Introduction To Face Veins Treatment

One of the most common problems we treat patients for at PHI Clinic are facial veins. Face veins, or telangiectasia varicose veins, are small clusters of veins that run close to the surface of skin that have become enlarged. Also called thread veins or spider veins, they are not dangerous, but can cause people to be self-conscious or lose confidence as they can be unsightly.

At PHI Clinic, these thread veins can be treated using powerful lasers, making insecurities about facial veins a thing of the past for you.

Factors To Consider

Women are more likely to be affected by face veins due to higher oestrogen levels, and being pregnant, on the Pill, or undergoing hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can increase susceptibility. Obesity, sunbathing, excessive alcohol consumption, and age can also contribute towards the appearance of spider veins on the face, as can using moisturisers that contain alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), because of its exfoliating properties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Usually patients would expect a course of treatment however, this would be determined after a comprehensive consultation and skin analysis.

In some cases patients are not suitable, especially if the patient is pregnant or breastfeeding. In these cases, no laser treatment will be permitted at PHI clinic.

We have also actually received a large number of enquiries from patients of Asian descent. While rosacea was always considered a symptom for Caucasian skin, it is actually found to be prominent in many other skin types, too.

There is also another big “no-no” when it comes to treatment with a laser – this is a suntan. Any laser treatment when performed on suntanned skin can have adverse reactions, in some cases causing hyper or hypo pigmentation.

If the patient wishes to receive face vein treatment and has a suntan we will ask the patient to return approximately four weeks later with a suntan has subsided and we can commence the first phase of vein treatment.

The price for Face Veins treatments start from: £500
