It’s possible to banish small varicose veins, spider veins, and other common vein concerns without any invasive measures or downtime thanks to advanced Lumecca photofacials at Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine in Irvine, CA. True to its name, a photofacial is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment that stimulates the skin with intense pulses of light. This intense light gets absorbed deep within to dissolve targeted veins while also spurring your skin’s natural healing response and triggering the growth of vibrant new collagen and elastin — all with minimal to no downtime.
What Happens During a Vein Treatment?
You will relax while we apply the Lumecca IPL handheld device to your treatment areas. The device transmits intense pulses of light to your skin without breaking the surface. We will slowly work our way around your target areas, stimulating your skin with IPL’s healing energy. The light gets absorbed by the hemoglobin in your veins, causing the targeted veins to collapse and gradually fade from view in the days to weeks following your treatment.
