Bye-bye blemishes.

It’s easy to see spider veins and red spots, particularly on someone’s face. Dozens of tiny veins twist, dilate, and break, creating red, bruise-like spots on the face. Unlike bruises, spider veins don’t heal and disappear over time.

Red Spots & Facial Veins Atlanta, GA

Red Spots & Facial Vein Treatment Atlanta, GA, MetroDerm, PC

We use intense-pulsed light therapy, or IPL, the Gemini laser, and KTP lasers to treat spider veins and red spots on the face. Patients often see results within four to six weeks following treatment. Typically, two treatments are all that are required to achieve significant improvement in broken blood vessels, and patients experience only mild discomfort during the brief procedure. During a brief consultation, one of our experts will evaluate your skin to determine which laser treatment is most appropriate.

Intense pulsed light therapy, or IPL, is based on emitting high-intensity pulses of filtered light to penetrate the skin and rid various conditions with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Using light filters, the energy of the intense pulsed light can be focused on specific targets. Although the IPL is not really a laser, it is a powerful tool. It erases mild sun damage, freckles, and light brown spots on the face, neck, and chest. In fact, many patients report the added bonus of a reduction in pore size, smoother skin, and fewer wrinkles. With IPL, we can treat your unwanted skin discolorations, minimize the appearance of rosacea and blood vessels under the skin, and control acne.

The KTP laser is an innovative tool that provides the best possible outcomes for patients. The KTP laser removes spider veins on the face, red lesions on the face and body, brown lesions (raised like liver spots or skin tags), and brown spots (flat like freckles or sun damage spots). Visible results can be seen after a single treatment. However, it could take multiple treatments depending on severity.

The KTP laser works by selectively targeting irregular spots on the skin. Specifically, the laser targets red (hemoglobin) and brown (melanin) areas on the skin. While treating redness on the skin, the energy of the KTP laser gently coagulates the blood vessels below the skin’s surface. This collapses those visible blood vessels and decreases the generalized redness seen in rosacea. While treating lentigines (sun spots), the energy of the KTP targets the melanocytes presents in the epidermis.

Treatment with the KTP laser does not take long; the length of the treatment depends on the area being treated. Depending on what you are treating, you may have gel applied to your skin. The treatment itself is not painful and you will be ready to go immediately after the treatment.

There is no downtime after treatment with the KTP laser. It does not cause bruising or excessive redness, and most patients return to work or social events immediately after their treatment. Brown spots may become temporarily darker following the treatment. To remove blood vessels or brown spots, one to two sessions are usually needed. Some patients see results in a single session and only need a one treatment; other patients require a series of treatments.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

TESTIMONIALS

“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”
Robyn C.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”

Christye N.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.
“I have always had the best of care from Dr. Niren. I’ve been going to her since 1986, and I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and the time she spends with me.”
Debbie J.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”

Robert H.
