Treatment for the removal of thread veins on cheeks, administered by a qualified practitioner here at Dr Newmans Clinic.
Spider veins on cheeks are also known as thread veins, and can appear just below the surface of the skin on various areas of the body. Thread veins on cheeks are no cause for concern and don’t cause any pain for most people, however some do find them unsightly and would prefer to have them removed. Here at Dr Newmans Clinic, treatment is available to remove thread veins on cheeks in a safe and pain-free way.
Spider veins on the cheeks, also known as facial telangiectasia, are small, dilated blood vessels that appear near the surface of the skin. They can create a web-like or branching pattern on the cheeks and may be red, blue, or purple in colour. Thread veins are more visible on the face than on other parts of the body because the skin, particularly on the cheeks, is thinner. Your face is more exposed to the sun and other environmental factors compared to other parts of your body, so thread vein formation is more likely.
Spider veins on cheeks can be caused by a variety of different factors, some are down to genetics, and some down to lifestyle:
If you have a family history of spider veins or other vascular conditions, you are more likely to develop them yourself.
As we age, our skin becomes thinner and less elastic. This makes it more difficult for blood to flow through the veins, which can lead to the development of spider veins.
The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the blood vessel walls, making them more likely to break. This can lead to the development of spider veins on the cheeks and other areas of the body.
Trauma to the cheeks or facial area can damage blood vessels, which can increase the chances of spider veins appearing.
Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy or menopause, can also contribute to the development of spider veins.
What causes spider veins on the cheeks?
Various factors contribute to spider veins on the cheeks, including genetics, sun exposure, ageing, hormonal changes, and skin conditions.
Is the treatment for removing spider veins on cheeks painful?
The procedure for thread vein removal is virtually painless. Veinwave uses a fine needle to target affected veins, causing little to no pain (similar to a vaccination or hair being pulled).
How long does the treatment for spider veins on cheeks take?
Treatment sessions can vary based on the method used, but Veinwave therapy typically takes around 30 minutes. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the severity of the condition and the chosen treatment method. Multiple sessions may be necessary for optimal results and we usually recommend 2 - 3 treatments.
Are the treatment results of spider veins on cheeks permanent?
While the treated spider veins are effectively treated, new ones might develop over time due to genetic and lifestyle factors mentioned above. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and sun protection can help prolong the results.
Is recovery time required for the treatment of spider veins on cheeks?
Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. However, it's advisable to avoid sun exposure and intense physical activity for a brief period as recommended by our doctor.
At Dr Newmans Clinic, we only use pioneering, non-invasive techniques to remove thread veins in cheeks, powered by cutting-edge Veinwave technology. This advanced approach uses ‘thermocoagulation’ through microwave technology to treat spider veins. It's important to note that our method is distinctly different from laser therapy, a procedure that can result in scarring or pigmentation issues on the cheeks and face. Our Veinwave technology is safer, and has higher success rates compared to laser treatments, delivering almost instantaneous results.
Dr Newmans Clinics also offer Micro Sclerotherapy. This method involves injecting thread veins with a saline solution, inducing controlled swelling in the vein wall. Over the course of a few weeks, this process gradually eliminates the vein.
Both Veinwave and micro sclerotherapy treatments are remarkably quick, requiring only about 30 minutes per session, with relatively low pain for most patients.
