SCHEDULE YOUR CONSULTATION AT ALLURE ASETHETICS
You’ve seen those small red veins on your face, hands, and legs. When they appear on you’re face they’re called “Facial Telangiectasias.” They are broken or dilated blood vessels or capillaries that are commonly found on the face, nose, chin, and cheek. Telangiectasias can also be found on the other parts of the body such as the legs, chest, back, arms, legs, and lower extremities. They are typically very small — smaller than a millimeter in diameter — and are red to bluish in color. They are superficially located underneath the skin and are considered vascular lesions that are usually benign.
The best way to determine whether Venus Versa™ is capable of giving you the results for facial telangiectasias you desire is to view results.
There are several factors which contribute to the development of facial vessels. The most common factors for telangiectasis are the following: genetics, prolonged sun and wind exposure, medications that can dilate vessels, pregnancy, excessive alcohol use, trauma to the skin, surgical incisions, and acne.
The Venus Versa™ laser is specifically designed to treat various types facial vessels and vascular lesions called facial telangiectasia. The laser precisely targets these vessels with heat-energy. The targeted oxyhemoglobin (red blood cells) inside the visibly broken capillaries absorb the laser’s energy and are heated up, coagulated, or closed down. This process is called photothermolysis, and results in the disintegration of the vessels.
As a result of this light-based energy exchange between the laser and capillary, many patients will experience clearance of the telangiectasias on the face, nose, chin, and forehead within hours of the initial treatment. In addition, the thermal effect of the Venus Versa™ laser on the skin causes the body’s immune response to send scavenger cells, macrophages, to the treatment site. Therefore, over a period of 3 to 6 weeks, these macrophages work to absorb the treated capillaries, reducing the vascular lesions or facial telangiectasia. Depending on the severity of these broken vessels, a series of 3 to 4 Venus Versa™ treatments are recommended.
The patented Chill-tip is only available on the Venus Versa™ laser system. This makes the treatment therapeutic and safe because more energy can be delivered to the targeted telangiectasis without injuring the surrounding, healthy, non-vascularized skin cells. This unique chill-tip also makes the Venus Versa™ laser treatment much less painful.
People say that treatments with the Venus Versa™ are relatively pain-free, simple, and quick. All treatments begin with a consultation to discuss your desired results, expectations, and aesthetic goals. We’ll go over the exact areas and lines you want treated and will explain what a procedure for that area will entail, including number of sessions needed and costs. During the initial consultation, Heather Schwartzmann PA-C will take a medical history to ensure there will be no adverse reactions to the Venus Versa™ IPL laser.
The laser is placed on top of the skin, and turned on. It will emit several short pulses of light. Most people akin the feeling to a tiny band snapping on the skin, and find it is noticeable, but virtually pain-free. You’re free to either sit or recline during treatment.
The entire appointment should take less than an hour, including time for a consultation.
Afterwards we will give you a handout of things to do or avoid after your treatments.
