Vascular Lesions

Thread veins or broken red vessels (telangiectasia) are small unsightly superficial red, purple or blue veins that occur around the nose, cheeks and chin. These broken veins become more apparent when the vein dilates and become larger so they are visible through the transparency of the skin.

Unfortunately, these veins can cause significant psychological distress and affect the individual’s self-esteem.

Vascular Lesions Before and After

How are Vascular Lesions caused?

Facial veins may be hereditary or induced by a variety of environmental factors such as sun exposure, cold wind and other extremes of temperature. The over-use of steroid creams may also play a role. These veins may also be part of the natural ageing process or part of a skin condition called Rosacea.

Most red skin lesions including facial thread veins, spider naevi and port wine stains can be treated.
