Facial Vein Removal | Snellville GA
Have you noticed those little spider veins popping up around your nose or on other areas of the face as you age? Although they may look scary, they are rarely a serious medical concern. Instead of piling on the makeup to cover theses red and purple veins, why not take care of them permanently? Abraham Medical Cosmetics in Snellville, GA (outside of Atlanta) can reduce the appearance of facial spider veins with Syneron® laser technology or IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment. Multiple treatments may be necessary depending on the extent of facial veins.
Laser Vein Removal
Lasers are a fast and effective way to get rid of spider veins. Our Syneron® laser technology targets the vein’s pigment to destroy the unwanted vessel without harming the surrounding skin. Depending on the appearance of your veins, one to three laser vein treatments may be necessary to produce your desired results.
IPL technology is similar to that of laser technology, but instead of only delivering one wavelength of light with each pulse like lasers, IPL delivers multiple wavelengths, penetrating deeper within the skin. IPL reduces the appearance of unwanted facial veins by destroying them beneath the skin’s surface. Most IPL patients achieve desired results after two to four treatment sessions.
Vein Removal FAQ’s
What causes spider veins?
The exact cause of spider veins is debatable, but common causes may include obesity, prolonged standing, trauma to the vein, and pregnancy. Although the cause of your unwanted facial veins may be a mystery, treatment is not.
Does reducing the appearance of my spider veins damage surrounding veins?
Spider veins are damaged veins that do not work. When we reduce the appearance of your spider veins with laser or IPL technology, it actually destroys these useless, ugly veins. Spider vein removal treatment does not harm the healthy, surrounding veins.
Does vein removal treatment hurt?
Most of our laser or IPL vein removal patients describe the sensation they experience during treatment as similar to being snapped with a rubber band. Some patients experience more or less discomfort than others. We provide numbing creams to minimize pain upon the patient’s request.
Will my spider veins return over time?
The spider veins that we remove will not reappear over time, but there is a chance that more spider veins can form.
