Facial spider veins appear when the tiny vessels just beneath our skin’s surface become dilated or more prominent. As this happens, blood that normally flows in and out of these vessels may pool and remain in the vessel, resulting in small clusters of tiny capillaries, visible beneath the skin; they can appear red, blue, or even green or purple, and sometimes have a webbed appearance (which is why we call them spider veins). These unsightly veins can occur almost anywhere on the body, but are commonly found on the face, around the nose, cheeks, chin and neck.
Medical aesthetic treatments and procedures are key to their ccontrolling spider veins on the face. At AegisMD, we can diagnose these veins properly, and treat with our services while creating a plan for lifestyle changes that can help reduce the appearance of spider veins. Dr. Plaskos can also prescribe medications if needed.
