Noticeable veins are common, especially in people over 45 years of age, but that doesn’t make them any less unsettling. If you have been covering your legs or face year after year, you may want to consider your options regarding professional vein treatment.
Problematic veins are the result of the vein becoming weak and stretched. Once a vein becomes visible through the skin, there’s not much a person can do on their own to treat it. The good news is it may be removed with professional vein treatment so that you can go about your life with confidence.
While noticeable veins may not be a serious health hazard at first, if they are left untreated, certain veins can develop into a serious condition that is much more difficult to treat. Even when the veins do not yet show beneath the skin, the symptoms may still be there.
Although problematic veins most commonly develop on the legs, they can also show up on the face as well. When they appear on the face, they can be especially bothersome. This is because your face is your calling card to the world. If you have visible facial veins and facial redness, this can detract from your overall appearance.
Fortunately, we have multiple vein treatment options available at our office. These include laser treatment. These procedures are performed in the comfort of our office and typically require little to no recovery time.
Laser vein treatment involves using carefully controlled laser energy to treat the affected vein. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the blood and also damages the vein wall, causing it to collapse.
