Facial veins can really affect the way you look and the way others see you.
Some facial veins are very small and are concentrated around the nose, while others are on the cheek and chin and may be combined with overall flushing of the skin called Rosacea.
If left untreated the veins will become larger in size and they don’t go away on their own.
Treating facial veins can be done two ways at Lasting Looks Anti Aging Clinic in Toronto.
The first and most common method is IPL (intense pulse light) treatment or Photo Facial on the area. Generally 3-6 treatments are necessary spaced 3 weeks apart. With each IPL treatment the vein becomes weaker and eventually shuts down . When the vein can no longer get its blood supply, it is then absorbed by the body.
The second method to remove veins is with .
This is where a very fine needle is used to inject a sclerosing solution into the vein, collapsing it. Often we will use a combination of both treatments on a patient to remove both large and smaller veins on their face.
After your treatment we ask that you follow very specific instructions such as no exercise, heat or alcohol for 48 hours. This allows the treated veins to stay closed. Once the vein is gone… it’s gone and won’t return.
