WHAT CAUSES VISIBLE FACIAL VESSELS?

Visible facial vessels are often embarrassing and can impact self-esteem. Many different factors contribute to the appearance of abnormal veins on the face. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Prolonged sun exposure
  • Age
  • Facial injuries
  • Certain medical conditions

UV rays from the sun cause collagen to break down, which results in facial veins, especially among people with lighter skin. As we get older, our skin get thinner and your veins weaken. A facial injury or even scrubbing your face too hard can break small veins and cause them to enlarge. If you suffer from rosacea, lupus and/or allergies, you may also develop visible veins on your face.

WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS?

Spider veins are small dilated blood vessels that occur close to the skin, and are usually found near the nostrils, on the tip of the nose, in front of the ears and sometimes on the cheeks. As we age and our skin loses volume, the skin becomes more translucent and these blood vessels become more evident. Genetics can play a role and sun damage can exacerbate spider veins. This is a cosmetic concern that does not include symptoms or medical risks. Having said that, many people wish to remove the spider veins on their face and we provide non-surgical treatments.
