Are Veins on Your Face Giving You Anxiety About Your Appearance?

Facial veins, particularly those around the nose and cheeks, can make you feel self-conscious and want to cover up. In truth, they have many contributing causes not everyone is aware of. If you’re suffering from small or large facial veins, Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz has treatment options for you.

What are Facial Veins?

Face veins typically present as spider veins around the nose, mouth, chin, or eyes. Veins near your eyes may also be larger and blue or green in color. Sun exposure, genetics, pregnancy, inherited disorders, rosacea, and certain medications all contribute to the cause, as well as liver disease and alcohol consumption. Larger varicose veins on the face and neck can be inherited as well, appearing at birth or in early childhood.

What Treatments are Available for Facial Veins?

Triple-board-certified physician Dr. Craig Schwartz is Kansas City’s most experienced and credentialed vein specialist and has the expertise and knowledge to guide you through your treatment options. 

Dr. Schwartz uses the Vein Gogh device, as well as multiple other laser options, including the Dornier 940 Diode and 1064 Nd-Yag to provide a superior solution for the treatment of all of the even finest spider veins across the face and nose. Many of these veins are too tiny to be treated with sclerotherapy injections or standard laser treatments, which are, generally, both better suited to treat larger spider veins. VeinGogh delivers outstanding results using proprietary Microburst Technology™, which creates effective, controllable heating of dermal vasculature, without significant discomfort or damage to the surrounding tissue.

What Results Will I See?

Results can usually be seen immediately following your treatment, with continued noticeable improvements for several days to weeks as the treated veins are naturally absorbed by your body. Although the VeinGogh and the other laser procedures will reduce the treated veins, it is possible for new veins to form in time. Most patients require just 1-2 treatments for their facial veins. Dr. Schwartz will be able to assess your needs and review your treatment plan during your complimentary vein screening.

Is There Any Downtime?

You won’t experience bruising, scarring or pigmentation as with other alternative laser treatments offered by some med spas. Some patients with sensitive skin may notice temporary redness for approximately 1-2 weeks post-procedure.  This truly is a lunchtime procedure, as patients can resume normal activity with zero downtime.
