The presence of visible veins on the face is a condition for which many people seek treatment. This is usually due to the development spider veins. It is a condition that is similar to varicose veins that become enlarged and often twist and turn. Spider veins happen to smaller vessels, such as capillaries, that are located closer to the surface of the skin. Their appearance is like that of small lines that twist and turn, often with sharp corners. They can be red, blue or purple.
Rosacea is another condition that causes redness to the face, frequently appearing on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. While the exact cause of the condition is unknown, it can sometimes resemble spider veins in that blood vessels are sometimes visible. It can also resemble pimples, acne or a rash.
While neither of these conditions is likely to present any threats to an individual’s health, they can be embarrassing and have a negative effect on a person’s self-esteem. As such, many people seek facial vein treatment. The good news is that there are available treatments that can rid the face of the appearance that many individuals would prefer not to display.
Laser treatments are extremely effective and have become more widely used in recent years. They work by heating the targeted veins. This destroys them and turns them into scar tissue. The tissue is absorbed into the body during the course of the few weeks following treatment. After this healing process is complete, the veins are no longer visible.
Patients love this facial vein treatment because there is virtually no downtime involved. They are free to resume their everyday activities immediately after their session. This makes it an extremely convenient treatment option.
