What Are Facial Veins?
We feel for our patients who don’t like their facial veins, and we help get rid of them. Facial veins are dilated blood vessels caused by age-related weakening of the elastic fibers within the blood vessel walls. Trauma to the skin may also lead to the appearance of these veins; this trauma can be as minor as picking at blemishes or using water that is too hot. Close up, these veins are usually very thin, the width of just a single hair; however, they can also be large and blue, the diameter of a thread. Though painless, even tiny veins degrade one’s appearance, giving an overall red, flushed effect. Essentially, with facial veins, skin looks older, redder and more exhausted. Makeup is needed to mask them, and often even the thickest concealers and foundations are no match for them. This prompts many people to seek vein removal, which we can do for you at Beaumont Aesthetic and Laser.
Laser Treatment for Veins
Laser treatments are an innovative, nonsurgical solution for facial veins. This effective approach is remarkably powerful at removing facial veins completely. A single treatment with our ICON laser can be done in about 15 minutes.
How Does Vein Treatment Work?
Lasers are high-tech, light-emitting devices that target several skin concerns simultaneously. Our ICON laser’s light penetrates the dermis’s deepest layers without damaging the surrounding skin. A highly-focused laser beam seeks the blood vessel with extreme precision. The blood absorbs the energy from the laser, which shuts down the vein. Then, over the next several weeks, the veins are absorbed by the body and disappear.
How Many Laser Treatments Are Needed to Remove Facial Veins?
The total number of laser sessions required can vary. This depends on your total number of veins, their severity and other factors. In general, 1-3 laser treatments will give the best results.* These should be performed once a month (every four weeks) though you’ll be given an individualized protocol at Beaumont Aesthetics and Laser when you visit with us.
