Face Veins Q & A

What are face veins?

Facial veins are visible veins, often spider veins or reticular veins that appear on your face. They are tiny veins that might look like a spider’s web or squiggly lines. Face veins are often simply a cosmetic nuisance, and not necessarily cause for concern. However, they can make you feel self-conscious and negatively affect your quality of life.

What are the risk factors for face veins?

Anybody can develop face veins, but certain factors increase your risk of experiencing them. Examples include:

  • Sun exposure
  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Environmental irritants
  • Weather or pressure changes
  • Injuries
  • Frequent alcohol consumption
  • Face injuries

See Carolina Vein Institute at the first sign of face veins to get rid of them and restore your self-confidence without any downtime.

Is face vein treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for face vein treatment, your specialist reviews your medical history, examines your face, and discusses your desired outcome. If visible facial veins make you self-conscious about your appearance, seeking treatment is often the right choice. Your provider personalizes each treatment to give you the best possible outcome.

What are my face vein treatment options?

If you have face veins, your Carolina Vein Institute specialist might recommend sclerotherapy to address them. During sclerotherapy, your vein specialist injects your face veins with a chemical solution, which causes visible blood vessels to close and disappear over time.

Don’t live with visible face veins when simple, highly effective treatments can give you the complexion and self-confidence you deserve. Schedule an appointment with Carolina Vein Institute by phone or online to get rid of face veins today.
