Spider veins, facial veins



Telangiectasia is a condition characterized by the dilation of small blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes. These dilated vessels, often referred to as "spider veins" due to their web-like appearance, can be red, blue, or purple. Telangiectasia can occur anywhere on the body but is most commonly found on the face, especially around the nose, cheeks, and chin, as well as on the legs.


Telangiectasia can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  1. Genetics: Some individuals have a hereditary predisposition to developing telangiectasia.

  2. Sun Exposure: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the skin and lead to the formation of spider veins.

  3. Aging: As people age, the skin and blood vessels become more fragile and susceptible to damage.

  4. Hormonal Changes: Hormonal fluctuations, particularly during pregnancy or due to birth control pills, can contribute to the development of telangiectasia.

  5. Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as rosacea, scleroderma, or systemic lupus erythematosus, can be associated with telangiectasia.

  6. Environmental Factors: Prolonged use of corticosteroids, extreme temperatures, or radiation therapy can also lead to the condition.

Treatments for Spider veins / Facial Veins (Telengiactasia)

PRP injections offer a promising and innovative approach to treating telangiectasia by promoting vascular repair, reducing inflammation, and enhancing skin health through natural regenerative processes. 

The anti-inflammatory properties of PRP can help to reduce inflammation around the dilated blood vessels, by decreasing inflammation, PRP can minimize the appearance of redness and swelling associated with telangiectasia.

PRP can also stimulate collagen production in the skin, which improves skin elasticity and strength. Stronger and more elastic skin can provide better support to the blood vessels, reducing their tendency to dilate and form visible spider veins.

The bioactive molecules in PRP promote overall tissue regeneration, leading to healthier skin and improved appearance.This regenerative effect can help improve the skin texture and tone around the areas affected by telangiectasia.

When it comes to broken capillaries, microneedling can help to improve their appearance by reducing inflammation and promoting healing. This can help to reduce the appearance of red or purple streaks on the skin.

Microneedling can also help to reduce the symptoms associated with broken capillaries, such as redness, swelling, and irritation.

One of the main benefits to micro needling is it increases collagen production, a natural elastic that gives skin its supple and young appearance. The result is thicker, more plump skin, which makes capillaries significantly less visible.

Polynucleotides can be injected directly into the affected areas of the skin. These injections deliver high concentrations of nucleotides to the site of telangiectasia, promoting localized repair and regeneration of the damaged blood vessels and surrounding tissues.
