What Are Facial Blood Vessels?
Facial blood vessels which are visible and enlarged are commonly caused by:
- Diffused Redness (Rosacea) which appears as frequent redness of the face, or flushing
- Telangiectasia are fine, linear red blood vessels on the nose and cheeks. The most common type is a Spider Angioma which has a central red spot and reddish extensions which radiate outwards like a spider’s web
- Port-Wine Stains are pink or purple/red skin discolorations caused by a congenital vascular malformation
Dr. Friedman’s Treatment Approach to Facial Blood Vessels
Dr. Friedman treats facial blood vessels with lasers, as they can target the blood vessels with precision, while leaving the overlying skin intact.
In our clinic we perform blood vessel removal treatments with the following lasers:
- Pulse-Dye Laser
- YAG Laser
Certain blood vessels may require the use of two different lasers in one treatment session.
At your consultation, Dr. Friedman will first diagnose your type of blood vessel and will then create a personalized treatment plan for you.
