What is it?

Spider veins or Telangiectasis affect both men and women. iIt is caused by weakened and damaged valves in the veins, as well as hormone changes and exposure to sun. These small dilated blood vessels are usually red or purple and can appear as strands or clusters around the nose, cheeks, eyes or chin.



Here at Revita Skin Clinic, all forms of facial veins can be successfully treated using our intense pulsed light technology. The hand piece works by firing a gentle burst of light at select blood vessels beneath the skin heating it to a point where it is destroyed.

Following the treatment, the vessel will quickly collapse and be reabsorbed by the body to be flushed out by our body's natural defenses. There is little or no pain during the procedure. You may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping on the skins surface. This treatment has little to no downtime, but occasionally some redness may persist for up to 24 hours afterwards on treated area.


Depending on the severity of veins the specialist will determine how many treatments you are required during your complimentary consultation.
