What causes facial veins?
Facial Thread Veins are also facial facial spider veins or broken veins. They are visible red blood vessels, which appear close to the surface of the skin. They are most frequently located around the nose, cheeks and chin and tend to become more noticeable with age.
There are many causes:
- Sun damage from repeated exposure to UVA (the Sun or sun beds)
- Extremes of temperature
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy
- Family history
- Topical steroid creams
Visible veins on the face have also been associated with Rosacea, a common skin condition.
These veins will not disappear without treatment and will often become more prominent over time.
How do you treatment spider veins?
At Good Skin Days, we use the latest laser technology available in order to treat you. We have a brand new 2019 model Asclepion QuadroStarPRO, which is a yellow laser designed specifically to treat vascular conditions.
The yellow laser works more effectively than any other laser available to treat Facial Thread Veins, by using a wavelength of light that ignores the skin and other tissues and target only the blood vessels.
The yellow laser light is absorbed by the red pigment (haemoglobin) contained within the blood cells in the thread veins. The light releases heat energy within the vessel, causing the tiny vessel’s walls to stick together and close off to blood flow. The sealed vessel then disappears as it is naturally reabsorbed by the body.
This process is called photothermolysis, meaning that the laser light only interacts with the unwanted vessel and completely bypasses the surface of the skin.
Prior to Treatment
To ensure that you receive the best possible results, preparation prior to treatment is a vital part of the process.
- Please ensure the treatment site is free from make-up, perfume and fake tan.
- Please inform your practitioner if you have had any sun / sun bed exposure in the last eight weeks.
- Please notify the clinic in good time of any medications that you are taking. Taking certain prescription medications (for example, Roaccutane) may mean that you cannot be treated.
- Please notify your Practitioner if your medical status changes or if you become pregnant.
