What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that primarily affects the face, causing redness, red bumps, and visible red blood vessels. If you have rosacea, you may also have dry skin or thick skin. Sometimes rosacea affects the eyes and other parts of the body, too.
You are more likely to have rosacea if you are:
- From a family with others who also have rosacea
Your Body Sculpt aesthetic technician uses laser therapy to quiet down the red and ruddy patches of rosacea on your face. Rosacea cannot be cured, but it can be controlled with regular laser treatments and by avoiding your own personal triggers.
Why do I have red veins on my face?
Small, visible red veins on your face are also called spider veins or telangiectasias. Telangiectasias are simply veins that have swollen or broken.
Rarely, spider veins are a symptom of a disease, such as lupus. However, most spider veins are simply a cosmetic problem. Common causes of red spider veins include:
- Aging skin
- Exposure to sunlight
- Overuse of steroids
- Localized skin trauma
How can a laser eliminate rosacea and red veins?
Your Icon technician measures the amount of red pigment in your lesions and unwanted spider veins and then adjusts the CynoSure laser to target only those areas. The blood in the lesions and spider veins absorbs the laser light energy, which destroys the tiny vessels. Over time, your body then re-absorbs and eliminates the destructed vessels.
After the unneeded vessels have been destroyed, they don’t regenerate. Your skin returns to a normal, clear, and healthy state, free from facial veins and excess redness.
Rosacea, however, is a chronic condition that may recur or flare, particularly during times of stress or after sun exposure. Your aesthetics professionals at Body Sculpt can help you choose the best skincare treatments and routines that minimize rosacea flares.
Does laser treatment hurt?
Laser treatment can feel like a warm or stinging sensation. SculpSure lasers at Body Sculpt include cooling technology that help keep your skin at a comfortable temperature. Your technician may also recommend a numbing cream to optimize your comfort.
When you’re ready for clear skin without ruddiness or red facial veins, call Body Sculpt for a private consultation, or book one online with the convenient form.
How long does a treatment session last?
A typical treatment session for facial veins varies depending on the severity and the treatment method used, but most sessions are quick, lasting only a few minutes to half an hour.
What can I expect after treatment?
Post-treatment, some temporary redness or swelling may occur, but these side effects usually subside quickly. Most people can return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
How many sessions are needed for optimal results?
The number of sessions required varies based on the individual’s condition and the treatment method. Some may see improvements after a single session, while others might need multiple treatments to achieve desired results.
Is there any downtime after facial vein treatment?
Most facial vein treatments have little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
Are the results of facial vein treatment permanent?
While treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of facial veins, maintenance sessions may be necessary for long-term results, especially if new veins appear.
Can all skin types be treated for facial veins?
Advancements in treatment technology have made it possible to treat a wide range of skin types safely. However, a consultation with a specialist is essential to determine the best approach for your skin type.
What should I do before and after treatment to ensure the best results?
Following your specialist’s pre and post-treatment care instructions is crucial for achieving the best results and minimizing the risk of side effects.
How soon will I see results from facial vein treatment?
Results can vary, but many patients notice improvements immediately after treatment, with further enhancements visible as the skin heals and rejuvenates over the following weeks.
