Spider Veins on the Face

Spider veins are broken blood vessels that appear just beneath the surface of the skin. The skin on our face is particularly thin and exposed to the elements; so it’s unsurprising that spidery veins are a common issue for many. 

Spider veins are more likely to crop up on our face as we age. Our skin becomes more easily damaged and the capillaries in the face become dilated creating broken blood vessels. Although the likelihood of developing spider veins increases with age, some people are more genetically prone to them. 

So aside from genetics, what causes spider veins on the face? The reasons can range from sun damage and pregnancy, to rosacea and environmental factors such as pollution or extreme heat.  Spider veins on the face are harmless and easy to diagnose with a simple visual examination.

If you’re looking for an effective way to lessen the appearance of spider veins on your face, then our SkinSpaceUK clinics are on hand with a range of solutions, tailored to meet your individual needs.

Harmony Dye-VL Laser to Treat Thread Veins uses Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) pulsed light to target veins below the surface without damaging the skin’s surface.

If spider veins on the face are a concern, our SkinSpaceUK practitioners are here to help you create a bespoke plan for a clearer skin.
