Spider veins and surface blood vessels can develop on anyone’s face regardless of age or gender. These skin abnormalities and other discolorations can be a result of many factors such as genetics, excessive sun and wind exposure, alcohol consumption, trauma to the skin, and medications that widen blood vessels.
While facial veins rarely pose health concerns unless they start bleeding, many men are self-conscious about the appearance of veins on the face. Fortunately, these skin conditions can be effectively and painlessly treated with a series of intense pulsed light treatments to help female and male patients achieve clear and even skin.
What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) with the new Stellar M22™ laser enables Dr. Monique S. Cohn, DO FAOCD to effectively treat spider veins, broken capillaries, rosacea and other discolorations with intense pulsed light energy to effectively target these vascular conditions and cause fading and visual disappearance.
Dr Cohn’s male patients love IPL as a cosmetic option because it is non-invasive, does not involve needles or incisions, and has minimal or no downtime. The procedure can be completed over a lunch break in 30-60 minutes. Most patients will need from 3 to 6 IPL treatments to see optimal results.
The ultimate goal of this photo rejuvenation for most men Dr Cohn treats is looking clear of veins andevening skin tone which makes them look younger without any indication of being “overly done” with cosmetic procedures.
Men who are in good health, committed to a daily skincare regimen, and regularly apply sunscreen can still develop surface veins and discolorations. So, IPL treatment is a low cost and quick way to refresh and clear the face for a more youthful appearance. Results are typically visible about six weeks afterthe second IPL treatment.
Results are typically visible about six weeks after your IPL treatment. Results can last for about twelve months before you may need additional treatments.
