Facial veins are small red to purple dilated blood vessels or broken capillaries, often found on areas of the cheeks, forehead, chin and the nose. Facial blood vessels may be caused by over-exposure to the sun, the natural ageing process, heredity or trauma. Many individuals may find these veins undesirable and unattractive, and seek laser treatments as a cosmetic correction. As with all procedures, there are pros and cons of laser treatments for facial veins.

How to Treat Broken Capillaries on Your Face — and Prevent Them in the First Place
Facial veins are visible red or blue thin lines that appear on certain areas of the face. Facial veins, also known as spider veins, are usually near the surface of the skin and will appear on the forehead, eyelids, the sides of the nose, around the cheek area and on the lower part of the face. These inflated blood vessels have a tendency to occur in older females, and will often cause mild discomfort. There are a variety of reasons why a person might have facial veins, which can also appear on other regions of the body. Some of these causes can result from an interruption of blood flow in the veins, hormones, people with fair skin, too much sun exposure, rosacea, or from the use of topical medications.
