Leg & Facial Veins

Leg & Facial Veins

Broken capillaries and blood vessels, commonly called spider veins, appear just below the surface of the skin and are most noticeable on the chin, nose, legs, and cheeks. Usually appearing by the age of 30, these vessels do not cause pain, but can cause anxiety as they become more noticeable. Pittsburgh’s best Dermatologists at the Golla Center for Dermatology can treat these unwanted visible veins without any need for surgery at their Pittsburgh office.

Laser Treatments

Laser treatments can be an excellent method to remove unwanted veins in both women and men in the Pittsburgh area. At the Golla Center for Dermatology we offer two laser treatment options to remove unwanted blood vessels in the face, with very few side effects.
Nd YAG Laser

Nd: YAG Laser

The YAG laser sends a small pulse of energy into the unwanted blood vessel which heats the blood and causes clotting thus causing the vein to collapse. This method is best for delicate veins around your nose. We recommend one to five treatments for ideal results.

Vbeam® Laser

This pulse-dye laser emits beams of light which close down unsightly blood vessels. It is usually most effective on larger areas of the face, chest, or neck. It is also the best option for combating rosacea. We recommend three to five sessions for ideal results.

Sclerotherapy

When combating spider veins this is one of the safest and most common methods employed. An ultra-fine needle is used to inject a special liquid directly into your veins. Special compression garments are worn following the procedure to maximize results of the procedure. On average three to four treatments are required in order to be effective however the number can go as high as 12 for severe cases. Treatments are usually performed every four weeks. Temporary bruising is possible, but you should be able to resume your normal routine the following day.
