About Facial Spider Vein Treatment in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles
Laser vein therapy is a revolutionary medical technique which uses patented technology to eliminate benign vascular and pigmented lesions non-invasively from the face. Facial Spider Vein Treatment is one of the more cutting edge treatments currently available. At Epione we strive continuously to offer the most cutting edge techniques available to patients for medical treatment. If you are seeking Vein Treatment, please contact our offices to see how this form of Facial Spider Vein Treatment can benefit you.
The principle procedure is that a laser penetrates the facial skin to raise the temperature of the blood vessel and safely coagulate it. Over time the vessel in the face fades and slowly disappears. It is highly recommended that large to mid-size veins be treated with injection, and small to mid-size veins be treated by lasers.
Alternatives to Facial Spider Vein Treatment would be Sclerotherapy, which is an injection of sclerosing solution.
If you are interested in Facial Spider Vein Treatment, or any form of Vein Treatment, please contact our office for a private consultation appointment. At this time the doctor will discuss if treatment is warranted and what the treatment outline will look like. Photographs are typically taken for before and after reference images. As with all procedures you will be asked to read and sign a consent form. The number of treatments needed depends on what is being treated, and the size of the area requiring treatment. There are times when the physician may recommend doing a test spot for the first session. Any one lesion may require several treatments, so there might be a need for multiple treatments. If repeat treatments are needed they are usually done every 6 weeks or so.
Patients typically report satisfaction with their results, but this can vary from patient to patient. It is impossible to predict what level of improvement any one patient will have. This is a procedure that can take up to several months to see the final result. It is important that patients have a realistic expectation for improvement and not an expectation for perfection.
Treated areas may appear red and/or bruised. Vein removal pain is generally mild and transient. Swelling, blistering and crusting can occur. Scarring is unusual. Some patients may experience a lightening or darkening of the skin in affected areas. This is usually temporary (may take several months to clear) but can also be a permanent side effect. Permanent hair loss in the treated area may occur. In majority of cases for Facial Spider Vein Treatment, no recovery time needed. The Laser emits a narrow spectrum of light in short pulses during vein treatment. This may feel like rubber band hitting against your skin. It usually lasts a few minutes, but can last longer. We may recommend a topical gel for you to apply as needed for discomfort.
Prior to treatment wash the area that varicose or spider veins are to be removed from well. It is important to avoid taking aspirin for a week prior to the treatment. After the procedure it is important to care for the treated area very gently. The most significant aspect to remember for recovery is that you need to avoid any sun exposure for about 2 months after treatment.
Epione is excited to yet again offer revolutionary medical treatment options to our patients. If you would like to learn more about Facial Spider Vein Treatment, please feel free to call our office!

There is a common mislead that lasers used for vein treatment can cause cancer. Cancer growth has nothing to do with laser, which involves simply removing hair. No cancer causing radiation is produced by lasers.
