Do you wish you could avoid wearing concealer for just one day? Or forever? Tiny veins, also called thread veins, spider veins or vascular lesions, on the face and nose is a common skin concern and can affect up to 4 out of 10 people. They can be very frustrating for people who suffer from them and can be triggered by a variety of factors which we discuss below. Being aware of what can cause this skin condition will help to reduce reoccurrence following successful treatment.
We explain the causes as well as the leading treatment for facial and nasal spider veins so you can look forward to vein-free, clear skin.
What Causes Facial and Nasal Spider Veins?
For both men and women, facial spider veins are very common and are typically caused by one or a combination of the following factors:
- Too much sun exposure
- Too much alcohol
- Venous deficiency (increased pressure on the blood vessel walls)
- Lifestyle choices (affect how well the veins function)
- Exposure to extreme hot or cold
- Skin thinning products (eg moisturisers that contain AHA’s)
Avoiding sun exposure, reducing your intake of alcohol, not smoking and taking care to not have your shower too hot will all help to avoid accentuating your skin condition.
How Do I Treat Facial and Nasal Veins?
Laser treatment is widely accepted as the leading option for treating facial and nasal spider veins. Skin peels and skin care regimes cannot treat vascular lesions. At Detail Smoother Skin, we specialise in the clearance of vascular lesions and recommend the GentleMax Pro Laser. The GentleMax Pro laser has been studied in numerous clinical trials and there is no downtime, so you don’t need to worry about taking time off work.
Most people need between 2 and 4 sessions to achieve clearance. Some vascular lesions may re-appear over time, for which a single maintenance treatment can be done at the first sign of appearance.
