laser face vein therapy
Telangiectasias, commonly referred to as face veins, are visible, widened blood vessels (broken capillaries) seen on the cheeks, nose, and creases of the nose. They typically form in clusters in a weblike pattern.
Laser therapy delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is subsequently reabsorbed by the body. Blood is then redirected to vessels located deeper below the skin’s surface.
This highly successful treatment usually requires 1 to 2 sessions to clear all of the vessels. It is important to note that some people are prone to developing these, and ongoing treatment of newly formed broken vessels is likely.
