What Are Facial and Body Veins?
Visible veins can appear anywhere on the body, but they are most common on the forehead, nose, cheeks, eyelid and upper chest. Although they are not dangerous, they can make you look older and detract from your appearance. They are most visible on fair-skinned women, but anyone can get them.
The cause is two-fold: Blood vessels dilate when the elastic fibers of their walls become weakened, and the skin and subcutaneous tissue thin as you get older, making the dilated blood vessels more prominent.
What Can I Expect From Facial and Body Veins Treatment?
First and foremost, you can expect an improvement in your appearance! We use a Cutera® laser to close off facial and body veins, whether they are small, superficial veins or deeper blue veins. Your particular treatment plan will be based on your unique needs.
Sessions typically last just 10-15 minutes, as the laser quickly works to heat up the blood vessel, damaging the vein. Within a few weeks, the vein will completely disappear. For most patients, the results are permanent.
Is Treating Facial and Body Veins Safe?
Yes! Our team at the Vein Care Center have years of experience using laser treatment for facial and body veins.
Are There Side Effects to Treating Facial and Body Veins?
You may feel a mild stinging sensation during the procedure, but that will be alleviated by a cooling gel we’ll apply before we begin. Afterward, you may experience some slight swelling, bruising or redness at the treatment site, but it should go away in just a few days, revealing clearer, more youthful-looking skin.
How Much Does It Cost To Treat Facial and Body Veins?
Because this type of treatment is not considered medically necessary, it will not be covered by insurance. At the Vein Care Center, we want to make treating facial and body veins accessible for all our patients. We accept cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards. We also have financing options available through CareCredit®.
