Are You Tired of Unsightly Facial 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. Facial veins are not threatening, but they are a nuisance and contribute to an unhealthy appearance.
- Sun damage
- Hormonal changes
- Being fair-skinned
- Medical conditions, such as lupus
- PULSED LIGHT REJUVENATION: Dr. Zimmet combines the use of pulsed light with 1-2 other wavelengths of light from the Varilite laser to remove superficial veins on the cheeks, chin and nose. 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.
- 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.
