Australian Vein Clinics
We are able to treat some facial veins or small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin, measuring between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter.
Telangiectasias (commonly known as “spider veins”) are dilated or broken blood vessels located near the surface of the skin.
They are usually removed only for cosmetic reasons.
Sclerotherapy treatment involves the injecting of a sclerosing solution directly into the vein. The solution acts like a glue causing the vein walls to stick together which results in the vein collapsing in on itself. The blood then re-routes to healthier veins whilst the injected/collapsed vein breaks down and gets absorbed into the surrounding tissue.
No, unfortunately not all facial veins can be removed through sclerotherapy. This is usually if they are too small or are in an area that cannot safely be treated (around the eyes).
No, most facial veins are considered cosmetic meaning there is no Medicare rebate.
