Facial Vein Treatment in Atlanta, GA

Vein & Skin Laser Center performs facial vein treatments for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

Facial vein treatment benefits those wishing to regain that soft, youthful appearance.  These veins are usually found on the forehead, nose, cheeks, eyelids, neck, and upper chest. Visible veins are most commonly seen in fair-skinned women but are not limited to this group alone. Blood vessel dilation is due to weakening of the elastic fibers in the walls of the blood vessel and can give an unsightly, aged appearance. Facial vein treatment can restore confidence in women who have developed these unattractive veins and spots on their face, neck or upper chest and feel self-conscious about their appearance. Sun damage and loss of collagen combine to cause veins and age spots to stand out. You can have a youthful looking appearance again! Facial veins can be closed, and hyperpigmentation (age spots) can be erased with IPL® (Intense Pulsed Light) or YAG. Though Dr. Fern will recommend your best course of treatment during your consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes unsightly facial veins?

In most cases, unsightly facial veins are healthy and not diseased. The most typical cause of unwanted facial veins is the thinning of skin and subcutaneous tissue that comes with age. Without that youthful cushioning, the veins begin to appear more obvious.

Is this a permanent solution?

For most, this is a permanent solution. Once the facial veins are closed, it is not likely that they will return.

Is it safe to close off some of the Veins in my Face?

Yes, the procedure is safe. There are many blood vessels in the deeper layers of the face that provide adequate blood flow, while the surface ones do not affect the main blood source. The bulging veins are not required for normal circulation because they are superficial.

Does insurance cover the cost of the procedure?

Because this is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is not normally covered by insurance companies.

What are the side effects and/or risks of treating my facial veins?

Pain associated with this procedure is minimal, if there is any at all. There might be slight swelling, bruising or redness that is usually resolved quickly.

How long does the facial vein treatment last?

Depending on the person, the results from the treatment are usually permanent. This is due to the fact that facial veins do not usually redevelop like varicose veins in the leg.

How can I get rid of these Age Spots?

Hyperpigmentation (age spots) of the face can be eliminated through CO2 Resurfacing. This technology treatment is a  breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as birthmarks, age spots, and other blemishes.

How do I decide which treatment I need for my face: vein removal, dermal filler or photorejuvenation?

Speaking with the specialists at Vein & Skin Laser Center will allow Dr. Fern to evaluate the veins in your face. During this complimentary consultation, a treatment plan will be developed so that you and the doctor can choose the procedure that is best for you.

While cosmetic improvement is often a factor in seeking facial vein treatment, Vein & Skin Laser Center understands that relief from pain is often the primary concern for patients in Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

Our physicians use advanced diagnostic techniques to choose the best non-surgical or minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of facial veins and other venous disorders to ensure that both aesthetic concerns and painful symptoms are addressed simultaneously, effectively and safely.
