SCLEROTHERAPY FOR THE FACE TREATMENT
The face is one of the first areas of the body that other people notice and form a first impression about a person. The face can show health, vitality, confidence and other characteristics that contribute to a positive first impression. However, the face can have different aesthetic issues that a patient can’t control and that contribute to a negative impression. These imperfections can seriously diminish a person’s self-confidence as the face may look unhealthy and unattractive.
One of the aesthetically unattractive facial imperfections is facial veins that are known as spider veins, broken capillaries, facial telangiectasia or rosacea. These facial veins can look like small red or purple threads on the patient’s cheek or nose, or like large blue veins that typically appear on the temples around the eyes or nasolabial folds.
Spider veins are dilated veins and appear very close to the surface of the skin. These veins can form in a group and therefore like like a spider web or branches. They appear because of weak vein valves that remain close and therefore stop the blood flow. Because of this, the vein gets filled with blood and swells.
Spider veins can be painful apart from being an aesthetic problem. They don’t have to present a severe health problem but it’s always better to examine them by a specialist and if necessary remove them.
