Veins can appear in a variety of places. In fact, there really isn’t anywhere you CAN’T get spider veins. Did you know that one of those places is your face? That’s right, your face is actually pretty easily susceptible to getting facial spider veins. Luckily, there’s something you can about it—or at least, there is someone who can.
How Do You Get Facial Spider Veins?
The ways you can facial spider veins varies slightly from how you get them everywhere else on your body. The problem is, your face is actually quite different than everywhere else on your body, from the tissues, bone mass, and to the skin. Essentially, your face is one of the more sensitive places on your body.
Here are just some of the ways you can get facial spider veins.
We talk about age a lot, since it is one of the most key reasons people start getting varicose veins or spider veins. The older we get, the weaker our veins get, causing pressure to build up and damage to happen. One of the ways the veins can be damaged is by weakened valves.
If you’re not familiar, free radicals are the tiny radioactive particles floating around in our atmosphere. When you take away an atoms electron or neutron, it loses atomic mass and becomes a free radical and starts unwillingly searching for that missing piece. Once it finds it, it attaches, like a lego, to whatever atom it comes across, forming newer unstable molecules. These can alter genetic makeup and lead to defects and other diseases. The two biggest creators of free radicals are the sun’s UV rays and smoking cigarettes, strangely enough.
Speaking of smoking, the way you live your life and your health is directly corresponding to the way your face can form spider veins and other venous diseases. When you lack exercise, sleep, and nutrition, you may start to see those facial spider veins start to form—at which point, it’s time to change your lifestyle a bit.
Facial Spider Vein Treatments
Luckily, there are treatment options for facial spider veins. You may first want to speak with your vein disease professional, but there are other things you can do to help the spread and growth of these little nuisances.
One of the options is laser treatments. Laser technology has come a long way and its applications are seemingly limitless. That said, laser vein treatment is known to be rather effective.
You could also consider injectables, like BOTOX. Your best course of action may, in fact, be full facial rejuvenation. Typically, BOTOX and dermal fillers treat the different skin layers and make you look younger by preserving the health of your skin. It’s also worth mentioning that BOTOX and facial rejuvenation technology has come a long way. You can get a very real, natural looking lift in the health of your face with just one treatment.
