Facial Veins

Back to Conditions

Facial veins can affect your self-esteem

These blue and red spider-like lines, which appear primarily on the face, are small, open blood vessels that sit close to the skin’s surface and enlarge over time. They may cause embarrassment and affect the way you think you’re perceived. More importantly, their appearance might indicate a more serious dermatological problem like rosacea or serious sun damage.

A number of factors may be giving you visible facial veins

If you’ve noticed more red spots, red lines and broken capillaries on your face, the most likely cause is simply genetics or aging. Constant exposure to extreme weather, sun damage and even alcohol consumption can cause this condition as well.

Luckily, there are treatments available

We use the Excel V vascular laser to treat spider veins, minimize redness and bring back your confidence. It’s non-intrusive and uses a cooling feature to minimize discomfort. Talk to a Pacific Derm dermatologist to see if this treatment is right for you.
