At the Art of Facial Rejuvenation, we offer a variety of non-surgical procedures designed to rejuvenate the appearance and confidence of all the patients that walk through the door. One complaint that our clients repeatedly bring to our attention is their dissatisfaction with the appearance of their visible blood vessels and capillaries, which is most prevalent along the face and distinct parts of the body throughout the arms and legs. Such aesthetically displeasing veins can be found in both men and women, with nearly 70% of all women and 30% of men developing some type of venous disorder in their lifetime.
These blood vessels can be a result of both genetics and environmental factors. They can be a function of:
These vessels can also take place in a variety of forms such as Telagiectasias, or more commonly referred to as spider veins. These are superficial veins that appear along the areas of the face such as the chin, nose and cheeks. They can appear as distinct branches or spider like paths that are blue or purple in hue and greater than 0.2 millimeters and less than 2 millimeters in width. With the advanced laser technology that we offer at Art of Facial Rejuvenation, our medical professionals can easily eradicate these broken vessels and lesion with a single or multiple laser sessions.
How the laser treatment works in eradicating the broken vessels and capillaries:
Upon your complementary consultation, one of our medical professionals will examine the area of concern and develop the appropriate form of treatment based on the location, degree and rate of growth. Using a hand piece, photons of light are administered to the area through various frequencies of light. The photons of light is then absorbed by the blood in the vein and converted into heat, and the heat consequently destroys the vein walls – without causing damage to the surrounding skin. Through successive treatments, the vessels disappear and your skin appears more rejuvenated in appearance. Smaller areas and thinner vessels may only require one session, while larger, more veiny areas may require successive treatments.
Will the laser treatment hurt?
This form of treatment is generally not associated with the experience of pain. In many cases, a topical anesthesia will be administered to the area to ensure maximum comfort. The laser emissions are safe and FDA approved, and the areas targeted and the dead tissues that result are cleared from the body through the body’s immune system.
What are some potential side effects?
There are generally very little side effects with laser treatment for this type of treatment. However, some individuals may experience some redness, itching and burning post-treatment. Temporary discoloration may appear on the treated area, and can last from 4 to 15 days, depending largely on the location and magnitude of treatment. It is extremely encouraged that all of our patients regularly apply sunscreen to the area to protect it from sun damage.
