Facial Veins Can Be Erased

When people think of vein treatment, they usually think of legs. But at Vein and Skin Laser Center  we treat diseased veins on the face as well as the legs.  Do you see any small red lines on your face?  That could be a broken vein that can be treated easily and quickly.

Diseased veins comes in all sizes and shapes. Smaller veins and spider veins are mostly treated using sclerotherapy.  The smaller the vein the more difficult it is to treat with sclerotherapy;  in those cases we depend on skin lasers for effective treatment.

How does a laser work?  Laser energy works by heating the blood in the small veins and causing the vein wall to degenerate and disappear.  You can actually see the vein disappear at the time of treatment.  That is usually an exciting thing for our patients to witness.

The NdYag laser is highly effective at treating smaller spider veins on both the face and legs.  In fact it’s the method of choice for facial veins because of  its high effectiveness.  Facial  veins are under low pressure and respond better to  heat  treatment delivered by  lasers.

Immediate gratification is not always possible in the medical arena. That’s why it is so gratifying when it does occur. Treating facial veins is one of those times .    Add to the experience the fact that  there is minimal pain associated with the treatment,  it makes for a happy patient…and surgeon!
