Treatment Options for Red Spider veins
A doctor can usually diagnose broken blood vessels on the face with a visual examination. There is a range of treatment options available, but not all treatments work for everyone,.
Topical creams are used for many skin conditions, and a doctor may recommend creams for some people with spider veins. Retinoids may help reduce the visibility of the veins and boost the health of the skin. but usually patients can not able to tolerate these creams as these make skin very dry .
Sclerotherapy uses injections of sclerosing agents to help spider veins disappear in a short period of time, generally a few weeks. The injected material helps seal up the blood vessels, which causes the visible blood just under the skin to disappear. Some people may experience discomfort and pain using this method, but these side effects should resolve within a few days.
Laser therapy uses intense laser lights to destroy problematic veins. However, laser therapy can also damage the skin, which could make it sensitive during recovery. The process can also be expensive, and multiple sessions are often needed to get the desired result. The veins can return, and the procedure may need to be repeated.
Intense pulled light
Intense pulled light (IPL) therapy uses special lights that penetrate into the deeper layers of skin without damaging the top layer. This treatment may mean less recovery time and less damage to the skin. IPL therapy works in a similar way to laser therapy for broken blood vessels, though several sessions may be necessary to achieve results.
