Get clear beautiful skin on your face, free of spider veins and broken blood vessels using a relatively simple technology known as Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL. These innovative treatments can do wonders on virtually every skin type. Does your face have unsightly spider veins? Consider getting an IPL treatment to revitalize your skin and make your vascular imperfections simply disappear without the need for surgery and little to no downtime for recovery.
Tiny spider veins on the face are generally caused by a number of factors including sun damage, natural aging, genetics, certain skin conditions like rosacea, or trauma to that particular area. Spider veins on the face can range in size, and though they are often not cause for concern, they can make people feel self-conscious. Consider the following treatments to erase spider veins from your face.
Innovative Laser Treatments
Facial spider veins are treated very effectively with lasers. The sophisticated lasers that we use at Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas are key medical devices that have dramatically changed the way skin issues are now being treated. A laser treatment can greatly help you treat your vascular issues safely and effectively.
Lasers are special light emitting devices that produce a very specific wavelength that directly targets a certain problem or issue. Some vascular lasers are specially designed to only remove spider veins, blood vessels, and red blemishes and won’t cause any negative effects or damage to any other areas of surrounding skin. Simply put, the laser beam hones in on the targeted blood vessels and works to seal them up.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Treatments for Facial Spider Veins
IPL (sometimes also called photo rejuvenation) is a unique device that works to emit multiple wavelengths of light and can therefore treat a wider range of skin problems. An IPL treatment can address different combinations of skin issues versus a laser treatment that can only treat one area of targeted skin at a time.
An IPL device is used often to treat tiny blood vessels and facial redness. While lasers can successfully treat a larger, more ‘thready’ area on the skin, an IPL treatment diminishes the scattered redness in the background. Following an IPL treatment, your skin may be somewhat red for a couple of hours. However, the treatment doesn’t require you to take any time off from your job in order to recover or disrupt your daily routine.
- Both vascular laser treatments and IPL treatments can be combined in order to treat ‘thready’, unsightly spider veins.
- An IPL treatment can lighten up brown spots on the face.
- Both an IPL and vascular laser treatment together can effectively address facial flushing and overall redness.
A Skin Enhancement with No Downtime
An IPL treatment is easy, fast, and effective and can deliver outstanding results without the need to spend time recovering, unlike many other kinds of invasive skin treatments today. Pulses of filtered light target broken blood vessels and erase them near the surface of the skin without affecting the surrounding skin tissue.
