According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the dilated blood vessels that make up spider veins appear most often in fair-skinned women. These veins lie close to the surface of your skin, often appearing as a series of red or blue unconnected lines or in a pattern called a sunburst around your nose and cheeks. Because of their location, SmartSkinCare.com notes that removing facial spider veins requires a more aggressive treatment plan than most supplements or topical and oral medications can provide.
Call your doctor or dermatologist and schedule a consultation appointment to discuss your condition and possible treatment options.
Ask about a vessel-strengthening agent called escin. Escin is one of the few ingredients in commercially available treatments that clinical studies show may be effective in removing spider veins.
Discuss medical treatments designed to improve your appearance. The two most common treatments for facial spider veins are laser treatments and scleroptherapy, although SmartSkinCare.com notes that laser treatments are often the best option for removing facial spider veins.
Listen carefully to the recommendations your doctor or dermatologist makes and work with him or her to create the best treatment plan for you.
