Facial Veins Q & A

What are spider veins?

Your face has many veins that supply blood to your skin and deep tissues. In most cases, these veins are hard to see. But some men and women develop facial spider veins.

Unlike varicose veins, spider veins are thin and usually flat. They often have a blotchy or web-like appearance. Spider veins are generally not a sign of a medical problem. But they can be difficult to conceal, even if you cover them with cosmetics.

What causes visible facial veins?

People with a fair complexion might have more noticeable veins. They can also become prominent as you age. During the aging process, your skin thins and loses elasticity. Underlying veins can start to push against the surface of your skin.

Many women develop spider veins due to hormonal changes. Pregnancy often increases your risk of vein issues. At Vein Institute, your expert provider can determine what's causing your spider veins. 

Can I get rid of unsightly facial veins?

If you're troubled by facial spider veins, you might be tempted to change your skin care routine. But aggressive skin care can worsen the problem. Spider veins are located close to the surface of your skin. They can easily become irritated by facial scrubbing or picking. 

Many retailers sell special creams for spider veins. But these products are seldom useful. The only way to get rid of your spider veins is through targeted treatment from a vein specialist.

What treatments are available?

At Vein Institute, you can receive a personalized consultation. Your provider examines your skin thoroughly. Next, they help you choose a treatment that's right for you. 

If you have large spider veins, your provider may suggest sclerotherapy. This simple, pain-free procedure takes place in the office. Your provider injects a special fluid into the affected veins. This fluid causes your spider veins to collapse and disappear.

Other cosmetic treatments can also rejuvenate your facial skin. Vein Institute offers both Botox and JUVEDERM. Botox smooths your skin and prevent wrinkles, while JUVEDERM plumps up your skin to soften creases. These treatments help diminish the appearance of spider veins.
