What are facial veins?
Quite simply, facial veins are dilated blood vessels close to the surface of your skin. Facial veins often show up as a patchwork of web-like spider veins across your cheeks and nose or blue-green marks around your eyes or temples.
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are enlarged, distorted veins that are often visible beneath your skin’s surface and are typically found in your legs, where your blood is prone to pooling. Varicose veins often develop with age or as a result of pregnancy, weight, or long hours standing.
How are facial and leg varicose veins treated?
For erasing facial and varicose veins from your skin’s surface, Dr. Babaali turns to several products that provide noninvasive and effective treatment:
Drawing on intense pulsed light, the Cutera XEO laser therapy breaks up the veins underneath your skin without causing damage to your skin’s surface.
T he Excel V is slightly different from the XEO in that it delivers treatment using two different wavelengths, which allows Dr. Babaali to tailor the intense pulsed light with precision.
Radiofrequency ablation, or RFA, uses heat to destroy the offending veins. During an RFA procedure, Dr. Babaali inserts a catheter into your vein and directs radiofrequency
energy through the catheter to heat up the vein. The vein collapses, and your body naturally absorbs the remnants.
VenaSeal is a new, FDA-approved treatment for varicose veins that relies on injecting a clear polymer liquid into your diseased vein, cutting it off from functioning. Again, your body disposes of the vein naturally.
With Asclera, Dr. Babaali injects a chemical called polidocanol into your spider or varicose veins, which irritates the lining, causing your blood to clot — in effect, blocking the
vein from further use. T his treatment is also FDA-approved.
Dr. Babaali uses a rotating catheter to stimulate the lining of your vein and, simultaneously, administers medicine that causes the vein to coagulate and collapse. Your body then reroutes your blood through healthier vessels. ClariVein is a one-time, FDA-approved treatment.
