Facial Veins

Visible facial veins are the bane of existence for most women. Nothing can make your more self-conscious about your appearance than unsightly facial veins. But there is good news, there are treatments available that can help you get rid of these unsightly annoyances. And if you have these dilated blood vessels on other parts of your body as well, they can be treated too!

Areas of the body that dilated blood vessels appear include:

• Upper chest

Facial Vein Treatment

There are a variety of facial vein treatment options on the market today including electrosurgery that utilizes an electric current from a hand held needle. When applied to the blood vessel, the electric current destroys it.

Another treatment option is lasers that utilize high energy focused light. Vascular lasers target the hemoglobin in the blood destroying the blood vessel and leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

And finally, there is what is called intense pulsed light therapy that is very similar to a laser, but uses broadband light instead of focused light. The broadband light destroys the blood vessel and also doesn't harm the surrounding tissue and there is less purpura.

If you are interested in facial vein treatment you should contact a cosmetic surgeon in your area. Whether it's facial vein treatment or another cosmetic procedure that you want to have done, there is a cosmetic surgeon in your area who can assist you today.
