Embarrassed by Red Spider Veins on Your Face? Let Us Laser Them Away

Common on your face and legs, broken blood vessels, better known as “spider veins,” can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Fortunately, with today’s advanced laser technology, you can treat spider veins easily and nonsurgically. 

At The Effect Lifestyle Practice in Jacksonville, Florida, we offer the convenience and effectiveness of the Icon™ laser system. If you’re embarrassed by red spider veins on your face, let us laser them away so you can feel more confident.

Understanding spider veins

You may be wondering why you even have red spider veins on your face in the first place. Spider veins are broken blood vessels that occur just below the surface of your skin. When blood vessels break, small, red lines spread across your face in a spidery, weblike pattern. 

Spider veins are often the result of:

You might even get facial spider veins if you sneeze or cough too hard. Whatever the underlying cause, broken blood vessels cause blood to pool in these tiny veins, making them appear visibly red through your skin. While spider veins are harmless, they can be frustrating, especially when you try to cover them up with makeup every day.

The Icon laser system makes spider veins fade away

The innovative technology of the Icon laser system by CynoSure® nonsurgically targets and destroys broken blood vessels beneath the surface of your skin. While this sounds a bit severe, it’s really quite safe! The laser energy goes straight to the damaged spider veins with minimal or no damage to the outer layer of your skin.

After laser treatment, the blood in your damaged vessels automatically reroutes to healthier veins. In the weeks that follow your treatments, old spider veins simply fade away. While some men and women see a noticeable improvement after a single Icon laser treatment, a series of sessions usually delivers optimal results.

Laser treatment for veins is fast and effective 

What’s even more amazing is that, depending on the size of the area you’re having treated, the Icon laser works in as quickly as 5-30 minutes. It’s fast, it’s easy, and the results are long-lasting – all without surgery or lengthy downtime. 

In fact, while your face may be a little red immediately following treatment, you can return to your usual activities. Just be sure to protect your face from sun exposure. 

Isn’t it painful to remove spider veins?

It’s nothing you can’t handle. Most people compare the laser energy to the quick snap of a rubber band against your skin. Since treatments are so efficient, it’s over before you have a chance to be uncomfortable. 

Intense pulsed light is another spider vein treatment option

If you’re concerned about pain or skin damage from the laser, we also offer intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments. Like a laser, IPL energy targets spider veins below the surface of your skin; but with IPL there’s no risk of damaging the top layer of your skin. 

Intense pulsed light treatments tend to take a bit longer than laser treatments, and you may need several sessions to achieve your desired results. Once we examine your spider veins and skin, and discuss your concerns, we can recommend the laser or IPL treatment that’s best for your needs. 

If you’re living with red spider veins on your face, it’s time to stop covering them with makeup and explore a more long-term solution. Like every service we offer at The Effect Lifestyle Practice, our goal is to help you look and feel your best at every age.
