What are Facial Thread Veins?

Facial thread veins, medically known as ‘telangiectasia’, commonly affect individuals over 50 but can occur at any age. They are small, visible blood vessels in the skin that have become dilated. Initially pink, their colour can change over time. These veins may appear as single threads or connected groups, varying in thickness. Often resembling a spider’s web, they are typically branch-like. Generally, they are not associated with serious medical conditions and primarily pose cosmetic concerns.

What causes Facial Thread Veins?

Facial thread veins occur due to faulty valves in the veins, leading to blood pooling, vein enlargement, and increased visibility, a process known as vasodilation. While exact causes are difficult to pinpoint, various risk factors contribute to their development. Multiple reasons may exist for the appearance of thread veins in a specific case.

Thread vein risk factors

  • Gender. Women have a greater propensity to thread veins. Certain hormones are thought to have a bearing on vein walls. Birth control medication containing hormones included. 
  • Age. Over time the valves start to wear and become less efficient. Eventually, the worn valves will start to allow blood to pool in the veins.
  • Pregnancy. A larger overall blood volume in the body can cause veins, especially in the legs, to enlarge.
  • Genetics. As with most conditions, the chances go up for you if there is history in your family.
  • Inactivity. Standing or sitting for long periods will increase your risk of developing thread veins in your legs. Movement reduces the risk.
  • Being overweight. Extra pressure put on veins due to excess weight is a risk factor.
  • Sun exposure. The damage caused by the sun has been linked to a greater incidence of thread veins
