Face Spider Vein Removal
Dilated capillaries are often provoked by sun exposure, pressure, hormonal changes and heredity, to name some common influences. Some individuals develop a red flushed complexion due to over use or abuse of harsh skin care products while others develop red broken capillaries around the nose due to aggressive extraction. Although the exact cause is often unknown, these spider veins can be effectively treated with the appropriate techonology.
Spider veins are thin superficial capillaries most commonly seen on the face. They can appear as red or purple in colour and as strands or clusters. We have 2 great treatments for facial telangiectasia: laser spider vein removal with the Coolglide laser and photorejuvenation.
The Coolglide Laser For Facial Veins
The CoolGlide laser targets only the hemoglobin in the vessel while protecting the surrounding skin by means of a unique integrated contact cooling hand piece. The targeted spider vein is thermally coagulated causing it to collapse and forcing your body to absorb and repair the area. Spider veins on the face and neck are vessels which are no longer useful to the skin.
Photorejuvenation For Superficial Facial Veins
Photo Rejuvenation or photorejuvenation (also known as photofacials) with the LimeLight effectively treats red dyschromia such as facial telangiectasia while improving the skin's texture and tone. The LimeLight Photo rejuvenation system is the first light based, 3 in 1 programmable wavelength device for skin rejuvenation. This programmable wavelength capability allows us to accurately target your skin concern revealing visible results in as little as 1-3 treatments spaced at 4 weeks apart.
