Visible veins are not typically a severe medical concern, but they can be a significant cosmetic nuisance. Veins that appear on the face could be due to a variety of factors, including sun exposure, skin trauma, conditions like rosacea, and the aging process.

Facial veins are usually treated with a laser device like the CoolTouch Varia. This device targets the blood inside the veins to coagulate the vessel and eliminate it. In some cases, an injectable treatment known as sclerotherapy might also be recommended.

Leg veins are often caused by a vascular condition known as chronic venous insufficiency or CVI. CVI occurs when tiny valves inside the vein become damaged over time. These valves usually are responsible for keeping blood flowing in a single direction back to the heart. When they don’t work correctly, blood can start to pool in the veins, leading to swelling and the formation of varicose veins.

We have numerous options for treating leg veins, including sclerotherapy and phlebectomy. We also use the CoolTouch CTEV, which ablates veins from the inside out painlessly and with little downtime afterward. Our skin experts also have expertise in vein treatments so that we can customize your procedure to your precise needs for the best possible results.
