How to treat facial veins with laser therapy

If you suffer from facial veins you are probably want to know how best to treat them. Facial veins also known as spider veins or broken capillaries, can be very unsightly and annoying, and are often an inevitable result of the aging process. These veins generally appear on the cheeks, nose, and chin.

Spider veins

Spider veins are known medically as telangiectasia. They are tiny blood vessels that lie close to the surface of the skin, and are usually red or blue in color.  Although the precise cause is not known, they generally develop as you age, and may also be due to hormonal influences and environmental factors.

How are spider veins treated?
Laser therapy is now widely used for the treatment of spider veins. There are several types of lasers used, but the pulsed dye laser and the YAG laser are among the most effective.

At the Skin Center in Chicago IL, they use the Vbeam Perfecta laser to treat spider veins.

Vbeam Perfecta Laser

The Vbeam Perfecta laser is a powerful laser that is very effective in treating conditions such as facial veins, rosacea, scars, and post-acne redness.  The Vbeam utilizes advanced pulsed dye technology to deliver an intense burst of light, which destroys the spider veins without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Most patients notice a significant improvement after just one treatment, but up to 3 treatments may be required, depending on the number of veins being treated.

There is no recovery time, therefore patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
