What does Laser Vein Therapy do?
Laser Vein Therapy is a non-ablative procedure that can reduce visible facial vessels as well as diffuse redness by gently warming the upper dermis, improving the appearance of your skin. The result is a healthy looking and vibrant appearance.

What are facial vessels or telangiectasia?
Telangiectasia or facial vessels are dilated capillaries that commonly appear on the surface of the l and in areas around the nose, cheeks and above the neckline. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that are present throughout the body. Prolonged sun exposure, aging, trauma and other factors can cause capillaries to become dilated and visible. There is also a hereditary factor in developing facial telangiectasia. Laser Vein therapy will help your appearance by treating any visible trace of these unsightly veins.
What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. As with facial telangiectasia, this condition is a result of dilated capillaries, however the appearance is more general redness rather than discrete well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Vein therapy will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
What can I expect before the treatment?
There are no complicated pretreatment rituals with this procedure, prior to the actual Laser Vein treatment you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers and in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated so as not to interfere with the laser treatment. We will review and assist with all pretreatment requirements.
How many treatments do I need?
The treatment results are often very subtle. On average you may require 4 to 6 treatments in order to achieve the result you are looking for. Every patient’s conditions and needs vary. You will receive more information about your expected results or number of treatments necessary during your consultation.
Is the treatment painful?
No. Laser Vein therapy is a comfortable, non-ablative, non-invasive treatment. Unlike other laser treatments it does not wound the skin’s surface therefore virtually eliminating the need complicated post treatment care. Typically patients describe the treatment as a gentle warming of the surface. The treatment does not require any anesthetics, creams or gel.
What results to expect after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you will experience some minor redness. The redness typically lasts only a few hours. Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic with visible results that are subtle yet noticeable. You can expect to immediately return to normal activities utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
What are the possible side effects?
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most commonly noticed might be a slight redness that disappears within a few hours after the treatment. We will discuss the benefits and risks of treatment during your consultation.
