Broken Capillaries and Vessels
Facial red veins, spider veins or telangiectasia are tiny blood vessels (capillaries) which run close to the skin’s surface. They look like thin red or occasionally purple or blue threads that often occur around the nose, across the cheeks and chin. The resulting red, web-shaped appearance gives them their common name, spider veins. Vascular lesions emerge when the blood vessels become enlarged which causes the veins to appear broken.
At Buff and Bare, we offer a targeted solution for the clearance of red veins
Red veins are caused by overexposure to the sun, drastic changes in weather, changes in pressure, excessive alcohol consumption, environmental irritants, rosacea, hormonal changes, or simply genetics. Depending on the type of vessel we may choose to treat with advanced medical-grade IPL or utilise Nd: YAG. Following a thorough consultation, we will choose the best technology for your treatment.
- Spider veins can occur even if you’re young
- The most typical cause of unwanted facial veins is the normal thinning of skin that comes with age.
- Women are more commonly affected than men
- Heredity and genetics are a common cause of facial veins
