How to Get Your Facial Redness to Go Away
- Posted on: Aug 15 2018
It’s nice to have a little color in your skin but having too much redness can make you look flushed all the time. Did you know that one of the leading causes of facial redness is spider veins? Spider veins in the face are caused by a variety of different factors including age, thin skin, sun exposure, or too much pressure on the small veins in the face among other things. If you have developed spider veins on your face, let us help you get rid of the redness.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
The main method that we use to treat spider veins on the face is a laser treatment called Intense Pulse Light or IPL. IPL works by targeting the blood vessels on your face and neck which causes them to lighten and ultimately disappear. Depending on how your skin responds to IPL and how severe your spider veins are, it will help us determine just how many treatment options you will need.
If you have noticed that the more sun exposure you get the more spider veins appear on your face, then avoid this trigger altogether and try not to spend too much time out in the sun. Because you can’t spend all of your time cooped up inside, make sure that you wear a large brimmed hat and sunscreen when you do go outside; this will help prevent you from getting further spider veins.
Spider veins can make you feel extremely self-conscious; especially when they’re on a part of your body like your face.
