Visible Veins

Spider Veins & Broken Capillaries

Red blotches and facial redness are the hallmarks of broken capillaries or spider veins on the face. Rarely a serious health problem, these small visible veins are most often treated to enhance your appearance.

Spider veins are superficial thin blood vessels most commonly found on the legs and face. These dilated capillaries can appear red, purple or blue in colour, and either as strands or in clusters. If found on the legs, spider veins can cause some discomfort such as itching or burning. Sometimes spider veins are symptomatic of a larger venous problem such as varicose veins.
Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that connect arteries and veins in the outer layer of the skin. When several broken capillaries appear in one area, they become visible as red streaks or blotches. These veins on the face – especially on the nose and cheek – can be further irritated by certain factors causing ‘flushing’ or more redness.
Depending on your individual needs, broken capillaries and spider vein removal can be achieved in different ways:

  • IPL
  • Sclerotherapy
  • Vascular Laser
