As we age, as with skin, our veins become more fragile, they can break easily and the dilated veins appear just below the surface of the skin. This occurs when collagen in the skin weakens, resulting in the vein staying open, increasing blood flow to the are which causes the visible fine red or purplish veins.
In addition blood vessels can do the same and broken blood vessels can be seen all over the face and body resulting in small red dots which for some can resemble tiny little blood blisters.
Most clients seeking treatment for thread veins and broken blood vessels are looking to eliminate the visible appearance and redness for a clearer complexion.
The most common concerns on the face are:
- Thread veins on the cheeks
- Discolouration resulting a redish or bluish appearance
- Broken blood vessels / blood spots
