How can I get rid of visible veins?
Treating visible veins on your face or legs
Visible veins are a common condition so it’s important to remember that your concern is not unusual and it’s nothing to feel bad about. If you are a heavy drinker, it’s worth noting that excessive alcohol use can exacerbate visible veins or make them more noticeable. If you have rosacea, learn your rosacea triggers so you can manage your symptoms and you may also alleviate some of the redness in your veins. If you’re concerned about visible veins, it may also be time to consider treatment options.
Treatment solutions for visible veins
If you’re concerned about pigmentation, redness, or visible veins on your face and body, we offer a variety of treatment solutions. It’s great to research treatment options before meeting with a specialist, but you’ll need to discuss options with one of our expert cosmetic dermatologists to establish the right custom plan that’s appropriate for your specific concerns.
Intense Pulsed Light
Intense Pulsed Light treatment (IPL), also known as the “Photofacial” is a specialized tool that emits high-intensity pulses of light in varying wavelengths. Skin is rejuvenated as the heat energy helps the body discard damaged cells and regenerate itself leading to increased collagen production and cell regeneration. We’ve been doing IPL treatments for more than 15 years at our Toronto clinic, and it’s always encouraging to see the results. This treatment only takes 30 minutes or so, and it doesn’t require significant recovery or downtime. Multiple treatments are generally recommended for maximal results.
Nd: YAG Laser
The Nd:YAG Laser effectively destroys the unwanted blood vessels that sit too close to the surface of the skin, to rejuvenate the appearance of unwanted visible veins. This medical-grade light-based laser treatment system is optimized to reduce the appearance of visible veins in an effective, safe way with no needed downtime.
Pulsed Dye Laser
Our expert dermatologists use the Pulsed Dye Laser to produce a gentle burst of life that targets the red (hemoglobin) in the blood to diffuse redness. This is a fast, effective treatment that shows results 3-6 weeks post-treatment.
