Facial Veins Treatment Miami

Striving for Healthy Skin!

Facial veins or broken capillaries, generally referred to as telangiectasia rosacea by dermatologist, look like bruises, but unlike bruises they don’t heal on their own. Dozens of little veins dilate, break and twist causing red, bruised like areas on the face. There are a number of reasons one could experience facial veins. These tiny veins under the surface of our skin are quite delicate and damaging them may not be such a hard task. When these veins are damaged it may cause them to dilate and break, once they are broken they do not constrict back to their normal thickness.

Many factors contribute to broken capillaries, while some factors can be prevented others cannot. As we age, broken capillaries can become more prominent, this is due to the fact that our skin gets thinner and veins become more evident. Genetics also play a big role with facial veins. If your parents or grandparents had them your chances to experience some form of facial veins is much more likely. Female hormones, like estrogen encourages blood vessel growth, the use of some birth controls and hormone fluctuations may also lead to the development of facial veins. Patients who suffer from general rosacea  may also experience some form of facial veins. Find a Facial Veins Treatment Miami at our Center!

What Can Cause Facial Veins?

Factors known to trigger facial veins are excessive alcoholism and stress which can lead to an increase in blood pressure causing your facial veins to dilate. The more often this dilation process happens the more likely your veins will permanently remain dilated. Treating your skin poorly can also lead to broken capillaries. It is important to give our skin the TLC it deserves and this means not scrubbing our faces too harshly or washing our faces with extremely hot or cold water. Excessive sun exposure not only can cause skin cancer and sun-damage, it also caused by the skin to become weak which can lead to broken capillaries/facial veins. Prevention is always best, a healthy life-style and a diet in nutrient rich-foods can truly help avoid facial veins. Grapes are a great source of antioxidants called anthocyanin’s which help to build connective tissue in the skin. A well balanced diet and plenty of rest is also an effective way of preventing facial veins.
