Facial Vein Removal

What is it?
Facial veins, hemangiomas, cherry and spider angiomas are all vascular disorders which cause red discolorations of the skin. These blood vessel changes are usually of no medical consequence, but are cosmetically troublesome for some people. Tiny broken veins may be part of the normal aging process, sun-induced, or a result of heredity, medication, or as part of the skin condition known as rosacea.
How does it work?
Using Coherent’s VersaPulse® laser, we can eliminate the veins causing these red and discoloured areas. When facial veins are treated with a laser, the laser light passes harmlessly through the top layer of skin and is absorbed into the blood cells below. When the laser energy is absorbed into the targeted red blood cells, it causes shrinkage and coagulation of the vessels. This leaves the vessel walls unsupported, causing them to collapse. During the healing process, the blood vessels dissolve and are harmlessly absorbed by the body.
How much does it cost?
Treatments begin at $200 per session.
Will I need multiple treatments?
The number of treatment sessions depends on the size, location and depth of the veins. Usually two or three treatments are needed, 4-6 weeks apart. During your consultation we will be able to design a treatment plan specific to your individual skin condition(s).
Who does the treatment?
The treatment is performed by one of our professionally trained Medical Estheticians.
How long does it take?
Treatments usually take around 30 minutes.
Is there any downtime or pain?
Following each session, the treated area will have some redness and localized swelling. Depending upon the size of the area treated, this will resolve in one-three days. Ice packs are used to help relieve any discomfort. Potential side effects with the VersaPulse® are rare and include: blistering, crusting, scabbing, scarring an hypo/hyperpigmentation (lightening or darkening) of the skin. You may apply makeup immediately following the procedure. Everyone is required to avoid direct sun exposure to the area and wear a sunblock of at least SPF 45 for two weeks following each session.
