Facial, Chest and Hand Vein Treatment

Are You Tired Of Unsightly Facial, Chest and/or Hand Veins?

Spider veins are small blood vessels which can appear almost anywhere on the body, including the face. These tiny, branch-like veins are visible just underneath the skin and tend to be red or blue in color.

Reticular veins are blue veins that are somewhat larger and deeper than spider veins.

Facial veins are not threatening, but they are a nuisance and contribute to an unhealthy appearance.

Blue reticular veins are common on the chest, particularly as we age or following breast augmentation. Although they are harmless, many people wish to have these treated.

Hand veins often become enlarged and bulge as we age. These vein can be significantly reduced with treatment.

What Causes Facial Veins?


Although the exact cause of facial veins is still unknown, there are several factors which seem to increase the risk of developing them:

  • Sun damage
  • Hormonal changes
  • Heredity
  • Age
  • Trauma
  • Being fair-skinned
  • Rosacea
  • Medical conditions, such as lupus


Treatment Options for Facial Veins


Several treatment options are available that can reduce and subdue the appearance of facial veins.

  • PULSED LIGHT REJUVENATION: Dr. Zimmet combines the use of pulsed light with 532 nm and 940 nm wavelengths of light from the Varilite laser to treat broken capillaries and other facial veins. The light is absorbed by the veins generally with little effect on the surrounding skin. In this way, the surrounding healthy skin cells remain intact while the capillary vessels, angiomas, rosacea and tiny spider veins are reduced.
  • Long-pulsed ND:YAG: A laser used to treat reticular veins of the face and other areas.
  • SCLEROTHERAPY: Sclerotherapy is an injection technique often used on spider veins in the legs but which also works on some types of facial veins. The injection causes unwanted veins to shrink and close over a number of weeks.
  • VEIN GOGH: A high frequency current is delivered to the vein via a tiny probe. The “microburst” of energy heats the vein, causing it to collapse and then be absorbed by the body.

Treatment of Chest Veins


Several treatment options are available that can reduce and subdue the appearance of chest veins.

  • SCLEROTHERAPY: Sclerotherapy is an injection technique often used on spider veins in the legs but which also works on reticular veins of the chest and elsewhere. It is quick and easy to tolerate, and causes the veins to shrink gradually over several weeks. Most people need 1-3 treatments done at about 4 week intervals.
  • Long-pulsed ND:YAG: A laser used to treat reticular veins of the chest and other areas.
  • PULSED LIGHT REJUVENATION: Dr. Zimmet combines the use of pulsed light with 532 nm and 940 nm wavelengths of light from the Varilite laser to treat small broken capillaries an sun damage of the chest.
