V-Beam and IPL for blood vessels NYC
I have both systems in my office to help remove blood vessels. I prefer the V-Beam laser for the type of redness that you are describing. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
IPL or Vbeam
Vbeam is an extremely effective predictable procedure for treatment of facial veins. Downtime does includes redness/and or bruising that typically last 4-10 days. Prolonged redness may occur with continued use of anti-oxidants such as retinoids and alpha-hydroxy acids.
IPL is a customizable full facial treatment for conditions such as skin discoloration, sun damage, facial veins, textural concerns and rosacea. Some patients experience a little redness after their treatments, but it typically fades within hours or, at most, overnight.
Ultimately, speak with your provider regarding the prolonged redness for further investigation. Without a photo it is difficult to give a recommendation. A calming cream can be used post procedure to help with the redness. Best of luck!
