Facial Vein Removal Treatments
Do you need to consult your Fairfax, VA, physicians about facial vein treatments or medical aesthetics?
Facial veins, sometimes referred to as spider veins, are when the small visible veins beneath the skin's surface break. This medical aesthetic issue affects both men and women, but women are more susceptible.
The reason facial veins become dilated and capillaries, or blood vessels, break is due to:
- sun exposure
- extreme heat or cold
- inflammatory skin conditions
While everyone is different, the areas commonly affected are the nose, forehead, and cheeks.
Obvious facial veins cause individuals to feel self-conscious. Although a simple cosmetic, or medical aesthetic issue, physicians offer treatments like laser vein removal with the Excel V Laser. This treatment is used to minimize the appearance of spider veins. The system includes a cooling system so you won't feel pain during treatment, and the treatments can usually be completed in 15-30 minutes. There is no downtime so patients can return to their daily life immediately after treatment. Some patients are able to see results in as little as one treatment, though additional treatments may be needed for full results.
To avoid facial veins, here are a few tips from your Fairfax doctor:
- Limit sun exposure
- Wear sunscreen
- Avoiding extreme weather
If you have any questions or concerns about medical aesthetics treatments, be sure to contact Dr. Fatima Aziz, Dr. Syed Ashraf, and Glenda Thomas, NP at CareLifeStyle Medical Aesthetics in Fairfax, VA.
