A great facial vein treatment at last! Dr. Guarnieri uses a state-of-the-art facial vein instrument designed specifically to treat the small, thin blood vessels that can develop on the face and nose, marring an otherwise great appearance. Small red dots on the skin known as cherry hemangiomas respond as well. This unique instrument sends small pulses of microwave current into the vessel, targeting only the vessel and erasing it 1 millimeter at a time. We even successfully treat facial veins that have been poorly treated elsewhere by laser or IPL (Intermittent Pulse Light) therapy. There is virtually no down time and the treatment typically takes 15 to 20 minutes.
