Swollen facial veins can develop for a number of different reasons, and they usually aren’t dangerous. However, most people find them unsightly and want a way to remove them.
With facial vein treatment, your provider at Danvers Family Doctors, P.C. uses ICON™ laser technology to destroy the lining of the vein wall. This causes the vein to collapse and shrink, which enables the body to reabsorb the vein. The result is smooth skin without any noticeable veins.
The ICON technology is also powerful enough to target facial veins without damaging the surface layers of skin. A treatment session is quick, and there are no invasive methods or downtime involved.
With facial vein treatment, you can return to your normal activities right after your appointment. Your skin may feel sensitive to the touch for a while, and you might find it comfortable to apply a cool compress.
Your doctor may have specific instructions to care for your skin in the days following your treatment. It’s normal for the skin to change in color or darken a bit after this type of treatment, but this is a temporary side effect that’s part of the healing process.
Over time, you’ll notice that facial veins shrink and disappear. You might also notice that your skin looks brighter, firmer, and more radiant. This type of treatment can take several weeks for you to notice the full effects, and many people benefit from multiple sessions.
Wearing sunscreen and taking good care of your skin can help prevent the formation of new veins. If you have a genetic predisposition for facial veins, your doctor can talk with you about strategies for keeping your skin healthy.
At Danvers Family Doctors, P.C., the expert team of providers and staff helps patients with a wide range of cosmetic issues using the ICON laser system. The technology is incredibly effective when it comes to facial veins, and it provides lasting results without pain or discomfort.
