Facial Vein Treatment in Newport Beach, California (CA)

Facial Veins

Facial veins are superficial red, blue, or purple spider veins (telangiectasia) that appear mostly on the cheeks, nose, and under the eyes. They are usually 1mm or smaller in diameter, and may show as a single vein or a group. 

Causes of facial veins

Facial veins are caused by abnormal, backwards blood flow and weakened vein walls. When the vein wall becomes compromised, it stretches and dilates, thus becoming visible from the skin. This can be caused by factors like age, heredity, sun-damage, high blood pressure, obesity, skin trauma, and prolonged inflammation. Skin conditions like rosacea can also lead to facial veins.

Treating facial veins

There are many effective, in-office treatments for facial spider veins that are non-invasive and have no downtime. Treatment options include:
  • Sclerotherapy
  • Laser/light therapy
  • VeinGogh, Veinwave (ohmic thermolysis)


The cost of treating facial veins can vary depending on your area, physician, and insurance coverage. Generally, your health insurance may cover a treatment if your doctor determines that it is medically necessary, and is not just for cosmetic reasons. Facial veins are usually a cosmetic issue, and treatment is unlikely to be covered by health insurance.
