Small red veins can appear when the blood vessels or capillaries close to the surface of the skin become enlarged. They then look like they have burst or are broken. These little red veins can appear all over your face. However they are particularly common on the cheeks, around the nose, and also on the chin.
The medical term used to describe facial thread veins is Telangiectasia.
There are many causes of Telangiectasia on face, but usually it’s down to one of the many types of of Rosacea.
There are several ways you can improve the appearance of red veins or thread veins on your face.
Some people suggest using topical creams, but in our experience this will only be a temporary solution.
At our clinic we believe the best thread vein treatment is with light energy from lasers. The energy produced by the laser targets the haemoglobin beneath the skin surface causing the red veins to quickly disappear. At our Dermatology Clinic in Central London we have been performing laser vein removal for almost 15 years. We only use the latest laser technologies in our clinic and can safely and successfully remove these red veins.
We help men and women with treatments for red veins and burst blood vessels. Depending on your skin’s condition, good improvement can usually be seen after the first session. However most patients will require a course of treatment ranging from 2 to 6 sessions.
If you would like to know more about your options for thread vein treatment or spider vein removal we offer complimentary face to face assessments. This will be with a registered nurse or experienced clinical practitioner. During the assessment they will examine your skin and propose a treatment plan including the cost of treatment.
You may also book a consultation to discuss treatment options for thread veins on face with one of our experienced Dermatologists.
