Did you know that at least 50% of people 18 years and older have unwanted facial veins? These little bad boys are generally pretty easy to treat. Especially when using a laser treatment as good as the Cutera ND: Yag.
What is the treatment like?
Laser treatment for facial veins is, generally, a 10 to 15-minute treatment where each vein is given a tiny ‘zap’. This treatment can sometimes feel like a little pinch, but such a small area is treated at a time that it makes for a pretty comfortable treatment.
How many laser treatments for facial veins do I need?
This can range person to person, but generally 1-3 treatments (one every 4-6 weeks) are needed for optimal results.
What to expect after laser treatment for facial veins.
Sometimes a small amount of redness and local swelling that should clear within 24 hours. As we’re working with veins, sometimes a little bruise can occur. But not to fear – you CAN cover with makeup right away!
Who can NOT have this treatment?
Anyone with a sunburn, dark tan, tattooed makeup over the vein to be treated, skin infections, anyone pregnant/breastfeeding, or anyone on certain acne medications such as Roaccutane.
