Facial blue veins, frequently found around the eyes and on the forehead, are a common cosmetic concern that most individuals don’t realize can be treated. In fact SkinCare Physicians’ dermatologists can easily clear these blood vessels with little discomfort and virtually no side effects in a matter of 3 straightforward treatments.

The treatments are performed with a long pulsed Nd:YAG laser which targets the blood in the vessels causing them to collapse. Over a few weeks the vessels shrivel up and disappear. Three treatments, performed every 6 to 8 weeks, are usually necessary to ensure that the vessels go away gently and almost painlessly and don’t come back. These blue veins are most frequently found around the eyes, but are also seen on the forehead and cheeks, especially in fair skinned individuals. Veins in all three are responding equally well.

Ask your SkinCare Physicians dermatologist to take a look at your face to see if you are a candidate for this simple treatment.
