    Facial Veins

    Facial Vein Treatment | Plastic Surgery | Tuscaloosa Alabama MedSpaSay Good-Bye to Unsightly Facial Veins!

    No matter how much dedication you devote to caring for your skin, vascular imperfections can mar the appearance of your face, and can be very difficult to treat with topical creams and salves. Broken blood vessels and spider veins are very common, and can contribute to the appearance of a blotchy or uneven complexion.

    Causes of Facial Veins

    There are many causes of venous deficiency, which is the technical term for broken vessels or spider veins. As the pressure builds in the veins of your face through various means—including high blood pressure, obesity, lifestyle choices, or inflammation—the appearance of bluish or red veins can cause an unsightly blemish. Fortunately, laser treatments are available to reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and spider veins, leaving your face with a clear, balanced complexion.

    Facial Vein Laser Treatment

    Facial vein laser treatments may be a good option for you if you’re concerned about:

    • Broken capillaries in the mid-face region
    • Damage from rosacea or telangiectasia
    • Spider veins 
    • Small varicose veins
    • Broken blood vessels from a cherry angioma

    Don’t allow your complexion to be needlessly marred by the appearance of veins or broken capillaries! We can help you determine the type of treatment that is best for you.

    How Laser Technology Targets Facial Veins

    Laser technology can be used to effectively treat a number of skin conditions, including the appearance of broken capillaries or other types of facial veins. The light emitted by laser heats up the skin tissue, destroying the unsightly veins below the surface. By targeting the red blood cells which form the basis of vascular lesions, the heat energy is absorbed by the cells, thus causing them to die. The dead venous cells are then painlessly absorbed by the body’s natural cleansing process, leaving a clean, clear appearance in its wake.

    How Many Laser Treatments Will I Need for Facial Veins?

    Your precise treatment plan will depend on the location and severity of the area to be treated, but most patients find that optimal results are attained from a series of treatments spaced roughly one month apart. A personal consultation in our comfortable offices will let you know what to expect in terms of number and frequency of treatments in order to achieve the smooth, clear complexion you’ve been looking for.

    Is Facial Laser Treatment Painful?

    Laser treatments are non-invasive and typically involve a minimum of discomfort, although topical anesthetics may optionally be applied, particularly if the treatment area is large or located in a sensitive region.
