Most sun-induced facial veins (telangiectasias) on the face occur on the cheeks, nose, and chin. Once veins come, the veins that are there seem to stimulate the growth of more veins at a much faster rate. Thus, people feel like their facial redness suddenly occurred over a very short period of time.

Facial veins acquired from the sun flush more easily than other veins in response to a host of stimuli such as: exercise, hot and cold weather, spicy foods, alcohol, and hot beverages like coffee. Avoiding these stimuli is recommended, but nearly impossible to avoid entirely. Facial redness and flushing due to the acquiring veins from sun exposure is called rosacea.  Rosacea is often accompanied by other symptoms of long-term sun-exposure including enlarged pores and pimples.

Facial Vein Treatment:

  • Daily Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen
  • Vascular Laser Treatment: Facial veins can be effectively removed by vascular Lasers Treatments such as Excel V™ that target the blood vessels for effective clearance. It can be used to remove redness and flushing, as well.
    • After a single laser treatment, a significant improvement can be seen in most people, although a series of treatments are necessary to remove virtually all of the veins and keep them away for an extended period of time.

Make an appointment with Dr. Curcio to determine what treatment is best for you.
