Thread vein problems can appear pretty much anywhere on the body but are most common on the legs or on the face. While thread veins on the legs may be larger, it is those on the face that can cause the most distress, as they are very difficult to disguise.
Makeup can only go so far in covering coloured blemishes and many men would not wish to even try a spot of concealer for risk of the ridicule if it were noticed.
They can appear as patches of tiny red blood vessels sometimes referred to as broken capillaries which emerge just under the surface of the skin. Some patients find that they are more prominent with a few larger purplish lines.
Although small and usually not a medical problem, a lot of people choose to have these veins removed for cosmetic reasons.
Advanced skin treatments available in vein treatment centres offer surprisingly fast and effective results. Options include:
The selection of treatment will depend on a few variables
- size of the veins
- distribution of the veins
- density of the veins
- how long the problem has been established
- identification of any underlying causes
Patients seeking facial vein treatment should seek a consultation appointment with a skilled professional such as one of Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ Aesthetic Doctors or Surgeons.
