FACIAL VEINS: Annoying hard to cover veins? Affordable cost effective treatment...Auckland, Christchurch.
Dr Beulink’s Personal Comments – Facial Veins
I have found these treatments to be a well tolerated, safe and effective means to treat discrete facial veins. I cannot, however, treat a generalised blushed or flushed cheek appearance (no visible veins).
I have been treating facial veins since 1992. In my experience, these two types of treatment give results that are at least comparable to, and more cost effective than laser or light based ( IPL) treatments. I do not use laser or IPL to treat thread veins. Laser and IPL treatments are expensive and always require multiple treatments. Patients who have come to see me, having previously had laser or IPL treatment, are usually disgruntled with the lack of results and high cumulative costs they have incurred.
With Radiofrequency treatment, facial veins are instantly removed, rather than needing to wait several days or even weeks for them to fade away as with other types of treatment.
In my hands, the cosmetic Radio surgery treatment is by far the most effective treatment for spider naevi veins (small high pressure, red spot/flare usually on the face or chest, often appearing on the nose or directly under the eyes and may even occur as a persisting red dot on a child's face).
Micro-sclerotherapy is perfect for the larger calibre red or purple veins that often occur on the nose, cheek or chin area. This is particularly so in the case of males.
Micro-sclerotherapy has become somewhat of a lost art form in these days of machines and technology. I believe very few doctors have the knowledge or ability to perform this treatment now, which is a shame as it is so effective and relatively cheap.
It requires a very steady hand, impeccable eye sight, and a knack to be able to slot a micro needle into an even more micro vein, to say the least!
The huge advantage of micro-sclerotherapy is that when a vein is injected, the solution has a flow on effect to "down stream" veins. With only one entry point, multiple veins can often be treated, and at the time of treatment, due to the flushing effect, areas can be instantly recognised as having been treated. Facial veins are not just simply a 2 dimensional entity running along the skin surface, but rather a 3 dimensional network running all at differing depths. The solution has the ability to flow through this 3D network, something surface based technologies can not do.
