Ellipse Laser Vein Removal Gets Rid of Red Facial Veins
While facial veins are seldom a medical issue, they may have a range of negative consequences on one’s quality of life, ranging from minor irritation to a loss of self-confidence. And these bothersome red facial veins, often known as “spider veins,” can compromise a person’s self-esteem at any age.
Red facial veins, medically known as telangiectasia, affect both men and women. They are caused by a number of factors including genetics, age, sun exposure, smoking and more. Unfortunately, even with a lot of makeup, red facial spider veins on the face (also known as broken veins) are often difficult for a woman to hide. And since men don’t typically apply foundation or concealer, there is virtually nothing they can do to cover this unsightly redness.
The good news is that AMAE Med Spa the in Troy, MI area provides a safe, effective, and inexpensive laser vein treatment that can permanently remove red spider veins from your face.
In this post, we’ll talk about the causes of facial spider veins, as well as explain the best ways to get rid of them once and for all!
Red Facial Spider Veins: What Causes Them?
The formation of red facial veins is mostly determined by genetics. Spider veins are more likely to develop in those who have a family history of them. It can be quite daunting to look in the mirror and see those little red spider webs that your grandfather had on his face starting to appear on yours!
Another frequent cause of spider veins is pregnancy. The increased amount of blood in the body while pregnant puts considerable strain on the blood vessels, causing even tiny veins to enlarge and burst. Facial spider veins may also develop as a consequence of the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. While pregnancy spider veins usually disappear soon after giving birth, some women are left with a visible network of red spider veins long after delivery.
Sun exposure may also create facial spider veins by causing blood vessels to enlarge and draw closer to the surface of the skin. UV exposure can break down the body’s collagen, making the skin lose elasticity, allowing the spider veins to emerge.
Spider veins may develop as a consequence of a sudden, significant change in pressure inside the body. A forceful sneeze, prolonged coughing, or violent vomiting can causes blood vessels to burst, resulting in spider veins in the face and elsewhere.
When individuals drink alcohol, their blood vessels dilate. However, excessive alcohol use may induce these dilated blood vessels to completely burst, resulting in spider veins that are permanently visible on the face.
Rosacea is a somewhat common skin disorder in which swollen veins cause pale skin to flush and become red. Spider veins are common in people who have rosacea.
How Does Laser Vein Removal Work on the Face?
We offer revolutionary Ellipse laser vein removal at AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area. Ellipse safely removes spider veins on the face that uses a mix of cold and heat radiation.
The Ellipse vein removal system is unique in that it filters light two ways and allows only the correct wavelengths of light to reach the patient’s skin and find the hemoglobin in the blood.
The blood in the vessels absorbs the light and creates a heat reaction that causes the blood to coagulate and break down protein in the vessel wall. This causes the spider vein to dissolve. As the spider veins are absorbed by the body, they eventually fade away. They will be flushed out of the system by the natural waste disposal process.
In most cases, the whole laser vein treatment takes less than an hour. The patient wears opaque safety goggles to shield his eyes from the powerful laser beam.
Unlike other laser vein removal systems, the Ellipse laser has a cooling system that prevents any discomfort sensation of burning. Most patients only feel a little tingling sensation as the laser files. A topical anesthetic (numbing cream) may also be used to make you feel even more comfortable and at ease.
Laser Facial Vein Removal Results
Within two to six weeks after laser spider vein removal treatment, the veins under the skin change color and eventually disappear. The veins are sometimes initially a bit redder after the procedure than they were before treatment as they break down, are absorbed, and eventually disappear as they are removed by the body.
There may be some redness one week following treatment, however there will be a significant decrease in visible veins. Faster recovery may be achieved by abstaining from alcoholic drinks and smoking for two days before to and two days after your treatment.
By six weeks, the treatment area will have improved dramatically, resulting in visibly clearer skin.
Troy Area Laser Facial Vein Removal
There is no need for surgery or unpleasant and painful injections with Ellipse laser spider vein removal. Treatments are carried out completely outside the body, removing the risks associated with many conventional spider vein treatments, such as sclerotherapy or endoscopic laser vein treatment.
Most importantly, there is no downtime after the operation, and the destroyed veins will never return. Should new spider veins ever appear in the future – due to age, environment, etc. they can also easily be eliminated with another Ellipse treatment.
