Facial Veins

Visible facial veins, which have many different names (spider veins, telangiectasias, rosacea, spider angiomas), are actually dilated blood vessels. They are most typically found on the forehead, nose, cheeks, eyelids.

Facial Veins Who They Affect and Why

Visible veins are most commonly seen in fair-skinned women and usually appear in the fourth or fifth decade. Blood vessel dilation is due to weakening of the elastic fibers in the walls of the blood vessel. Although the exact mechanisms leading to blood vessel dilation are not understood, visible veins are associated with excessive sun exposure, normal aging, steroid use, liver disease, genetics, radiation therapy, and trauma. On the face, visible veins can range in size from the tip of a pencil to bigger than a pencil eraser. Visible veins may be even larger on sites other than the face.
