What Is Facial Vessel Clearance?
Facial vessels, or spider veins, tend to appear as twisted, unsightly additions to our skin. These vessels are not only unpleasant to look at, but painful as well. Those struggling with facial vessels and spider veins are no strangers to frequent bouts of itching, burning, and irritation. Living with these veins can be especially difficult both from a physical and aesthetic perspective. At WPC Aesthetics & Wellness, we’re here to help those struggling with this issue by providing facial vessel clearance through our ICON laser system. The ICON is a multi-functional tool that can improve the appearance of facial vessels while minimizing any pain and discomfort during the process.
What Causes Facial Vessels?
Broken blood vessels on the face are enlarged blood vessels that occur just beneath the surface of the skin. Typically, these facial vessels appear as red, web-shaped lines that tend to cluster around the nostrils and other parts of the face. These vessels can also commonly be found on the legs, but can generally appear just about anywhere on the body. Most of the time, these vessels don’t cause any symptoms. However, they can be painful for some and an unwelcome sight for most. Long-term sun damage and certain underlying conditions such as rosacea are typically responsible for the appearance of facial vessels.
ICON Laser Treatment for Facial Vessels
At WPC Aesthetics & Wellness, we’re proud to offer facial vessel clearance through our powerful laser ICON system. This system is one of the most sophisticated lasers available for cosmetic surgery treatments. When you come in for a consultation, we will discuss your goals for the procedure and what you can expect during treatment. During the treatment process itself, we will utilize a special ICON handpiece to treat a small area of your face first in order to gauge your skin’s response to the laser. If treatment is shown to be effective, we will continue the procedure over the rest of the targeted areas until your facial vessels are properly addressed.
Some results can be seen immediately after your ICON facial vessel clearance. However, continued improvement in your skin’s appearance necessitates about 1-3 treatment sessions. In addition to the vessel reduction, you may notice some skin darkening. If any age spots were addressed during the procedure, the spots will flake off over the next 1-3 weeks leaving you with a glowing appearance. Lastly, you may also see progressive results on any fine lines, wrinkles or scarring over the next six months as your skin naturally responds to the treatment.
