Facial Spider Veins: The Facts about Facial Telangiectasias
Contrary to popular belief, Spider Veins aren’t just visible on your legs. Small spider veins called Facial Telangiectasias can appear on the nose, cheeks, and chin and are common in healthy, active adults who may not experience vein issues on other areas of their body.
Much like spider veins, Facial Telangiectasias can be influenced by hormones, but they are most often caused by prolonged sun exposure. Because of this, they are common in people who have worked outside most of their lives and also in women following pregnancy or the use of hormone replacement therapy. They are typically red and purple blood vessels that occur in patches on the face.
These tiny spider veins do not pose a serious health threat, cause no symptoms and are always considered a cosmetic problem. However, if you’re tired of covering them up with makeup or creams, several Midwest Vein Center locations offer a scientifically-tested Surface Laser treatment that can help you see significant improvement.
