Visible facial veins are actually dilated blood vessels due to the weakening of the elastic fibres in the walls of the blood vessel. The exact causes are unclear however, certain factors contribute to their development including heredity, sun damage, pregnancy, hormonal factors, weight gain, occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing, and trauma.
How does the laser help?
The Laser used produces an intense burst of light/Heat that selectively destroys the blood vessels of your veins, without damaging the surrounding tissue. After treatment, the vessels slowly and naturally disappear.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser treatments are typically done at 3 to 4 week intervals. Depending on your skin type, size of the vein and how your vessels react, several treatments may be required. Smaller veins respond more quickly to treatment. Most clients will require 1 to 4 treatments.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, in most cases the vascular lesions are permanently removed however, in some cases you may require additional treatments to maintain results.
