What are facial veins?

Facial veins, also known as spider veins or broken capillaries, are small, dilated blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin on the face. Their web-like or branching pattern characterizes them. These veins can appear on various parts of the face, including the cheeks, nose, chin, and around the eyes.


What causes facial veins?

Several factors can contribute to the development of facial veins:

  • Genetics: A family history of facial veins can increase your likelihood of developing them.
  • Sun Exposure: Prolonged and unprotected exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can damage the delicate blood vessels in the skin, leading to the development of facial veins.
  • Aging: As we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity and natural collagen, making it more susceptible to the appearance of facial veins.
  • Rosacea: Individuals with rosacea, a skin condition characterized by redness and flushing of the face, are more prone to developing facial veins.
  • Alcohol Consumption: Excessive alcohol consumption can cause blood vessels to dilate, making them more visible on the face.

How are facial veins treated?

  • Laser Therapy: Laser treatments, such as pulsed dye lasers or intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, target the pigment in the blood vessels, causing them to fade away gradually. This non-invasive procedure is highly effective in treating facial veins.
