Broken Blood Vessels (Spider Veins)

Broken Blood Vessels (Spider Veins)

Telangiectasias, which are facial blood vessels that are visible on the skin, are not typically of any medical importance and do not need to be treated; however,  cosmetically-speaking, they can be quite bothersome.  Telangiectasias most often occur on the face, commonly around the nose or on the cheeks or chin, and can develop elsewhere on the body.  The term ‘spider vein’ refers to an enlarged blood vessel on the legs, although spider veins can occur on the face as well.

Telangiectasias and other vascular lesions can be effectively treated with lasers.  Spider veins on the legs can be treated by laser or Sclerotherapy.
