Facial Vein Treatment
In addition to the natural aging process, there are many reasons facial veins develop. The most common being genetic predisposition, over exposure to the sun, oral contraceptives and hormone therapy. These blood vessels are fixed and will not resolve on their own, but can be safely diminished in a matter of minutes with the Aura Laser.
Aura Laser Treatments are Fast and Effective
The Aura laser coagulates the tiny blood vessels in the face causing them to disappear immediately. The overall result is a more even skin tone.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, your procedure may take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. Patients will experience an intense heat sensation with each pulse of the laser. Some patients describe the feeling as a hot pinprick.
Quickly Achieve a Clearer Complexion with Minimal Downtime
Following treatment, you can expect that your face will be red and slightly swollen. This can last from 24 hours to one week. The swelling can be managed by applying cold compresses to the laser treated skin as well as taking an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication, such as Advil.
You may also experience peeling and/or scabbing to some of the treated areas. This is easily treated with the application of a topical antibiotic ointment or cream. You are able to apply makeup to the treated area immediately after your treatment, if you choose.
