WHAT IS THE VBEAM™ FACIAL SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL PROCEDURE?

The VBeam™ facial spider vein removal procedure is a wonderful laser technique to remove unwanted blood vessels in such areas as the nose cheek or chin.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE? HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?

Treatment with the VBeam™ laser takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the number of vessels to be treated. Usually 1 to 2 treatments sessions are required to see a 50 to 95% improvement. These are spaced out every 4 weeks.

WHAT IS THE PRE CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE VBEAM™ FACIAL SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL PROCEDURE?

Typically, we ask our patients to discontinue the use of retinoic acid products and glycolic acid products for 3 to 4 days before your treatment. It is also wise to stay out of intense sunlight (or tanning beds) beginning 1 week prior to your treatment.

HOW MUCH DISCOMFORT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE TREATMENT?

There is minimal discomfort with our VBeam™ facial spider vein removal procedure. A cooling spray is applied with the VBeam™ laser procedure. Pain usually is described as a very mild "rubber" band snap discomfort. Cool compresses and medications such as Motrin™ or Advil™ can readily help to alleviate any discomfort.

HOW LONG DOES THE SKIN TAKE TO HEAL?

VBeam™ facial spider vein removal is minimally traumatic to the skin. Slight bruising or purpura is all that is noted post op. Depending on the location, bruising can take up to ten days to resolve.

WHAT ABOUT POST OP CARE?

We recommend a post laser skin care system. To maintain your cosmetic benefit, we can also recommend some excellent product lines that contain green tea and growth factors. Concealing makeup, e.g. Jane Iredale™, can be used to minimize the color changes if bruising occurs in a noticeable location.

HOW LONG WILL THE BENEFITS FROM VBEAM™ FACIAL SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL LAST?

The benefits from the VBeam™ facial spider vein removal procedure can last for several years. Repeat treatments are sometimes required to further enhance your results but this is determined on a case by case basis. In our experience, patient satisfaction has been extremely high for this procedure. Results, however, may vary from patient to patient.
