IPL Treatments for Spider Veins
In addition to VBeam Pulsed Dye Laser treatments, Krauss Dermatology is proud to offer Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments for facial spider veins. IPL treatments are designed to minimize – and even eliminate – brown and red spots on the face, hands, decolletage and more.
IPL treatments work in a similar manner as the VBeam. During an IPL session, the device emits wavelengths of light energy to the targeted area. The spider veins and brown spots absorb this light and eventually break down over the course of multiple treatments.
Most clients need about three to five treatments (spaced four weeks apart) to see their ideal results. Once these results have been achieved, clients can maintain their clear, smooth skin with one to two IPL sessions each year.
In addition to spider veins, IPL treatments can also treat hyperpigmentation, brown spots, rosacea, and even superficial wrinkles and fine lines.
Good Candidates for Facial Spider Vein Treatments
The best candidates for facial spider vein treatments are those individuals with visible red, purple, and blue veins on the nose and cheeks. Candidates with lighter skin tones tend to see better results, as it makes it easier for each device to target the darker pigmentation of spider veins. Sun avoidance is imperative both before and after Vbeam laser and IPL treatments.
