What causes enlarged Facial Veins?
Facial veins occur more often in patients with fair skin and especially with a Scottish or Irish family background. In Rosacea dilated blood vessels can be associated with papules, scaling and even pustules and there can be pain, burning or itch. Vasodilators that enlarge vessels can include hot foods or beverages, spicy foods, and alcohol. Spider telangiestasias occur often in puberty and in pregnancy.
How do you treat Facial Veins?
At the Advanced Dermatology Center we have a great deal of experience with enlarged facial veins and we have a full range of treatments. We aim to eliminate the vein and the redness and also leave the surrounding skin intact. For small areas we use an electric needle at a very low power. We have the largest laser center in Southwest Georgia and so we have specific lasers that are very useful and efficient, especially for larger areas.
What are the costs for treating facial veins?
Costs vary depending on the types of veins, the area and extent and the types of treatment needed. But we do try to keep costs very reasonable
