Many people in the UK suffer from a range of facial vein conditions such as facial thread veins, spider veins and broken capillaries, which spoil the complexion.

These are usually of no medical concern and therefore treatment via the NHS is unlikely to be forthcoming. However, the appearance of single fine facial veins or widespread patches of capillaries can be aesthetically quite difficult to manage – difficult to conceal with makeup and spoiling the appearance of clear healthy skin.

Facial Vein Conditions

Facial Thread Veins

Facial Thread Veins

As the skin on our face is thinner as compared to other parts of the body, especially around the nose, chin, cheek and eye area, veins on the face tend to be more prominent.

This condition is known as facial thread veins and it can become further enhanced as we age and lose the fat content of the face.

Some people are simply more genetically inclined to inherit facial thread veins. For others, they can be a consequence of over-exposure to the sun and cold. These veins can also appear in rosacea.

Spider Veins

Spider Veins

Spider veins are so called because of their striking appearance. They usually present as a patch of fine red twisting veins which create a web pattern and are usually red in colour, lending a ruddiness to the complexion.

Broken Capillaries

Broken Capillaries

This is a condition in which the delicate blood vessels become closer to the surface of the skin where they can rupture and result in the appearance of short visible veins or even spots. This condition is prominent when the blood capillaries twist around each other, dilate and rupture; the capillaries are extremely fine.

Broken capillaries can also occur due to consumption of alcohol which thins the capillary walls. They can also be more prevalent after an ‘outdoorsy lifestyle’ with sun, wind or cold exposure.

Once broken, the capillaries do not repair themselves so the condition will persist without any intervention. That is why to remove them, it is recommended to get professional treatment.
