Most broken veins will appear on areas such as the thighs.
It is not uncommon however for people to get spider veins on the face.
While these can look quite unsightly the procedure to remove them is relatively simple.
Rather than trying to hide the veins with clever makeup, it might be time to visit a dermatologist and have them treated with a laser.
The way that the laser treats these veins is through a wavelength of light that it emits.
The laser light increases the heat of the blood inside the vein.
When the heat reaches a certain temperature the blood vessel walls collapse and dissolve.
Is a relatively quick treatment taking approximately 15 minutes and there is very little sensation felt by the patient.
To get the desired results you will often need several treatments spread out over a number of weeks.
There are various different types of lasers used in the treatment and the dermatologist will choose the one most suitable dependent upon the results that are required.
Each of the different types of lasers will emit a slightly different beam and having the choice of the different lasers allows the dermatologist to target the various different types of spider veins that are present.
After a few treatments with the laser light the capillaries will be dilated and virtually invisible.
When this laser treatment is used on the face it is quite easy with the use of light makeup to completely conceal any traces of the veins.
There is very little chance of any side effects from laser vein treatment, with the most noticeable sign that you’ve had the treatment being slight redness around the area where the veins were.
As with most treatments it is better to get on to the problem as soon as possible while the veins are small and there is less damage to the skin.
