Facial Veins

in Albany, NY

Unsightly facial veins may be found on the nose, cheeks, eyelids, forehead and neck. These facial veins are a form of spider veins and are also known as thread veins, telangiectasias or spider angiomas. Facial veins are treatable and usually cause no other symptoms.

Risk Factors for Facial Veins:

It is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of facial veins, but several known risk factors are known, including:

Facial Vein Treatment:

Laser light technology has advanced tremendously in recent years. With the ability to deliver effective and accurate treatment to each vein, the risk to the facial skin is minimized. The energy is delivered through the skin, gets absorbed by the affected blood vessels inducing a reaction that slowly closes the vessel. Most patients report little to no discomfort during the 15-45 minute procedure. Dr. Kayastha can determine which treatment type works best for your specific condition after a careful review of your medical history as well as targeted physical examination of your facial veins.

Following laser skin treatment, your skin may feel tender for several days and you may have some mild swelling and redness immediately following treatment. Dr. Kayastha will remind you to avoid sun exposure, apply sunscreen before going out (even if its’ raining!) and avoid strong skin cleansers or creams.

Facial vein laser treatments are considered to be for cosmetic reasons, therefore most health insurance policies do not cover them. Here at Albany Laser & Vein, we offer affordable treatment packages that fit nearly any budget. If you have noticed any facial skin conditions and are interested in getting treatment, contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of Albany’s top plastic surgeon’s Dr. Kayastha.
