Spider veins on the face can become more numerous and apparent in response to the aging process and/or sun damage. We refer to this condition as part of the photo-damage process of skin. Although these vessels are usually around the cheeks and nose, they may be found anywhere on the face or the body for that matter. Whether or not the spider veins are red, blue, or purple is determined by the depth of the vessel.
Most facial spider veins are easily treatable with lasers regardless of the skin type. However, using the appropriate laser technology is imperative for safety and good results.
