Laser Facial Vein Treatments

How do the Facial Vein Laser treatments work?

Fortunately, our advanced Laser technology enables us to safely, easily and effectively treat these Facial Veins & Spider Veins (telangiectasia), and also Capillaries & Skin Redness.

At the Me Clinic we use the following lasers

 

Laser Treatments are the treatment of choice for treating small Facial Veins & Spider Veins on the face and nose. Laser Treatments can also be used on Spider and Small Veins on the legs and body for patients who have not responded to Sclerotherapy and also have light coloured skin.

The Laser light is preferentially absorbed by the red colour in the blood which flows in the veins. This light converts to heat, causing shrinkage of the vein into which the light was directed. No special dressing or stocking is required.

The YAG Laser technology delivers precise dosages of energy to each vein, with minimal risk to the skin. Our YAG Cutera CoolGlide Laser treatment targets the red pigment in red blood cells in your capillaries and blood vessels (spider veins) which are visible on the skin surface. The light emitted from the YAG Laser is absorbed by the red pigment which results in the reduction of the blemishes and marks.

The YAG Laser is also an effective treatment for Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Open Pores, Uneven Skin Texture and Capillaries and Skin Redness using the Laser Genesis treatment.

Facial Veins & Spider Veins can also be effectively treated with our Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments and Aura Laser.

What should you expect after Facial Veins Laser treatment?

Generally after Laser treatment to the face discomfort is minimal. Your post-treatment appearance will vary depending on what type of treatment your Doctor or Cosmetic Physician selects for your condition.

Following any treatment, your skin may feel tender for several days. You should follow your Doctor's instructions, and avoid any harsh skin cleansers and the use of sunscreen is essential. Any scratching or rubbing of the skin should be avoided.

Who can benefit from the Facial Vein Laser treatment?

Patients with fair to olive skin types are suitable candidates for the YAG Laser. Generally patients with dark pigment in their skin are not suitable for this type of treatment.

How many sessions are required?

This depends on the Doctor's diagnosis but we usually recommend 1-3 treatments for the best results. A no obligation consultation with one of our Doctors, Cosmetic Physicians and Clinicians or Aestheticians is essential so your skin and facial veins can be examined and assessed for suitability for Facial Veins Laser treatment.

When will you see results? What you need to do after the treatment to ensure the best result?

With laser treatment the vein is effectively shut down immediately but you will need to wait until any swelling and discolouration has subsided to see the full result. This usually occurs within a few days or immediately depending on the size of the vein treated. More than one session is usually required to eliminate all the offending veins but this depends on the density and extent of the vein problem.
