Daily or recreational sun exposure, the passing of time, alcohol, and genetics…suddenly you start to notice the appearance of small, tiny red blood vessels around your nose and cheeks. They grow larger in size and greater in number. You wonder if there is anything that you can do about it. You try fade creams and cover-ups, but the veins only seem to get worse.
Maybe you have a red birthmark called a port-wine stain that you find embarrassing, and you’d like to do something about it. Well, now you can…
At the Dermatology Laser Center & MediSpa, Dr. Snyder offers his patients a state-of-the-art, safe, gentle, fast, and simple solution for removing those undesirable red blood vessels of your face or your unwanted port-wine stain.
Dr. Snyder’s Approach
Dr. Snyder offers you “Optimized Light Photorejuvenation”, featuring a state-of-the-art ICON Aesthetic System’s MaxG™ Optimized Light™ handpiece which provides a safe and effective non-surgical approach to removing your unwanted red spider veins and tiny blood vessels around your nose and cheeks, as well as an unwanted port-wine stain. This cosmetic treatment uses gentle pulses of light that pass through the top layer of your skin and selectively target your red blood vessels without harming the surrounding skin tissue.
You can elect to have the ICON Aesthetic System treatment even on the same day of your initial consultation. In fact, the treatments are so fast, that many patients can have them performed during their lunch hour and return back to work the same day. Typically, treatments last from 10-20 minutes, as only the unwanted blood vessels are treated, and most patients feel little to no discomfort at all. Patients are often surprised to discover how easy and painless these treatments are.
Most of the time, the smaller spider veins of the face can be treated and removed in as little as one treatment, and results are usually noticed immediately following your treatment. Larger, more prominent red veins may take two to three treatments for complete removal. Depending on the size and type of port-wine stain you may have, it typically requires a series of treatments to achieve fading and complete removal, usually spaced from 6-8 weeks apart.
The ICON Aesthetic System treatments can also be used in combination with BOTOX Cosmetic, dermal fillers like Radiesse and Belotero Balance, Photorejuvenation, Sublime™, Exilis™, eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation™, microdermabrasion, and other rejuvenation procedures and products that are all part of a complete anti-aging program Dr. Snyder will customize for you.
