How To Treat Facial Veins

Do you have visible veins on your face? This can point to stress, aging, or tiredness, but did you know that there are simple, effective, and non-invasive ways to treat these veins? Learn more below:

Characteristics of Facial Veins

Otherwise known as spider veins, most facial veins are red or blue, and are pronounced by their clusters on sections of the face. They can appear anywhere in the facial region and are most popular on the nose, cheeks and chin.

Factors That Affect Spider Veins

Veins in the facial region can be caused by a number of factors including:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Sun Exposure
  • Skin Color
  • Skin Conditions
  • Treatment Options for Facial Veins

Veins in the face can be treated with a number of options including:

  • Schlerotherapy – sclerosant solutions are injected deep into the veins to reduce the size and appearance in the outer area, and especially those found under the eyes or on the temple region.

  • Veinwave Radiofrequency – was pioneered by a vascular surgeon and is beneficial for vein removal that Schlerotherapy cannot treat. Pulses of radio waves are applied through a handheld device to the targeted area of the face. The therapy provides dramatic results and work immediately. The treatment is also quick and relatively pain-free, taking just around 15 minutes.

  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment – as the name suggests, an intense light is pulsated through the visible vein area, and it clarifies the skin in minutes. The bonus is that this therapy also has the potential to eliminate other skin imperfections in the treatment area including age spots and wrinkles. It’s one of the revolutionary new options for skin imperfections, and best of all it’s non-invasive and pain free.

All of these steps are feature virtually no recovery time. Cover-up makeup can be worn a few days after each technique, so you can go about your day.
