Broken blood vessels or facial veins are small blood vessels (capillaries) located under the skin’s surface, commonly appearing on the chin, cheeks, nose, and legs. Once broken, they appear as tiny, blue, purple, or red lines and are not painful. The capillaries bulge visibly under the skin because of the pressure caused by extra blood.

Facial veins are commonly called spider veins due to their web-shaped appearance and do not cause other symptoms. Redness may appear in small patches on the face and may spread out to the neck and chest. Most people with them become self-conscious. If left untreated, they may become worse over time.

Our state-of-the-art facial vein treatments at New Life Medical Centre can help you regain confidence, leaving your face glowing and rejuvenated. We use minimally invasive treatments to eliminate facial veins and redness, for an even-toned skin and fair complexion.

Facial veins are common in older people. Aging can cause weakened veins, causing them to expand and stretch due to damage caused by internal or external factors. Aging also makes the skin thinner, making the veins more prominent. Other factors that cause facial veins include sun damage, rosacea, genetics, high blood pressure, pregnancy, and alcohol consumption. Facial veins and redness affect both men and women.

Laser therapy and intense pulse light (IPL) are effective treatments for skin redness, spider veins, and rosacea. The laser lights are targeted the affected areas, sealing off the broken vessels causing them to collapse, and the body eliminating them naturally.

Intense pulse lights (IPL) penetrate into deep skin layers, destroying the damaged blood vessels without damaging the outer layer of the skin. The destroyed blood vessels are broken down and naturally eliminated by the body. IPL has no downtime compared to laser therapy.
