Visible facial veins are dilated blood vessels. Most people refer to these visual facial veins as spider veins, telangiectasias, spider angiomas, and benign vascular lesions. They are usually found on the cheeks, nose, eyelids, forehead, neck, and upper chest. Facial veins usually occur when there is a weakening of the elastic fibers in the walls of the blood vessel. Normal aging, excessive sun exposure, liver disease, steroid use, genetics, radiation therapy, and trauma can all be factors of visible facial veins. The size of the veins can vary in size as well.
Facial Veins can be treated with the ND Yag laser treatment and also they respond to BBL fotofacial.
