Effective Treatment for Facial Redness and Broken Blood Vessels
Redness from rosacea, dilated blood vessels, sun damage, port wine stains, or cherry angiomas can be effectively treated with the Excel V laser. The Cutera Excel V pulsed dye laser (PDL) was specifically designed to treat rosacea, broken and other vascular skin conditions on the face. Rosacea is a common condition among middle aged and older adults with symptoms that include flushing, persistent redness, and pimples.
Broken veins on the face, often called spider veins, are commonly visible around the nose and cheeks. This high-powered laser is also used to treat other skin discolorations, including a variety of pigmented spots. Lina Valiukaite, our Medical Aesthetician at Abramson Rejuvenation Spa in Atlanta, GA, has had advanced training in the use of Excel V laser skin rejuvenation and has had tremendous success in treating rosacea and other pigmented conditions on the face.
During the Excel V laser treatment a cool tip glides over the gel placed on the skin minimizing discomfort. Excel V uses a unique technology that allows for intense treatments without the pain of traditional laser systems. The laser will be targeted on the areas of skin designated for rejuvenation, where it will work to provide the skin with a healthier, more even tone.
Most patients with rosacea or broken facial veins will require an average of 3 treatments to achieve the best results. Redness and swelling is expected and generally lasts 1 to 2 days. Improvement to skin is immediate, but over time the redness and vessels may re-occur. In those instances, a repeat treatment may be required every 2 to 3 years.
If you are experiencing any type discoloration on your face you should seek advice from our licensed Medical Aesthetician, Lina Valiukaite. She can suggest the right treatment for your individual skin type and condition. The Abramson Rejuvenation Center is located at Abramson Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Atlanta, GA.
