Thread veins on chin

Facial thread veins, commonly referred to as spider veins, can appear just beneath the skin's surface, typically on the chin, nose and cheeks. While thread veins on the chin usually pose no significant health issues and are normally painless, some individuals don’t like their appearance and choose to get them removed. At Dr. Newmans Clinic, we offer a safe and comfortable approach to removing thread veins on the chin.

What are spider veins on the chin?

Spider veins on the chin, also known as thread veins or facial ‘telangiectasia’, are small, visible blood vessels that appear near the skin's surface in the chin area. As the skin is thinner on the face, thread veins can often be more visible than on other areas of the body, resembling tiny spider webs or branching patterns and can vary in colour from red to purple. Just like spider veins on other parts of the body, they are typically harmless from a medical standpoint, however there are treatments available to remove them if desired.

Why do I have thread veins on my chin?

There are many different reasons why you may have spider veins on your chin, the reasons vary from genetics to lifestyle choices and can heavily depend on your age. Whilst these factors can contribute to the development of spider veins on the chin, each case is unique to the individual.

Having a  family history of spider veins or other vascular conditions can increase the likelihood of developing them.

As we age, the skin and blood vessels naturally lose some of their elasticity, making veins more prone to becoming visible through thinner skin.

Sun exposure
Prolonged and unprotected sun exposure can weaken the blood vessels and cause them to become more visible on the skin's surface, increasing the appearance of thread veins on chin.

Any form of trauma or injury to the chin area can potentially damage blood vessels and lead to the development of spider veins.

Hormone changes
Hormonal fluctuations, particularly in women, can contribute to the development of spider veins. This is especially common during pregnancy, menopause, and certain hormonal treatments.

Medical Conditions
Some underlying medical conditions, such as liver disease or vascular disorders, can increase the risk of spider veins and certain skin conditions, such as rosacea, can cause blood vessels to dilate and become more prominent on the skin.

Thread Vein Removal for Chin - FAQs

What causes spider veins on the chin? 
Various factors contribute to spider veins on the chin, including genetics, sun exposure, ageing, hormonal changes, and other health or skin conditions.

How long does treatment for thread veins on the chin take? 
Treatment sessions can vary based on the method used, but Veinwave therapy typically takes around 30 minutes.

Is the treatment for removing spider veins on chin painful?
The procedure for thread vein removal is virtually painless, as it is performed under local anaesthetic. Veinwave uses a fine needle to target affected veins, causing little to no pain (similar to a vaccination or hair being pulled).

Are the results of spider veins on the chin treatment permanent?
Treatment to remove spider veins is effective, however there is a chance that new ones can develop over time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and using sun protection can help prolong the results, and reduce the risk of new thread veins appearing.

How many sessions are needed for noticeable results for removing spider veins on the chin?
The number of sessions required to remove spider veins on the chin depends on the severity of the condition and the chosen treatment. Multiple sessions might be necessary to achieve optimal outcomes.

Is there recovery for having spider veins on the chin removed? 
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.

Thread veins on chin treatment

At Dr Newmans Clinic, we use innovative and non-invasive methods for the removal of chin thread veins. Our techniques are powered by state-of-the-art Veinwave or ThermaVein, a highly-effective option that uses 'thermocoagulation' and microwave technology. It stands apart from laser therapy, a procedure that can potentially lead to scarring or pigmentation problems on the chin and facial area. In contrast, Veinwave is notably safer and has higher success rates compared to laser treatments, as it is able to deliver instant results leaving patients with noticeably reduced spider veins on the chin.

As an alternative, Dr Newmans offers Micro Sclerotherapy. This technique involves injecting a saline solution into thread veins, prompting controlled swelling within the vein wall. Gradually, over a span of a few weeks, this process effectively removes the vein, meaning the spider-like appearance is reduced.

Both Veinwave and Micro Sclerotherapy treatments are quick and safe options for removing spider veins on the chin, with each session lasting approximately 30 minutes. They are generally well-tolerated by most patients, and are relatively pain-free for most patients.
