Reddish or purple facial veins are commonly found around the nose, cheeks or around the eye area and are often referred to as capillary or broken veins. These veins are found close to the surface of the skin and resemble spider webs, which may look unsightly and can occur due to a number of causes including:
- High blood pressure
- A family history
- Skin diseases like rosacea and eczema
- Non-medical conditions such as rubbing or washing the face too hard
- Excessive sun exposure
- Tobacco or alcohol use
- Lack of exercise
In fact, pressure on veins and capillaries can be due to any condition that causes prolonged inflammation, dilation or irritation of the skin. Additionally, as skin ages these veins often become more noticeable.
Although these facial veins do not have health complications, many people choose to treat varicose veins on face. In fact, modern laser treatment for varicose veins can provide relief from these unsightly veins. One safe and effective non-surgical facial varicose veins treatments available today is considered to be sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy can minimize the unsightly appearance of spider veins. During this treatment, a varicose vein specialist uses a tiny needle to introduce an FDA-approved sclerosant into the vein, drops at a time. This gentle, yet effective medication causes the vein to collapse and close. Over time, the closed vein gets absorbed by the body and disappears.
Treatments are characterized as being virtually painless, with generally no recovery period, and most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
