Do you suffer from broken veins on the face, that you’d rather cover up? When it’s only a single vein, it may not be a massive concern. But once you’ve multiple broken veins clumped together; you may find it creates a redness that leaves you looking constantly blushed. How can you treat broken veins on the face? And are those veins likely to return back?
Cause of broken veins on the face
Spider veins form when the capillaries in the skin on your face become dilated. This could be a result of poor blood circulation, ageing, damaged skin ( by heat, cold, sun, squeezing, intense resurfacing). Broken blood vessels on the face can develop at any age. But some people may have a higher chance of developing them than others.
How to treat broken veins on the face?
Luckily, there are broken vein treatments to improve the appearance of broken veins – the most popular of which we provide at Skin Perfection, our Central London, Skin and Laser Clinic is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Thread Vein Removal.
IPL uses a non-laser, high intensity source of light to treat finer spider veins close to the surface of the skin. This treatment is perfect for facial areas. IPL heats up and damages the walls of the veins, again, causing them to collapse on themselves and disappear over time and form scar tissue.
After the treatment, patients can expect their veins to look more prominent. This could last approximately for 10 – 14 days. Once this period has passed, this fades dramatically, leaving smoother and clearer skin. The body reabsorbs the veins naturally and in a course of weeks, expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your thread veins.
Many patients worry about the safety of using lasers to treat problems such as broken veins – however, this treatment is completely safe. What’s more, the treatment is made more comfortable through skin cooling technology on the laser handsets. The skin will feel quite warm after the treatment. And after applying cooling ice packs to the treated skin area, patients typically experience minimal discomfort.
