Many factors may increase the risk of developing facial veins and redness. These include aging, sun exposure, genetics, and trauma to the skin. Blood vessels may become more visible due to dilation and it can have a negative effect on one’s appearance. Facial veins and redness commonly occur on areas of the face such as the nose, cheeks, and forehead. Redness may also be caused by conditions such as rosacea, alcohol consumption and metabolic and systemic problems, such as liver disease and hormonal imbalances.

Many patients feel that facial veins and redness can detract from their natural beauty. Thanks to modern developments in dermatology, patients are excited to find out that there is a solution! Dr. Shelton can assist with the use of the V-Beam Laser.

The V-Beam Laser is used to reduce pigmentation and blood vessels. This pulsed dye laser treatment targets and destroys blood vessels. Not only can this be used on the face, but this treatment can also be used as an alternative to sclerotherapy for spider and varicose veins. Light bursts treat the veins while protecting and avoiding damage to the surrounding skin tissue. This treatment can be used on patients of all ages, and has even been used on young children for the reduction of port wine stains. Many patients are relatively comfortable during their treatment with or without topical anesthetics.

Lasers are also used for the removal or reduction of pigmented lesions, tattoos, and for skin resurfacing to address problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, texture, and tone. Our dermatologists can assist in deciding which laser therapy is appropriate for each individual’s needs and desires.

If you live in the New York area and you have considered therapies for reducing facial veins and redness, Dr Ron Shelton and staff can help. With the V-Beam Laser, patients can improve the appearance of their skin and boost their self-esteem in just one appointment! Call us today and schedule your initial consultation visit.
