Get rid of stubborn blemishes that detract from your self-confidence.
Broken blood vessels on the face are enlarged blood vessels that occur just beneath the surface of the skin. The resulting red, web-shaped appearance gives them their common name, spider veins.
Spider veins are commonly found on the face or legs, though they may appear anywhere on the body. Other than their appearance, spider veins do not cause any other symptoms.

How it works
There are two ways we can treat spider veins at Perlis MedSpa and Wellness in Highland Park on the North Shore. One is by using laser therapy; this technology can selectively destroy problematic veins. However, the downside is that this treatment may cause some damage to the skin, which can cause sensitivity for a period of time after treatment.
The other spider vein treatment we offer in Highland Park is Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL. This technology uses special lights to penetrate deeper layers of the skin without damaging the skin’s top layer. Often, this treatment requires less recovery time, and results in less damage to the skin. Similar to laser therapy for spider veins, IPL may require more than one session to completely achieve your desired results.
What it Treats
- Spider Veins caused by genetics, sun exposure, changes in weather, pressure, pregnancy, alcohol consumption, or environmental irritants
- Laser Resurfacing
Works Best For...
- Small veins on the face and body
The most effective treatment option currently used by medical professionals to treat broken blood vessels is quick, virtually painless, and effective. Laser light treatment uses pulses of gentle light to heat targeted blood vessels, which causes them to collapse and leaves the surrounding skin undamaged. After treatment, tissue from the targeted blood vessels dissolves, restoring the skin to its natural appearance in a matter of days.
