Have you tried treatments for your unsightly facial veins in the past that didn’t work? If you have, you may be anxious to find out how facial veins can be treated. Although facial veins are harmless, many people feel self-conscious about them, because they typically appear on the nose, cheeks, and neck.
Spider veins on the face are caused by factors such as genetics, rosacea, acne, or excess sun exposure. Spider veins are thread-like in appearance and typically form in clusters. They are red, purple, or blue in color, and lie close to the surface of the skin.
The pulsed dye laser can easily remove spider veins on the face with minimal discomfort, or downtime.
Pulsed Dye Laser for treating spider veins on the face
The pulsed dye laser is a safe, non-invasive solution for facial veins. The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that targets the hemoglobin in the blood vessel, without damaging the surrounding tissues. The hemoglobin absorbs the energy and the blood vaporizes, causing the vein to collapse. The treated blood vessels are naturally flushed from the body over the following weeks, leaving the skin clear and even-toned.
Pulsed dye treatment takes only a few minutes to perform, but this depends on the extent of the facial veins. There is no downtime after the procedure, so patients can resume their normal activities right away. The pulsed dye laser can be used on all skin types, and is very effective for treating even very small facial veins.
