Laser Treatments for Facial Veins

Woman with beautiful skin without facial veinsMuch like spider veins on the legs, visible facial veins can create a host of insecurities and annoyances. Facial veins are caused by broken capillaries under the skin that typically appear around the nose, under the eyes, or on the cheeks. The blood vessels in the face are incredibly delicate and can be affected by anything from genetics to sun damage, or from alcohol and cigarette use to a deficiency in blood flow. And while these veins present no physical threat, their appearance can be embarrassing and frustrating. Although skin creams claim to counteract the appearance of facial veins, laser treatments are much more effective and allow to not only manage and lessen these unwanted marks, but they also refresh your skin for a more youthful and revitalized appearance.

Your Treatment Options

excel V™ by CUTERA®

The excel V™ by CUTERA® is a precision, high-powered green laser that can efficiently and effectively treat broken capillaries, visible vessels, and other skin discoloration. In this comfortable, 30-minute treatment, the damaged blood vessels absorb the administered laser light, which swiftly heats and destroys the vessels. The applied laser energy penetrates deep into the dermal layers to stimulate collagen production for further skin improvement. After the treatment, facial veins will gradually diminish and your skin tone will even out. This procedure requires minimal downtime with some slight redness and swelling, which will go down in one to three days post treatments.

IPL/Photofacial

Intense pulsed light (IPL), also known as a photofacial, can also be used to treat unsightly facial veins as well as other skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and the visible signs of aging. This procedure is non-invasive and non-ablative, offering noticeable results with minimal discomfort or downtime. During this treatment, light pulses target the treatment area to destroy the pigment without damaging the surrounding skin and tissues, leaving your skin looking refreshed, smooth, and youthful.

Facial Vein Treatment

Offered at The Spa at Spring Ridge, facial vein treatments are customized to your needs and can drastically improve the appearance of facial veins in as little as one to three short, 30-minute treatments. This treatment leaves you with blemish- and vein-free skin.

Reveal Your Confidence

Having facial veins below your eyes, on your cheeks, or around your nose may damage your self-confidence and make you insecure about your appearance. With laser treatments for facial veins, you won’t need to hide under heavy layers of makeup anymore. Improve both your skin and confidence with laser skin treatments.
