Facial veins are dilated blood vessels that are the result of a weakening of the elastic walls of the blood vessel. They are usually found on the forehead, nose, cheeks or chin. Although they are commonly found in matted patches (telangiectatic matting) they can consist of single, larger veins.
Facial veins can also be removed by laser treatment. Using focused energy, the laser safely and effectively destroys the blood vessel by targeting the hemoglobin and leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
The treatment is virtually painless with no downtime.
A series of 2-4 treatments, scheduled 4 weeks apart is usually recommended.
