Facial Vein & Rosacea Treatments Q & A

How does the Icon laser treat facial veins and rosacea?

Facial veins and rosacea are common among both men and women. Rosacea is a treatable inflammatory skin condition that can cause redness or blushing, as well as acne-like bumps in some cases. Laser technology can offer a painless long-term solution for rosacea and facial veins.

The Icon laser sends targeted light-based energy to areas affected by facial veins and redness. Once applied to the treatment area, the laser penetrates the skin reaching the visible blood vessels. The treatments work by encouraging your body’s natural healing process.

Once the laser penetrates the veins or area of redness, new cell development begins. As your facial tissue repairs itself, the appearance of facial veins and rosacea is reduced. In addition to treating redness, the Icon laser also addresses the thickening of the skin that can accompany rosacea.

The team at Cleveland Family Health will assess your specific needs and customize the Icon laser to achieve optimal results. The Icon laser is safe for all skin types. Treatments are noninvasive and can be done in as few as 30 minutes.

Is laser treatment for painful?

Icon laser treatments for facial veins and rosacea are not painful and cause minimal discomfort. The Icon laser is designed to ensure comfort and long-lasting results.

Treatments are performed after the application of a topical numbing cream, which helps prevent any pain or discomfort. You may experience a little redness immediately after treatment, but this is temporary. The Icon laser is noninvasive and requires no downtime from your everyday activities.

How long before I see results?

Many patients see results after their first treatment. However, multiple treatments may be required depending on the size of the treatment area. Treatments are usually spaced a couple weeks apart; your provider will let you know what to expect.

As new cells replace old ones, results continue to get better and you’ll notice an ongoing improvement in the appearance of facial veins and redness associated with rosacea. The team at Cleveland Family Health will discuss with you the results you might have, as well the number of recommended treatment sessions.
