Facial Spider Veins

Conditions > Bondi Vein Clinic

What are Facial Spider Veins?

Broken blood vessels on the face are enlarged blood vessels that occur just beneath the surface of the skin. The resulting red, web-shaped appearance gives them their common name; spider veins. Spider veins are commonly found on the face or legs, though they may appear anywhere on the body. Other than their appearance, spider veins do not cause any other symptoms.

Services we offer to treat the condition of Facial Spider Veins?

There is a range of treatment options available, but not all treatments work for everyone, so a person with spider veins may need to try several before finding what helps them. Treatment lines include; topical retinoid creams which may help reduce the visibility of the veins and boost health of the skin. However, they may also dry out the skin and cause itching and redness where applied. Sclerotherapy can be also used which uses injections of sclerosing agents to help spider veins disappear in a short period of time, generally a few weeks. The injected material helps seal up the blood vessels, which causes the visible blood just under the skin to disappear. Some people may experience discomfort and pain using this method, but these side effects should resolve within a few days. Other modalities include laser therapy and intense pulse light (IPL).
