Patients of all ages may deal with conditions that result in the appearance of facial veins. These broken capillaries can show up on the face as tiny red veins that do not disappear over time. This condition is also known as telangiectasia rosacea. These veins are extremely delicate and can be damaged easily as they are just beneath the upper layer of the skin. Patients who scrub their face too hard, experience excessive sun exposure or incur a facial injury may experience broken capillaries. However, the condition is not always preventable, and triggers such as rosacea can increase their appearance. Genetics also play a part in whether a patient may experience broken capillaries.
Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of telangiectasia rosacea can seek treatment options through a dermatological facility such as Seriously Skin. Our practice is equipped to help patients with all sorts of skin, hair, and nail concerns that may arise. Our professionals work hard to provide patients with a variety of treatment options for their skin needs and patients with facial veins may enjoy several solutions.
Laser vein treatment is a popular option through our practice for the treatment of facial and spider veins. This treatment is done as an outpatient procedure and it can reduce the appearance of these veins. Patients who have less severe types of facial veins may benefit from the use of concealer and make-up as a lower-cost alternative to laser therapies. However, the more severe the condition, the harder it can be to cover up with over-the-counter cosmetics.
The following treatments are used for facial veins:
- Sciton 1064 YAG
- LightSheer Duet Laser
- Sciton BBL
Patients who experience facial veins and spider veins can visit the team at Seriously Skin to find a solution to their condition. Patients can schedule a consultation visit and examination with one of our doctors to receive a proper diagnosis and discuss the options available to them for reducing or eliminating the appearance of these veins. We work hard to educate our patients and provide a variety of solutions to allow patients to take part in their dermatological care and enjoy a treatment that works best for their specific situation.
