If you are tired of hiding unsightly veins on your face, then we can help. Using a precise laser system called Excel VTM, we can reduce the appearance of veins underneath the skin for a more youthful and energetic look. Located in Montclair, NJ, New Jersey Plastic Surgery® is pleased to offer facial vein treatment to the residents in and around Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What Are Facial Veins?
Sometimes spider veins can appear on the face. These red, blue or purple blood vessels may appear as thin lines just underneath the skin’s surface. If the blood vessels are discolored, larger than ¼ inch in diameter and raised above the surface of the skin, then you may have varicose veins. This condition warrants further investigation with a physician.
In either case, awkward-looking veins can be reduced or eliminated with Excel VTM laser vein therapy and/or sclerotherapy. Excel VTM delivers brief pulses of controlled laser energy to the targeted blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and be reabsorbed naturally by the body. During this procedure, adjacent tissues remain unharmed. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a special solution into the problem veins, which makes them collapse, close and be reabsorbed into the body.
The Best Candidates for Facial Vein Therapy
Good candidates have a mild vascular condition that is visible on the face such as spider veins. They are in general good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of this procedure.
Planning Your Facial Vein Therapy
During your consultation, we will explain how facial vein treatment works, answer any questions you might have and customize your facial vein therapy to meet your needs and aesthetic goals. Depending on your medical history and extent of facial veins, you may need multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.
Preparing for Your Facial Vein Therapy
The day of your procedure you should avoid wearing any makeup or thick facial creams.
The Facial Vein Therapy Procedure
Laser therapy involves moving a laser over each problem vein and delivering a short burst of energy. For sclerotherapy, a special solution will be injected into the troublesome veins using a small needle.
How Much Does Facial Vein Therapy Cost?
The cost of facial vein therapy varies for each patient depending on the treatment goals, extent of change desired and other factors. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®. Financing options are available through CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM.
After Your Facial Vein Therapy
Since it takes time for the body to reabsorb the closed veins, you will not see results right after treatment. Some veins may need multiple treatment sessions. In general, most veins should disappear in two to six weeks.
Getting Back to Normal Following Facial Vein Therapy
Since this therapy is minimally invasive and does not use anesthesia, most patients are able to resume light to moderate activities immediately after treatment.
Facial vein therapy can reduce or eliminate unsightly veins that appear just underneath the skin for a younger, more radiant appearance.
