What Causes Facial Veins and Leg Veins?
Spider veins or reticular veins are formed because of genetics, sun exposure, and pressure to the area. The veins commonly seen on areas of the face, typically around the nose and cheeks, are often the results of too much sun exposure, or in some cases, a condition called rosacea. Spider veins on the legs develop from pressure that is applied to the venous system by way of standing for long hours, increased weight, aging, and genetics.
How Laser Vein Removal Works
Elite Plus uses a 1064 nm Nd: YAG wavelength that targets hemoglobin. Using a selective wavelength, it targets the vessels, heats up, and causes coagulation of the blood and vessel. The vessels are then reabsorbed, leaving the skin smooth and clear.
What To Expect from Your Laser Vein Removal Treatment?
Elite Plus can be used on most skin types and tones. During your treatment, you’ll be given goggles to wear to protect your eyes from the laser. A cool gel will be applied to the areas being treated to act as a safety barrier between the laser and your skin. For your comfort, we use a cooling system that is attached to the laser.
The laser slowly targets individual vessels until they are completely treated. You may feel a warm snap like a rubber band on your skin, but the cooling system will keep you comfortable. Treatment times vary for each individual person and can last 30 minutes to an hour.
What To Expect After Your Treatment?
After one treatment, you will notice the vessels beginning to fade. Some patients may require multiple treatments, typically between one and three. It is important to elevate your legs for the next 24 hours after the treatment to get the best results. This allows your body to reabsorb the vessels, otherwise the ongoing pressure of walking may cause the vessel to remain. During your initial consultation, we will review the number of treatment sessions that are best for you.
Additional Uses for Elite Plus
The Elite Plus platform is very versatile and offers more than vein treatment. At Eros Beauty and Wellness, we recommend the Elite laser treatment for the following conditions:
- Pigmentation: If you have skin discoloration, such as facial brown spots, age spots, or hyperpigmentation, Elite Plus is designed to target excess pigmentation in the skin. It diffuses redness and stimulates collagen production, improving the overall skin texture.
If you suffer from one of these skin ailments and would like to know if Elite Plus is the right treatment option for you, don’t hesitate to schedule your consultation with Dr. Eros. She will conduct a thorough examination of your skin to create the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Elite Plus?
If you’re in good health and you’re unhappy with the appearance of veins that you’d like to have removed, you are most likely well-suited to have laser vein removal. Dr. Eros will examine your skin during your private consultation and help you decide if the procedure is right for you.
