Facial Thread Veins 

Facial thread veins are tiny blood vessels, which run close to the surface of the skin. They have very thin walls, which constantly dilate and constrict. As we age, these vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated. They are also known as spider veins, broken veins or telangiectasia. They can be associated with rosacea, a skin disorder associated with dilated, swollen capillaries and a damaged barrier function of the skin. 
There are numerous causes including: ageing, sun damage, hereditary, pregnancy, trauma, temperature extremes, hormones and skin fragility. Thread veins are commonly seen in both men and woman with fair skin. 
These types of veins can be treating successfully using Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) and Advanced Cosmetic Procedure (ACP).
