They’re also called broken capillaries, spider veins, or telangiectasia. No matter what you call them, facial veins can be quite bothersome. They can ruin an otherwise clear complexion and impact your confidence as well.
At Lake Jackson Medical Spa, we’re here to cover all of your cosmetic skin care needs with effective, yet gentle, treatments. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide on how facial veins can be quite the nuisance and how TempSure™ can erase them with just a few simple outpatient treatments.
What brings on facial veins
Facial veins have a few different causes. Some of the following factors can either cause or exacerbate facial veins. They include:
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Chemical irritants
- Surgical excisions
- Sun exposure
- Excessive vomiting
- Environmental irritants
- Facial injuries
Though some of these factors aren’t preventable, like genetics, pregnancy, or the need to take medications, some of the causes of facial veins are completely preventable. You can reduce your chances of developing facial veins by protecting yourself when you’re out in the sun and reducing your exposure.
When you’re out in the sun, use protective clothing, and cover any exposed areas of your body in sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30 or better. You’ll also want to avoid using hot water to wash your face, since heat is known to cause broken blood vessels.
You’ll also want to use alcohol in moderation, as heavy drinking is one of the more notorious culprits behind facial veins. In addition to limiting your alcohol consumption, it would also help to live an overall healthy lifestyle in general. Be sure to eat a health diet with plenty of whole grains, lean proteins, and a variety of fruits and vegetables.
How we treat facial veins
At our medical spa, we use TempSure as a gentle, but effective, treatment for removing your facial veins. TempSure is great, and since it’s a quick outpatient treatment, it only takes 20 minutes to complete. Most people only need a total of four treatments, spent two to four weeks apart.
The facial rejuvenation effects and the erasure of the imperfections, like facial veins, are permanent. You may need a touch-up session every six months to a year to maintain your age-defying results to ensure that your face remains free of any imperfections
