Face Veins

Spider veins, broken blood vessels, broken capillaries, rosacea veins and facial telangiectasia are unsightly and can appear as tiny red threads on the nose and cheek or as large bluish veins around the temple, eye or smile lines. Facial vein issues are generally cosmetic in nature.

Before & After


Hand Veins

As we age, hand veins can lose elasticity, darkening the color of the back of the hands. Bulging hand veins can make you feel and look older than you are. While enlarged hand veins typically are not a major health issue, they can be unattractive, and can be caused by a more serious vascular disease that requires medical attention.

Lip Veins

Many patients present with a small bluish lesion on the lip which is a venous lake tumor. Often, these are the result of trauma or constant irritation. This patient had seen many specialists in the past. Most of the recommendations were for surgical excision which was not needed. You can use a laser or ohmic thermolysis and may require 2 treatments. No scarring and heals quickly.
