Vein Treatments for Sun-Damaged Skin
Those long, sunny days of summer may have taken a toll on your skin. Some people find regular sun exposure leads to the appearance of visible veins on the face, often around the cheeks and nose. Those small veins, known as telangiectasia rosacea, may become a significant cosmetic concern, since it can be difficult to hide them under makeup. The good news is there are effective treatment options for those sun-induced veins that will produce clearer skin without discomfort or downtime.
Assessing Facial Veins
Before facial veins are treated, they should be examined by a vein specialist. In most cases, facial veins are a cosmetic nuisance, caused by skin trauma, hormonal changes or heredity, in addition to sun damage. However, rare cases may be attributed to an underlying condition, such as an autoimmune disorder or liver damage. It is important to have your veins assessed by an expert to ensure there is no underlying medical problem that also requires treatment.
Best Treatment Option
Once your veins have been evaluated, they are typically treated at PCI Vein Center using an innovative procedure known as VeinGogh. This procedure utilizes thermocoagulation (heat therapy) to eliminate visible facial veins. A handheld device delivers heat below the skin’s surface, directly to the affected vein, without penetrating the skin. The heat causes the vessel walls to seal closed, so the vein can be eliminated through the body’s own lymphatic system.
VeinGogh does not require any type of anesthesia and only takes a few minutes to complete. Patients will enjoy positive results right away, even seeing the veins disappear as the treatment proceeds. There is no downtime after VeinGogh treatments, which means you can say goodbye to those unattractive veins without a major disruption to your daily schedule.
