Treatment of Blood Vessels in La Jolla
If you suffer from embarrassment due to noticeable, red blood vessels that spiderweb across your face, then you are not alone. Telangiectasias or spider veins are extremely common. These are caused by the dilation of the small blood vessels on your face. The most common facial blood vessel locations are:
- In the folds of the nose
- On the rim of the nostrils
- On the cheeks
These unsightly red spots are usually caused by sun exposure or rosacea. Though they tend to be completely harmless, at FACESplus in San Diego, we know that prominent blood vessels may make it difficult for you to feel confident putting your best face forward.

IPL Skin Treatments are FDA-cleared, providing non-invasive, dramatic results for the treatment of facial blood vessels. IPL uses Photorejuvenation to transmit a broad spectrum of light that is absorbed by the targeted blood vessels, which destroys the vessel without damaging the healthy skin around it. The blood vessel is then absorbed by the body, leaving the skin blemish-free. IPL treats the full face, neck, chest or hands with no downtime necessary. Usually, four to six sessions at three week intervals will successfully address your unsightly blood vessels.
Laser Genesis heats the upper dermis well below the surface of your skin, generating heat in dilated blood vessels and capillaries. The heated blood vessel collapses and is reabsorbed by the body. Laser Genesis is a safe, discrete and effective treatment for spider vein or blood vessel treatment. Results tend to be subtle yet consistent after each treatment. Four or five treatments are usually enough to give you clearer, more youthful skin. After Laser Genesis treatment, there are no embarrassing or painful side effects, such as skin irritation or bruising. Treatments are so gentle, they can be performed without topical gels or anesthetics.
The laser is the gold standard treatment for vein removal. Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. The laser uses a focused beam of light to heat up the small vein. The laser destroys the unsightly vein, and the body reabsorbs it over time, leaving little or no trace of it over time.
