Intense pulsed light (IPL) is an innovative non-surgical treatment that harnesses the power of specially designed light pulses to offer precise and effective treatment for a number of skin care issues, such as:
- Broken capillaries
- Dilated blood vessels
- Age spots
- Brown spots
- Sun damage
What Can I Expect During My Laser Treatment?
Your comfort and safety are top priorities at Synergy Medical Aesthetics. Laser facial vein treatment is generally well-tolerated, and topical numbing creams are often not needed. You will experience a mild snapping sensation, similar to the feeling of a rubber band, as the laser pulses against your skin.
There is no downtime associated with laser treatment. Most of our patients return to their normal activities right after the quick, in-office procedure. You may experience redness and warmth at the treatment site, but these effects will quickly subside.
Dr. Weichert will thoroughly explain your treatment in advance and ensure that your procedure is progressing properly.
What Causes Facial Veins?
Much like spider veins and broken capillaries, facial veins are usually harmless but may cause aesthetic concerns for those who experience them. Although anyone is susceptible to this condition, it is most common among fair-skinned women and usually appears around the age of 40.The thread-like red or blue-coloured veins can appear anywhere on your face, but occur most often on the cheeks, nose and forehead.
How Much Does Laser Facial Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of facial vein treatment can vary from patient to patient based on the treatment method, specific circumstances and whether the treatment is combined with other non-surgical procedures. Generally, IPL photofacial treatment begins at $300 for the full face, with three to five treatment sessions recommended for optimal results.
We offer a 10% discount for the purchase of a three-treatment package ($675).
