Facial Capillaries and Veins

What are the Causes of Facial Veins?

Capillaries are the smallest of the blood vessels, however, with the right treatment, you can not only get rid of them for good, but also prevent them from continuously appearing on the skin in the future. Broken blood vessels can happen to anyone at any age, including children. The risk factor will vary from person to person, whereas each case is unique. There are several causes of facial veins that include:

  • Rosacea     
  • Pregnancy and Genetics
  • Changes in weather
  • Changes in pressure
  • Sun exposure
  • Blowing nose too hard or sneezing
  • Injuries
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Environmental aggravations
  • Inflammatory conditions (acne scars)
  • Hormonal imbalances & Ageing

Treatment Options for Facial Veins

At Novomed there are a range of treatment options available. Usually, a doctor can diagnose facial veins by conducting a visual examination. After the examination, the doctor will decide the most suitable method of treatment. Common treatments for facial veins are as follows:

  • Sclerotherapy

Is a minimally invasive treatment that uses injections of sclerosing agents to rapidly eliminate capillaries and spider veins.

  • IPL Photofacial (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy)

This treatment uses special lights to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin (dermis) without damaging the top layer of the skin (epidermis). Several sessions of IPL Photofacial may be required for facial vein treatment.

Benefits of Facial Veins Treatment

Broken facial capillaries do not fade away naturally, nor will they heal. Facial veins require treatment in order for them to repair and fade over time. The best treatment will be determined by a doctor after examination. The solution is unique and customized to each patient’s individual requirements. Some benefits of this treatment include:

  • Renewal of skin texture
  • Fading of redness
  • Fight signs of ageing
  • Removal of broken capillaries
  • Balance of skin tone
