It seems to me you are referring to facial spider veins. Though it is possible to prevent the formation or the worsening of facial spider veins, the only effective way to get rid of them is through the intervention of a cosmetic surgeon, a dermatologist, or a vein doctor, who, nowadays are using minimally invasive methods, such as light-based treatments (laser and intense pulsed light), sclerotherapy, and the the Veinwave treatment.  I should add that light-based facial spider vein treatment, and the Veinwave spider vein treatments are safer for facial spider veins than sclerotherapy, which is the most commen leg spider vein treatment procedure.  Lasers work on facial spider veins, by emitting a single wavelength, either in the visible portion of electromagnetic radiation or the infrared region, which are absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood. The absorbed radiation causes the generation of heat, which collapses the veins. Infrared lasers are suited for the deeper reticular and spider veins, whereas visible wavelength lasers are used for the more superficial spider veins. Intense pulsed light systems; on the other hand, emit continous range of wavelengths and therefore are less specific. It should be mentioned that light-based treatment require several sessions to effectively remove facial spider veins, but the procedure is almost pain-free, effective, and safe.  Sclerotherapy, which involves the use of a fine needle to inject a potent fluid directly into a vein, is another approach to get rid of facial spider veins, but there is the possibility of scarring or causing retinal damage if used near the orbital rim of the eye.  The Veinwave system, recently developed in the U.K. And introduced in the States, works on spider veins by the microwave frequency, produced by means of a tiny needle, which is injected directly into the vein. This procedure is also safe and effective in treating facial spider veins, and the pain during needle injections is insignificant.  Leave a comment Report
