Telangiectasias or facial veins, are very fine, superficial veins that have become permanently dilated and visible. They can appear on the nose, chin or cheek area. Facial veins can be successfully treated with our newest laser the excel V™. This laser works by delivering a gentle burst of yellow or green light to the skin. The light is specifically absorbed by the blood vessels in the dermis. These blood vessels are coagulated and then reabsorbed by the body during the natural healing process. Side effects may include redness, tenderness and swelling in the treated area. These are transient and usually do not last more than a few days.
