Are you embarrassed by the spider veins on your nose and cheeks? If so, you might be comforted to know that you’re not alone. In fact, about half of all Canadians will develop vein issues at some point in their lives. They don’t usually pose a health risks, but visible marks on your face can be a blow to your confidence. Fortunately, there are now non-invasive methods to get rid of them.
Spider veins are actually damaged capillaries in the outermost layers of your skin. When they become dilated, they become visible. This can be caused by a number of factors, like genetics, sun damage, alcohol or the natural effects of aging. People with rosacea, a condition that causes the skin to be red and flushed, are also susceptible to spider veins.
Traditional treatments involve injecting saline solution into the veins with needles. Unfortunately, this leaves the patient bruised and sore for days. Luckily, treatments now exist that allow you to return to your normal life right away.
Laser therapy is a great option for removing the small spider veins that can appear on the face. The treatment works by targeting the dark vein with a laser. This causes selective damage to the blood vessel without touching the surrounding cells.
Laser therapy not only removes the blood that causes the capillary to be visible, it also destroys the vessel. The capillary is then reabsorbed by your body and the flow of blood gets rerouted deeper under your skin.
Here are few reasons to choose laser treatments to get rid of your facial veins.
