Facial veins can be effectively treated with different procedures.
As more and more men and women are finding out that spider veins (medically termed telangiectasia) on the nose, ears and chin can be treated, they are seeking out knowledgeable professional experts such as Michael Bardwil, M.D., at Texas Vein & Cosmetic Specialists.
The reasons people want to get rid of facial veins are obvious. The most visible signs of aging will appear first on the skin, and who wants them on their face? By treating facial veins, a patient is engaging in a front line defense against the appearance of aging.
What causes facial veins?
Although spider veins are sometimes thought as a side effect of alcoholism, facial veins are actually due to heredity, exposure to the sun, oral contraceptives, hormone therapy or simply the aging process.
How are they treated?
The use of VeinGogh removes unsightly telangiectasia quickly, safely and easily. To lighten rosacea, birthmarks, facial veins and brown spots we use broadband light, or photofacial. Large veins on the face are treated with sclerotherapy. Thousands of people in Houston could benefit from these treatments.
Telangiectasia treated with VeinGogh requires 1-3 sessions. Photofacial treatments are usually performed as a 3-5 set package. Sclerotherapy for larger veins usually takes 3-5 sessions.
Is it covered by insurance?
Treatment of facial veins is considered to be a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance.
