Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that affects about 14 million Americans. Often, this condition is the underlying cause of visible facial veins and redness. Symptoms of rosacea include:
Rosacea also causes small blood vessels to appear on the face, especially on the cheeks, nose, or chin. Severe rosacea may lead to a bulbous or bumpy nose from tissue buildup.
There are several treatments to reduce the visible facial veins and redness of rosacea, including lifestyle changes and prescription creams. Facial veins that persist despite treatment usually improve with laser therapy.
The team at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery uses the Cutera excel V laser system, a state-of-the-art treatment that targets spider veins, rosacea, and pigmented lesions such as sunspots.
Cutera excel V is a noninvasive laser skin treatment that provides precise improvement of both superficial and deep visible veins on the face and legs. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and shades.
During treatment, the excel V device sends ultra-precise, specialized laser energy into your skin. This laser uses specific wavelengths to target the abnormal blood vessels, which then absorb heat from the laser and die. This results in restoration of your natural skin color.
First, your provider at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery carefully evaluates your skin. Then, they create a customized laser vein treatment based on the particular concerns and goals you discuss during a consultation.
Treatment with the excel V laser doesn’t require incisions, anesthesia, or downtime for recovery. This cutting-edge technology incorporates an innovative cooling mechanism to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
The amount of time it takes varies depending on your unique condition, but most excel V treatments last 15-30 minutes. Afterward, you can go back to work or normal activities right away.
Side effects of excel V laser vein treatment are rare, but you may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising. This should fade within a few days.
