Many veins, blood vessels and capillaries are necessary to deliver blood and oxygen to the variety of muscles in our face. However, with age, our skin loses collagen and the outer layers become thinner, resulting in more transparency. Constant exposure to sun, and regular wear and tear can rupture these small capillaries, sometimes leaving behind prominent red marks.
Telangiectasias (small dilated blood vessels) or facial veins can appear just beneath the surface of the face. These pesky veins can come in red or blue and typically appear around the nose and cheek area.
So how can you get rid of these unsightly facial veins?
At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we have a variety of laser treatments to safely, easily and effectively treat facial veins. Laser treatments can help improve the look or completely erase these stubborn cosmetic annoyances. Precise dosages of energy are delivered to each vein, with minimal risk to the surrounding skin. The laser treatment delivers light energy and targets the vein. The blood vessels then absorb the light energy. This, along with the heat, causes the blood vessel to clog and is slowly absorbed by the body.
Here at our San Diego medical dermatology offices, we have many different lasers that can help improve or eliminate facial veins with little to no pain at all. Contact us today so we can assess which treatment would work best for your particular situation!
