated.
Laser-based facial vein treatments are very popular. Lasers are highly concentrated beams of light that are directed to the vessels that are targeted for removal. As the veins absorb the laser energy, the heat that is created during the process will safely destroy the veins. The tissue that is left will begin to disappear as the body absorbs it.
When lasers are used to treat facial veins, equipment is used that is designed to focus the energy on the veins without destroying the skin on the surface. For this reason, you will not need a downtime recovery period. You can resume your normal life immediately. The treatment is done in the comfort of our office.
