“Broken” blood vessels gradually appear on the face as a result of sun-exposure, Rosacea, heredity, or a combination of these factors. Patients are often self-conscious about the appearance of these veins, and are sometimes concerned about giving the impression of being heavy drinkers. Camouflage of the blood vessels with make-up becomes increasingly time-consuming and difficult. Fortunately, these veins can be effectively treated with a sophisticated laser treatment by Dr. Renuka Diwan.
Other blemishes such as blue-purple venous lakes on the lips, blue veins under the eyes, red angiomas on the face or body, red spider angiomas, redness of the face from Rosacea, redness of the neck from sun damage, and portwine stain birthmarks, that are related to blood vessels, can also be treated effectively with the Gemini laser.
The blood vessels can be significantly improved, if not completely removed, by non-invasive treatments with a state-of-the-art laser. Dr. Diwan uses expert laser techniques to selectively target the blood vessels in the skin without breaking the skin’s surface.
The in-office treatment is followed by mild swelling and pinkness for 1-2 days. You should still feel well enough to return to work and be able to cover up any signs of treatment using makeup. Dr. Diwan will provide you with detailed care instructions after your facial vein treatment. It is important to avoid sun exposure as your skin heals, and thereafter.
Recovery from treatment of other individual problems related to blood vessels is similar and specific details will be explained in detail before your laser treatment.
By the end of the laser treatment the veins become invisible. There is significant improvement after a single treatment. Further improvement is achieved with additional treatments, which are spaced at least six weeks apart. With the blood vessels removed, the original appearance of the skin, without the broken blood vessels, is restored.
Some other problems such as venous lakes and angiomas can take about three weeks to resolve.
