HOW DOES THE LASER TREATMENT WORK?
The laser used on facial veins create a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it delivers a
controlled amount of therapeutic heat to the targeted blood vessels. Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cool
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
Treatment will take place in a private treatment room. You will wear safety eye wear to protect your eyes from the laser light. Your practitioner will guide the laser to the facial veins treatment areas with a small hand piece. Each laser pulse may be preceded by a short pulse of cooling spray. A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the facial vein area and condition being treated.
DOES IT HURT?
Some facial veins patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves in several seconds and is minimized by Candela’s DCD cooling. For some patients, a topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment. Be sure to discuss this with your Laser Technician.
HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
The number of facial veins sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. For hair removal, multiple treatments are required, as the process is most effective when the hair follicle is in its active growth phase. Many factors impact the efficacy of individual laser treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR TREATMENT?
Patients scheduled for hair removal should avoid plucking, electrolysis or hair waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. If you have had a history of herpes simplex virus and are scheduled for facial hair treatment, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Also, any hair should be completely removed by shaving, and your skin should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or skin tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight or tanning booth light for 14 days prior to treatment.
***DO NOT USE ANY ALCOHOL BASED PRODUCTS (MOISTURIZERS, SHAVING CREAMS, PERFUMES) ON THE TREATMENT AREA 24 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT TO PREVENT COMPLICATIONS.
