Facial Veins Treatment

Visible facial veins, also known as spider veins, telangiectasis, spider Angiomas or vascular lesions are dilated blood capillaries commonly found around the nose, on cheeks, chin, neck and upper chest.

Both men and women may see the appearance of veins but it is more common in women with fair skin.

As we age and our skin gets thinner it is more prone to damage due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin.

Over exposure to sun , radiation, trauma or genetics may be some of the other factors responsible for the appearance of facial veins. People suffering from Rosacea

The most popular and effective treatment for facial veins is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacials. The broadband of light is pulsed in safe parameters which are absorbed by the blood in veins forcing them to coagulate. The coagulated blood is safely eliminated as a normal metabolic process.

Small fine veins close almost immediately and some of the bigger veins go dark and grey initially and close in the following week or ten days time. More than one treatment may be required for some individuals.

IPL Photofacial treatments are non-invasive and quick with no downtime. All normal activities can be resumed following the treatment. Since sun exposure may be one of the causes of facial veins it is important to use a good broad-spectrum sunscreen following the treatment.

Some advanced skin care products help to strengthen the walls of the blood capillaries and reduce the flushing and redness. PCA skin care anti-redness serum contains red and brown algae to suppress the microcapillary hyperpermeability and dilation that lead to inflammation and appearance of spider veins.
