What are Facial Veins?
Facial Veins (varicose veins or spider veins) are broken blood vessels on the face that occur just beneath the surface of the skin that is triggered by bad blood circulation. Facial veins can develop on anyone regardless of their age however, certain people may have a higher chance of getting them due to their hereditary gene.
What Do Facial Veins Look Like?
Varicose veins are a cluster of discoloured blue, green and red veins that are seen on the thighs, ankles, hands, arms and sometimes the face. Typically 1mm to 2mm thick and can become noticeable during different stages of a person’s life.
What Are the Causes of Facial Veins?
Some of the major causes of facial veins include genes, sun exposure, drastic changes in the weather, and/or alcohol consumption. All of these factors have the ability to dilate and enlarge the blood vessels and bring them closer to the skin thus having broken capillaries. Women may experience these veins faster than men due to different physical stresses brought on either by pregnancy and childbirth.
Treatment for Facial Veins
Ashgrove Spa offers many different remedies in order to assist in minimizing the appearance of facial veins through laser therapy and skin rejuvenation facials. Both of these services are treated with lasers to effectively treat the veins and ensure removal. The laser therapy uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy that transmits photons that are absorbed by the blood cells in the veins which, then create heat to destroy the blood vessel and thus, eliminating the vein.
The facial treatments that Ashgrove offers for facial veins to be terminated through the IPL treatment, the facial helps clear benign pigmented lesions, actinic bronzing and telangiectasias. It can reduce the redness associated with rosacea and provide rejuvenated looking skin.
