How to get rid of spider veins on face is helpful useful and important for the people who have spider veins on face. Now, Let us know the spider veins on face:


Spider Veins On Face

The Spider veins on face refers to a skin disease caused by the expansion of facial capillaries, which is easily distributed in both cheeks. In the early stage of skin sensitivity, the face is red, itchy and swollen, and the red blood filaments can be seen clearly outside the skin.

The expansion of facial capillaries can make the face appear a kind of “red face”. This kind of person often turns purple in winter and red in summer. Even if they exercise slightly or are excited, they are prone to red face. 

Sometimes they eat some stimulating or high calorie food, and their cheeks will turn red obviously, which greatly affects the beauty of the face. Therefore, it is called “Guan Gong face”. Not only that, some people face will appear annoying abnormal feeling, such as facial will appear fever feeling, or slight itching, tingling and so on.

What causes spider veins and other visible veins?

To understand why these visible veins develop, you’ve got to understand how blood flows through the body. Your heart pumps blood to your entire body through your blood vessels. From there, blood circulates outward toward the extremities (legs, arms, head) through the arteries and back inward to the heart through your veins.

Think of veins as being a hose that flows from bottom-up toward your heart .And there’s a little valve. When they work well, the blood shoots up and the valve closes. While it doesn’t work, the blood falls back down instead of moving north.”

When blood flows in the wrong direction because of a valve problem, it can get backed up in the veins of the legs, which damages the walls of the vein, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) explains. That extra pressure on the vein walls gradually causes them to weaken and then bulge, creating veins we can actually see. In fact, the majority of people who have spider veins and/or varicose veins will be dealing with this type of “venous insufficiency,” Dr. Hollingsworth says.

However, other factors can contribute to the likelihood that you’ll develop visible veins, including genetics, age, and your level of physical activity, the AAD says.

For instance, if you have a job where you are standing still for long periods of time, gravity is at work pulling the blood back down toward the legs, causing the veins to get stretched out and the valves to weaken over time. If you sit all day at your job, you can also start to see visible veins because there is a lack of muscle movement. The muscles in the leg help the veins push the blood back up toward the heart, so moving around during the day can help prevent visible veins. (That rumor that crossing your legs can cause spider veins isn’t true, so go ahead and cross ’em if you like—just make sure that you get out of your chair and move around during the day to get the blood pumping.)

There is some research to suggest that carrying extra weight can impact the function of your veins and, therefore, also increase your risk for visible veins. Having more fat around your stomach (visceral fat) can increase the pressure in your abdomen, which then creates an obstruction that blocks the flow of blood. That increased pressure dilates the veins, which extends all the way through the lower vein bridge and all the way up to the veins in your skin.

A similar situation happens during pregnancy when the added pressure in the abdomen squeezes the veins. But the hormonal shifts that happen during pregnancy may also play a role. When women are exposed to excess estrogen or progesterone, what it tends to do is make your soft tissue a little more flexible. “That same process, we think, is affecting the veins, making them predisposed to dilate and stretch out.” After pregnancy, the veins generally go away and everything returns to normal. This vein weakening can also happen if you’re taking hormonal birth control.

Although visible veins may seem like a purely superficial issue, they can become painful when left untreated.Spider and varicose veins make your legs sore because it’s an inflammatory process. So preventing and treating spider veins can save you from a lot of discomfort.

How Is facial Spider Veins Formed?

There are two causes of Spider veins: congenital and acquired:

Congenital include: telangiectasia, nevus telangiectasia and so on. It’s often familial. This kind of red face usually starts from an early age.

Acquired nature is the most common and the incidence is complex. The main causes are as follows:

  1. Long term use of corticosteroids, because other side effects of hormones causes capillary expansion, resulting in skin thinning and atrophy;
  2. Living in a high cold area or suffering from frostbite, the blood circulation is blocked, and there are red blood filaments on the face;
  3. It is caused by the exposure of unprotected dermis to the outside and strong ultraviolet light due to the long-term exfoliation after skin dressing;
  4. Sensitive skin generally has thin cuticle. They are sensitive to external sunlight, herbs, cosmetics, temperature (cold and hot), etc., which causes the blood vessels to be loose when they are not slightly tight, presenting a state of repeated congestion, resulting in the circuitous expansion of blood vessels and the formation of red blood filaments.
  5. Changes in weather: Drastic changes in the weather may affect the circulation in the body, causing the skin in the face to flush. The blood vessels may burst, causing a spider vein.
  6. Changes in pressure: Sudden, extreme changes in pressure may cause small broken blood vessels to appear. An exceptionally hard sneeze or vomiting can cause this change in pressure.
  7. Pregnancy: Hormonal changes during pregnancy may also cause broken blood vessels. Pregnancy-related spider veins usually disappear after giving birth.
  8. Environmental irritants: Exposure to certain chemicals or environmental pollutants may damage the skin and make blood vessels more visible.
  9. Rosacea: This is a common condition that causes the skin to become flushed and red due to enlarged veins. People with rosacea often experience spider veins.
  10. Alcohol consumption: Alcohol can dilate the blood vessels temporarily. Frequent alcohol consumption may lead to longer-lasting broken blood vessels and redness on the face.
  11. Injuries: Head injuries that cause bruising may also cause broken blood vessels. In this case, the blood vessels will often heal as the bruise does.

In addition, many of the so-called freckle cream is actually a chemical exfoliation agent, or it has a very strong exfoliation effect, which is easy to cause capillary expansion of the face skin.

Is Spider Vein Treatment Necessary?

Some people falsely believe that spider veins are not serious.

That is entirely untrue for a number of reasons. Basically, spider veins are three things — hideous, painful, and dangerous.


Spider Veins are hideous. Seriously, they look like red inflamed spider webs crawling across your skin. And once you get spider veins, they keep growing.

Initially, you might be able to cover up the spots with your clothing. But these spider veins continue growing and spreading till you can’t hide them anymore.


Spider veins can also be seriously painful and uncomfortable. They prevent you from being able to sit or stand properly.

Even when you walk, you look clearly uncomfortable, which gives people the impression that you might have rashes.

No one wants that.


From a medical standpoint, removing spider veins is necessary because it’s actually dangerous.

Spider Veins can be harmless on their own. But, in most cases, spider veins are just a symptom of underlying Chronic Venous Insufficiency.

Venous Insufficiency is a serious medical condition in which the valves in the veins malfunction. This causes blood to pool down in the legs, causing spider veins and varicose veins.

If you have venous insufficiency (which you most probably do), you have to seek medical advice immediately. If you leave it untreated, it can lead to bleeding, ulcers, infections, and so much more. When the accumulated blood in the veins clots (a condition called Deep Vein Thrombosis), it can even potentially get carried to your lungs and cause death!

First of all, we should make clear the diagnosis, find out the possible causes and try to avoid them. Secondly, different treatment plans should be made for the telangiectasia caused by different reasons. For example, stop using all kinds of unreasonable beauty treatments that stimulate and damage the skin, give the skin the opportunity and time to restore the nature, or restore the normal, with appropriate treatment, generally speaking, the facial capillary expansion can get a more ideal treatment.

Generally speaking, at present, there is no method that has a good effect on spider veins on face natural treatment. Currently, the most ideal treatment is 980nm diode laser machine. The 980nm diode laser which is specially used to treat the blood vessels can penetrate the skin on the lesion very smoothly, enter the lesion site, and treat the blood vessels on the lesion site. During the treatment, the hemoglobin in the blood vessels is completely coagulated under the powerful laser, and these coagulated hemoglobin will seal the abnormal blood vessels, so that the diseased blood vessels will be “ligated” and finally disappear to cure. Because the damage of this laser to the skin is very small, the skin can generally return to normal after treatment, so the skin can completely recover the skin color after treatment, without leaving scars.

How do lasers treat spider veins?

Lasers create a narrow beam of light. The light is concentrated into a single, very specific frequency and color. That color can be red or green or invisible (like infrared light). And the laser creates waves of light that are the perfectly in step – imagine ocean waves, the crest of each wave exactly aligned with the crests of all the others.

Lasers in skincare use something called selective photothermolysis. That is they a target a certain color (called a chromophore) within tissue using a specific light wavelength. The laser sends out that light which creates heat and destroys the selected color target – ideally without damaging surrounding tissue.

For things like facial spider veins, the color target (chromophore) is oxyhemoglobin. It’s the oxygen-carrying pigment in red blood cells that gives them their red color.

So the 980nm laser is the optimum absorption spectrum of Porphyrin vascular cells. Vascular cells absorb the high-energy laser of 980nm wavelength, solidification occurs, and finally dissipated.

To reach the target tissue more accurately, the laser energy is delivered by a professional design handpiece. It enables energy to be focused onto a 0.2-0.5mm diameter range, in order to reach the target tissue, while avoiding burn the surrouding skin tissue.

Steps a person can take to help prevent spider veins include:

Limit sun exposure

Wearing sunscreen, a hat, and long layers of clothing can help reduce the chances of spider veins from sun damage. It may also help to avoid the sun during peak hours in the middle of the day if living in a hot area.

Wear protection

Protective gear may help avoid spider veins caused by injury. Examples include facemasks and helmets for baseball, cycling, or riding a motorcycle.

Avoid extreme heat

Very high temperatures from spas, saunas, or hot weather may dilate the blood vessels and increase the chances of spider veins appearing.

Avoid vasodilators

Vasodilators cause vessels to fill with blood and may make spider veins more noticeable. Common vasodilators include caffeine, spicy foods, and alcohol. Even moderate alcohol drinking can cause redness and broken blood vessels in some people.
