If the appearance of facial veins is bothersome and has you feeling self-conscious about your skin, there are non-invasive facial vein treatments that can help you look and feel better.  It is not necessary to undergo uncomfortable or expensive procedures to reduce the appearance of facial veins and regain a more even complexion. While certain products claim to offer lasting results, most can only offer temporary and superficial treatment that don’t actually get to the root of the problem.

For many people, the appearance of facial veins is simply a matter of genetics, however, inflammation, sun damage, and skin sensitivity may also be contributing factors. These signs and symptoms tend to become more prevalent as you age. Unfortunately, once facial veins become visible, they will not fade or disappear without treatment. The result is a persistent redness that can not be reversed through the use of creams and moisturizers.

BBL Broadband Light is currently one of the most effective facial vein treatments available. . It works by delivering pulses of light to the affected areas, targeting the tiny capillaries that that are causing redness in the skin. Once treated, the capillaries are resorbed by the body resulting in skin that is even-toned and radiant.

What to Expect During  Facial Vein Treatment

BBL is quick, offering visible and lasting results. Each time a pulse is delivered onto the skin, you may feel a slight snap against the skin.  After the treatment, there may be some redness or swelling in the treated area, as well as a feeling of warmth, similar to a sunburn.  These effects are temporary, generally lasting 30-60 minutes.

Does BBL Require Downtime?

There is no need to worry about downtime or missing work. This non-invasive procedure is safe and will allow you to return to most normal activities.  Your practitioner will educate you on how to properly care for your skin after the treatment so that you can achieve and maintain your optimal outcome. 

What Results Can I Expect?

After treatment you may notice that the treated veins look slightly different, or have changed colour.  This is normal and is an indicator that they have responded to the treatment.  Over the next few weeks you will notice the capillaries slowly fading away.  Some capillaries may require an additional treatment before they disappear completely.  Once the capillaries have disappeared they will not return, although it is possible you may acquire new facial veins over time if you are prone to them.  Proper skin care and daily use of sunblock is essential to protect to your skin and reduce inflammation.
