Often referred to as telangiectasias or broken blood vessels, these unsightly little veins can appear on your face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. Spider veins on the legs are commonly located on the thighs, below the knees, and on the ankles. Common causes of spider veins in Tucson include genetic predisposition, exposure to the sun, and normal aging. Clients prone to acne or Rosacea are more vulnerable to irregular, fine, red lines that appear web-like in design and contribute to the overall red, ruddy appearance of our skin.
The best option for treating these common skin offenders is Laser Vein Therapy. Light based therapies such as lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) target the spider veins directly and close them off. Larger concentrations of facial or leg veins may require a series of treatments to close off all of the veins.
Facial veins have characteristics that make them easy to treat with both of these light based therapies. Leg veins are larger and often respond better to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The results with both vein therapies are excellent!
