Leg veins, or also commonly referred to as varicose veins, are caused from genetic predispositions, age, hormonal changes, and even years of prolonged standing. While some will experience discomfort with these dark purple or blue, twisted and sometimes bulging veins, many will not. Laser treatments can be used to remove these veins permanently. Leg veins can be compared to tree roots that will continue grow in length and diameter. It is best to treat them when they are small.
Facial veins can appear, typically in fair-skinned people, as early as 20-30 years old, and are caused when the blood vessels dilate. The dilation can occur for a variety of reasons, including sun exposure, normal aging, genetics, and even previous trauma. These veins appear most prominently on the forehead, nose, cheeks, eyelids, neck and upper chest. Laser treatments can gently collapse the veins and then the body will naturally reabsorb them.
