Advanced laser technology — breakthrough treatment for facial redness and veins

Chronic skin conditions like rosacea and cumulative sun exposure can cause facial redness and visible facial “spider” veins.  These issues can not only make you look older, they can lead to others making jokes (and assumptions) about your health and your lifestyle.

We know that for many of our patients, facial redness and veins can be a lifelong struggle as heat, certain foods, skin products and sun can worsen your symptoms.

The good news is that Reflections has the technology and expertise to help you address facial redness and veins, ensuring you look your best at any age!

Take control of facial redness with a little help from your friends at Reflections.

Get the red out

At Reflections, we use our FDA-approved, state-of-the-art lasers to treat facial redness and veins, improving the skin’s color, tone, and clarity.  We can reduce your redness in a series of treatments, and then keep it at bay with occasional maintenance visits.

Facial-red-gallery-barThere isn’t one device that can treat all forms and causes of redness.  The laser specialists at Reflections have many devices to choose from and will tailor the right device to your skin type and treatment goals.

Three of the best and most well known laser facial rejuvenation procedures to dramatically improve facial redness and spider veins are the Vbeam Perfecta laser, Starlux Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and the Gentle YAG laser.  These treatments can generally be performed with minimal to no downtime, so you can get back to your busy life (just without the looks and the questions).

Many options — great results

Vbeam Perfecta delivers intense but gentle bursts of light to the skin of the face, neck or chest. The light is absorbed by undesirable, visible blood vessels on the surface of the skin reducing redness and creating a more even complexion. A cool cryogen spray (DCD) protects the skin and makes the treatment comfortable.

Patients generally need a series of treatments, spaced three to four weeks apart. Depending on the nature of the condition being treated, it normally requires two to three visits, or possibly more. Certain chronic conditions, such as rosacea, will usually require maintenance in the future.

Starlux IPLuses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of broken capillaries, spider veins, and rosacea, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

Treatments can be performed on the face, neck, chest and hands and required little or no downtime.  The number of treatments required depends on the severity of your condition, but typically three to four treatments are performed, spaced about one month apart. Results become apparent even after the first treatment and there is a very high degree of patient satisfaction with this very predictable and safe type of therapy.

GentleYag is a revolutionary high-energy laser that is great for treating isolated blood vessels, particular the stubborn ones on the side of the nose that contribute to bothersome facial redness. It works by emitting a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin where it is absorbed by the target; hemoglobin in the blood vessels. The laser energy is transformed into heat, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected while treating unwanted facial veins. During treatment, the laser sprays a cooling substance that helps make the procedure even more comfortable. No downtime is required.
