Cost of Facial Vein Treatments
There are a number of factors that will influence the cost of treatment for your facial veins. These include the type of treatment, the amount of sessions, the type of doctor, and the kind of facial veins you have.
Electrosurgery This technique uses electrical current to destroy the faulty veins. The average cost of the treatment is based on the size of the treated area and can range from $200-$500 per treatment.
Pulsed Dye Laser This laser uses intense pulses of light to target the blood vessels and destroy the faulty veins. The cost can range in between $100-$2000 and is determined by the size of the area treated.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy Pulses of broadband light are used to penetrate deep within the skin to target the vascular lesions. The average price ranges from $350-$600 per treatment. The number of treatment sessions that you will require will vary depending on your skin type, the colour of your skin and the severity of your condition. Generally patients can see some improvement after the first treatment. However, for best results, patients generally need 3-5 treatments every 4-6 weeks.
Specialists Provide Individualized Cost Estimates Schedule a consultation with your skin care professional to receive a more accurate estimate for the costs required to treat your facial veins. The majority of facial vein treatments are considered elective cosmetic procedures and are not normally covered by health insurance. However, if your facial veins are associated with another underlying condition, you may be qualified for coverage. Your skin care professional may also offer various financing options to help reduce the cost of your facial vein procedure.
