Facial Vein Causes and Treatments


Let the vein doctors at Goldman Vein Institute help treat your facial veins

Facial veins, also known as thread veins, are commonly found on the face around the nose and cheeks. The small veins are often reddish or purple, and may be referred to as “capillary veins” or “broken veins.”

How Facial Veins Develop

Just like other types of veins, facial veins don’t have one root cause; however, there are several common causes that can lead to the development of facial veins in men and women:

  • Sun exposure: If you’ve spent a great deal of time in the sun, you’re at a greater risk of developing facial veins.
  • Family history: Do other individuals in your family have facial veins? If yes, then you may develop facial veins as well.
  • Age: As people age, facial veins can begin to develop or become more prominent.

Treatment Options for Facial Veins

While facial veins may look unsightly, they do not have health complications – no matter the size. The vein specialists at Goldman Vein Institute can help treat facial veins through a variety of different treatments. Similar to spider veins, the treatment for facial veins can be sclerotherapy.

Our team also recommends that you get facial spa treatments such as microdermabrasion, oxygen facials and dermaplaning after the sclerotherapy treatments to help prevent new facial veins from forming. Dermaplaning is something that is considered as plastic surgery, and it would be best to visit a plastic surgeon to get a procedure like this done. You may be asking: Where in Las Vegas can I get plastic surgery procedures done? Stephen M. Miller’s plastic surgery is located in Las Vegas and offers many different treatments, including dermaplaning.
