Facial Vessels


Facial vessels tend to appear as twisted, unsightly additions to our skin. These vessels are not only unpleasant to look at but painful as well. At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, we’re here to help those struggling with this issue by providing the Photorejuvenation IPL laser system. This treatment was designed to improve the appearance of facial vessels while minimizing any pain and discomfort during the process.

What Causes Facial Vessels?

Broken blood vessels on the face are enlarged blood vessels that occur just beneath the surface of the skin. Typically, these facial vessels appear as red, web-shaped lines that usually cluster around the nostrils and other parts of the face. These vessels can also commonly be found on the legs, but can generally appear just about anywhere on the body. Most of the time, these vessels don’t cause any symptoms. However, they can be painful for some and an unwelcome sight for most.

Photorejuvenation for Facial Vessels

Illuminate Plastic Surgery is proud to offer treatment with the Cynosure Photorejuvenation IPL device. This system is one of the most sophisticated lasers available for cosmetic surgery treatments. When you come in for a photorejuvenation consultation, we will discuss your goals for the procedure and what you can expect. During the treatment process itself, we will utilize a special handpiece to treat a small area to gauge your skin’s response to the laser. If treatment is shown to be effective, we will continue the procedure over the rest of the targeted areas until your facial vessels are properly addressed.

Treatment Outcome

You will notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin with each photorejuvenation treatment from our world-class Cynosure device.* Within a few sessions, you can expect a more even skin tone, a decrease in the appearance of unwanted skin pigmentation, and reduced facial vessel quantities.* After the recommended number of photorejuvenation treatments, you should notice a dramatic difference when it comes to the evenness of skin tone and the presence of spots and discolorations on your face.*
