What causes spider veins in the face?
Facial spider veins can develop in anyone at any age. However, some people are more predisposed to developing facial spider veins due to a variety of reasons, including:
- Sun exposure
- Changes in weather
- Changes in pressure
- Environmental irritants
- Alcohol consumption
How to get rid of spider veins on face?
Laser vein therapy in New York can be one of the most effective spider vein treatment options for a variety of patients. It may also be a better option for veins that are fine or small, such as those that appear on the face.
Examples of lasers for facial spider veins are:
Excel V Laser
The Excel V system features a broad set of capabilities for treating superficial and deep vascular conditions. It precisely treats facial veins by targeting the blood to coagulate the vessel, which then collapses. The body then reabsorbs the treated vein over time, giving you clearer and healthier-looking skin.
In addition to laser treatments for scars on the face, some modalities can target melasma and smooth the complexion. Some lasers are effective for the treatment of acne, broken capillaries, and rosacea. Others target hair follicles to help stop excessive growth.
Lasers are effective skin-tightening treatments too. These treatments work deep in the dermal layers to promote changes to the skin at a cellular level, addressing issues like skin laxity. When collagen is restored, the skin appears firmer and more youthful.
With many devices and technologies available, dermatologists can customize the best treatment plan to help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals.
Vbeam Perfecta and Prima
Vbeam Perfecta is a pulsed-dye laser that offers superior results when treating visible facial veins and vascular lesions. Its intense but gentle bursts of light destroy blood vessels, which are reabsorbed by the body. This pulsed-dye laser offers a dramatic improvement in the treatment of blood vessels with the ability to target the blood inside the vein without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue. The result is a reduction of visible veins, achieving clearer and a more rejuvenated complexion.
Vbeam Prima® is a highly efficient pulsed-dye laser that concentrates beams of light to deeper layers of the skin. The light is converted to heat, which is absorbed by blood vessels on the skin. Damaged blood vessels are then reabsorbed by the body to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial veins.
DermaV targets pigment and unwanted blood vessels on the face and body. Its 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths are ideal for treating red and brown pigments.
Broadband Light Therapy
Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) gently heats the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas triggers cellular regeneration and produces clearer, smoother, more youthful skin.
A pulsed dye laser works by targeting the blood beneath the skin’s surface. The laser energy goes directly into vessels or lesions, leaving surrounding skin and tissue untouched.
