This is a laser treatment used to reduce veins on the nose and face.
The procedure uses a focused beam of light to target the vein. As the laser heats up, the vein is destroyed and over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
Most patients report a high degree of satisfaction with the procedure although the results are not immediate. After the laser therapy, the vessels underneath the skin will gradually change from a dark blue to light red color, then eventually disappearing in two to six weeks.
It is generally recommended that the treatments be spaced four to six weeks apart. If new veins appear, additional treatments are required for optimum results.
