3 Ways to Disguise Spider Veins

5 Ways to Disguise Spider VeinsFacial thread veins, also known as spider veins, may be harmless in medical terms, but they still be quite troubling, especially when others start to comment on them. 

If thread veins are on the face, then unfortunately they’re going to be noticeable to others unless you can manage to disguise them.

It’s not easy, but we’ve compiled 3 suggestions that you could try to disguise facial thread veins.

1/ Makeup/cosmetics

It may sound obvious, but makeup is probably the cheapest and easiest way of disguising facial thread veins, so it’s definitely worth a try. Even if you don’t normally wear makeup, finding a good concealer could go a long way to making you feel less self-conscious about thread veins. However, it’s important to choose a well-matched one. Concealer that is too dark or too pale can be just as noticeable as the thread veins you’re trying to cover up. It’s worth getting advice from a properly trained adviser on a makeup counter. Bear in mind that you may need a different shade in the summer/winter too. Concealer is only a temporary fix, but can be a help.

Depending on your lifestyle, you may find a waterproof concealer more effective or suitable. Try not to be too heavy handed, you want a natural coverage to blend away the thread veins, so they may not completely disappear.

2/ Self Tan

For the summer months, having a bit of a glow can give you a healthy and radiant complexion. While it won’t cover them up as such, this can really take the emphasis of thread veins. A light self-tan could help year-round.

3/ Hair Styling

Depending on where they’re located, it may be that you can arrange a hair style that helps to mask them. Worth exploring with your stylist next time you get a cut.

Spider Vein Treatments

While we’ve put together a few suggestions, there’s clearly no easy solution for disguising thread veins.

If you want a more permanent solution, then treatments are available. For facial thread veins, Nd:YAG advanced laser technology can be used to remove spider veins and other facial thread vein problems.

The laser works to destroy the visible veins, leaving blood to circulate through healthier veins located deeper beneath the skin’s surface. Laser treatment has an additional benefit, in that it also boosts the body’s healing and renewal processes, leaving skin looking clearer, healthier and more radiant too.
