Pre and post V-Beam Laser facial treatment
Lots of people, especially fair-skinned individuals sunny climates (like New York), will build up regions of the face area as time passes where superficial veins and capillaries within the skin become enlarged and highly visible. Due to their typically irregular and spidery appearance, these superficial cutaneous vessels are generally known as ‘spider veins’.
The medical term with this phenomenon is ‘telangiectasia’, that is basically Greek for ‘the stretching from the very finish of the bloodstream vessel’. And that’s basically what ‘spider veins’ are. They occur most often within the central face, particularly around the anterior cheekbones and also at the bottom of the nose. Many people develop very prominent blue veins around the dorsum and tip from the nose, where they’re hard to hide.
Rosacea is really a condition of the skin in which the central face (nose, cheekbones, face, central brow) progressively turns red and develops numerous fine telangiectasias. These areas easily become flushed, particularly after physical effort, eating spicy food, or getting a glass of vino. Rosacea has typically been given topical agents and dental antibiotics, however most sufferers experience improvement only if the medications have been in use, with return of rosacea when the treatment methods are stopped. For a lot of patients, rosacea is rather resistant against topical and dental medications.
The reason for blue veins and rosacea isn’t completely understood, and seems to become multi-factorial. Adding factors can be a genetic predisposition, the chronic utilization of topical steroid agents, and solar harm to the skin that progressively accumulates over a long time. Rosacea occurs most generally in warm climates where individuals get a lot of year-round exposure to the sun.
These conditions can possibly be avoided (partly) through the avoidance of excessive contact with ultraviolet radiation (the sun’s rays, that tanning bed), the avoidance of chronic topical steroid use, by the daily utilization of a higher-SPF facial sunscreen. In some instances, telangiectasias are connected having a systemic autoimmune disorder, for example scleroderma. When a person develops facial telangiectasias and/or rosacea, these conditions generally don’t spontaneously disappear.
So how do you eliminate rosacea, or my facial blue veins, or both?
The perfect strategy to ‘spider veins’ and rosacea ought to be easily administered, safe for that patient, reliably effective, shouldn’t require an excessive quantity of treatments, ought to be non-invasive, and cannot possess a prolonged period of recovery.
Here’s what’s promising: this type of vein treatment exists. The V-Beam Laser, a pulsed-dye laser developed particularly to treat cutaneous vascular disorders, can completely eliminate most facial ‘spider veins’, usually in 2 to 3 treatments (large regions of lengthy-standing blue veins may need more treatments), and may turn back cutaneous manifestations of rosacea too. Additionally, the laser energy pulse delivered through the V-beam continues to be modified to limit the introduction of publish-treatment bruising (purpura), an issue connected with older pulsed-dye lasers.
The V-Beam laser uses light energy of the wave length that’s particularly absorbed by structures that are reddish or crimson colored, i.e. capillaries and small arterial blood vessels and veins. The V-beam contains a Dynamic Cooling Device which sprays your skin having a cooling agent immediately before every laser pulse. This advanced technology both protects your skin from thermal energy and cuts down on the discomfort formerly connected with pulsed-dye laser facial treatment. The laser pulses are usually explained patients as feeling like ‘a rubberband snapping from the skin’. No anesthesia (topical or else) is needed.
While pulsed-dye laser technologies have been readily available for decades, pulsed-dye laser facial treatment of rosacea and facial telangiectasia wasn’t frequently performed because the laser energy tended to blow up superficial bloodstream vessels, producing facial bruising that could persist for many days. The V-Beam Laser modulates both peak energy and also the time period of the laser pulse to be able to coagulate instead of explode dermal bloodstream vessels, which enables treatments to become performed that leave little if any bruising. This advanced technology assists you to achieve significant clearance as well as complete removal of facial redness and blue veins without any ‘downtime’.
May be the V-beam Laser a ‘cure’ for rosacea?
That actually is determined by how one defines ‘cure’. If with this one means “can you get rid of the facial redness, flushing and blue veins which i enter your workplace with?”, then the reply is YES – we could completely eliminate these bits of information for a number of our patients with a number of V-beam laser light treatments. However, anyone that has experienced resolution or significant improvement in rosacea following V-beam laser facial treatment is in danger of recurrence of facial redness and flushing if they don’t do something to prevent the main risk factor: ultraviolet light (sunlight) exposure.
We highly recommend our patients ‘protect their investment’ using a high-quality, chemical-free sunscreen every day, rain or shine, summer time or winter. Hats will also be highly suggested within the summer time several weeks. Appropriate defense against damaging Ultra violet sun rays can avoid the recurrence from the facial redness and flushing connected with rosacea for many patients.
