Facial Vein & Rosacea Treatment
Facial Spider Veins are small dialated blood vessels that appear right under the skin around the nose as well as on the cheeks and chin. These veins take the form of small individual lines, or sometimes in larger clusters. These superficial veins are typically caused by aging, genetics, sun exposure or Rosacea.
Rosacea is a common, chronic skin condition that causes redness, flushing, spider veins, and acne like symptoms on the cheeks and nose, but can also appear on the chin and forehead. It is more common in people with fair skin and can be hereditary. While there is no cure for Rosacea it can be managed with laser treatments, facial treatments and medical grade skin care products.
Both facial spider veins and Rosacea can be treated with the V-Beam laser, which is often referred to as a vascular laser because it is excellent at treating redness in the skin. The V-beam is one of the safest lasers used today. Redness, swelling and bruising are the most common side effect of treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
While some veins will disappear after one treatment, it can take multiple treatments done one month apart.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER TREATMENT?
There is generally some redness and swelling that can last a few hours to a few days. Bruising can also occur depending on the laser settings used for your treatment and can take several days dissipate.
