Clear Away Facial Veins With IPL Laser Treatments

When you look into the mirror, chances are you see your face first. It’s the holder of your facial expressions and the feature that makes you uniquely you. Your face is also the first to show telltale signs of aging.

While we commonly think of wrinkles as the premier sign of aging, it’s not the only. You might notice pesky blue and purple veins appear in places like their temples, nose, or cheeks. These veins are often challenging to conceal with makeup, and while they’re not usually hazardous to your health, you may dream of having a clearer complexion.

Anthony N. Dardano offers Sciton Joule® intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments to patients in Boca Raton, Florida, who want to erase their facial veins and treat various other skin concerns.

Causes of facial veins

Many people who have veins on their face wonder what causes them. After years of sun exposure, your collagen starts to break down, which can reveal these veins. Your skin also starts getting thinner, which may make veins more apparent. 

Other causes of facial veins include:

Many instances of facial veins are found in fair-skinned people who have many years of sun damage.

More than a laser

Laser technology is at the core of many aesthetic treatments these days, but IPL is slightly different. While lasers use only one wavelength of light, IPL uses various wavelengths to treat a larger area at a time. To help you better understand, IPL can be visualized as a camera’s flash, whereas a laser is more like the beam of a flashlight.  

IPL safely administers light to your dermis while leaving your top layer of skin unharmed. Your skin’s pigment absorbs the energy from the light before converting it into heat. The heat then breaks apart unwanted pigment that’s found in your facial veins. 

You receive the most intense laser therapy in the market when you come in for IPL with us. This allows you to get beautiful, dramatic results to better help you love the skin you’re in.

Address multiple skin concerns in one treatment

If you’re like most adults, you probably have multiple skin concerns you’d like to treat. IPL saves you time and money by treating various skincare concerns with one cutting edge technology. In addition to facial veins, IPL also treats:

You can expect your IPL treatment to take about 20-30 minutes. Most patients need 3-6 treatments to get the results they want.

Less pain, no downtime

They say beauty is pain. Luckily with IPL, this isn’t the case — only minimal discomfort is associated with the procedure. Many patients find IPL to be less painful than traditional laser treatments. This can be explained by IPL’s scattered beam of light versus the laser’s concentrated beam.

Patients who undergo other laser treatments need three to seven days to heal from the blistering and peeling that often occurs. There is no downtime required with IPL, which means you can return to work and your daily activities immediately.
