Facial Vein Removal Q and A

What type of facial veins can be removed with ICON laser treatment?

ICON laser treatment can address most facial veins. Facial vein removal can include:

Broken capillaries

These generally appear in the nose and chin areas. The capillaries are the tiniest of all blood vessels, and they’re closer to the outer layers of skin than any other blood vessels. Since they’re so close to the outer layer of the skin, any damage shows up clearly. Broken capillaries often look like very thin red or dark red strings.

Spider angiomas

Commonly called spider veins, spider angiomas also appear on the face fairly often. Spider veins have a darker center area (the damaged blood vessel) that radiates tiny lines outward (the individual capillaries.)

Rosacea

Rosacea often causes damaged blood vessels, especially in the nose and cheek areas. The visible veins that result from rosacea can be effectively treated with the ICON laser, just as other types of facial veins can.

How does the ICON laser reduce the appearance of facial veins?

The laser light specifically targets the blood vessels that result in visible facial veins. The light makes the blood vessels constrict. Eventually, they will completely disappear as they are reabsorbed by the body’s instinctive healing process.

What does the treatment feel like?

You may feel some warmth during the laser treatment session, but the Advanced Contact Cooling™ system will help keep you comfortable. As your provider moves the treatment tool around the treatment area, you’ll notice that your skin feels cool. This allows most patients to experience the treatment without pain.

How long does the treatment take?

Each treatment session lasts half an hour or less. Most patients need only a few treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. The team at San Pedro Laser Center will create a customized treatment plan to help you get the results you want.

What can you expect after treatment?

After treatment, you may experience mild redness, similar to a minor sunburn, in the treatment area. A small amount of swelling is also normal and should abate in 24 hours or less in most cases. Most patients resume their regular routine immediately — no downtime is required at all.
