For many people, visible facial veins can be an embarrassing reality they have to live with. Fortunately, there are ways an individual can treat various types of facial veins. One of the common forms of exposed facial veins is called spider veins, which tends to be blue or red in color and can appear anywhere on the face. Usually, individuals who suffer from spider veins see them around the nose area.
Broken capillaries, which result in dilated blood vessels cause spider veins that look like tree branches. Spider veins usually appear on the face and leg area, and are more common among older people because as people age, skin becomes thinner. Some of the causes of facial spider veins are prolonged exposure to the sun, genetics, sensitive skin, and previous acne. Food allergies and harsh cleansers can also cause them.
Proper skin hygiene, weight loss, and decreasing salt intake can help decrease the appearance of facial veins. But the most common and most effective treatment of spider veins is a procedure called sclerotherapy, which has been in use since the 1930s. During sclerotherapy, an individual’s veins are injected with a saline solution. After three to six weeks, these veins shrink and eventually disappear. The treatment, which takes up to three sessions, may not permanently abolish spider veins. Spider veins may return, but can be retreated.
Another treatment option is called intense pulsed light treatment (IPL), though it is less popular, and may not be suitable for every skin type. The machine used in this procedure releases intense pulses of light on problem areas, which target and destroy the veins. One of the drawbacks of this procedure is that it can get costly and takes up to several treatments to achieve results. Laser treatments, which can also get expensive, use heat energy to damage or destroy a vein. Laser treatments work slowly, but are a less painful solution.
Besides spider veins, another type of exposed facial veins is called varicose veins. Though not as common as spider veins, varicose veins are harder to hide because they bulge out of the surface of the skin. Varicose veins can appear anywhere on the face and vary in size and thickness. These types of visible facial veins are usually caused by exposure to the sun, genetics, aging, steroid use, or facial trauma.
Applying sun block may prevent the exposure of varicose veins, but there are no ways of guaranteeing that these veins will not show up on one’s skin. However, one can seek treatment for exposed facial varicose veins. One of the treatments is electrosurgery, where electric waves are targeted toward the face through a needle and destroy the veins. This is generally a fast treatment, but can be quite painful. Similar to treatment for spider veins, laser surgery is also an option, but works more slowly than electrosurgery, and is not as commonly used.
Neither spider veins nor exposed varicose veins pose much of a health threat to individuals, but for many, the appearance of these facial veins can be embarrassing and hurt self esteem. If an individual who has spider veins does not wish to undergo treatment, simple cosmetic applications, such as concealers, may diminish their appearance. But because varicose veins are elevated from the skin’s surface, treatment may be the best solution for these types of facial veins.

Facials are a series of treatments meant to improve the look, feel, and composition of skin on the face and neck. There are dozens of different facials, often geared toward certain conditions or beauty wishes, such as reducing acne or fine lines. A European facial is a basic treatment meant to generally improve the look of skin. A European facial is often considered a great “introductory” facial, as it uses basic and uncomplicated steps to provide glowing, healthy skin.
Though salons and spas may offer slight variations, many European facials follow a basic pattern. First, the skin is cleansed to remove traces of makeup and topical buildup. An exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin and encourage cell turnover often follows this. Steam may also be used to help release dirt and oils from deep within the pores. Steam may be applied with warm towels or a steam generator placed over the face.
A European facial typically takes between 60-90 minutes, although less expensive “mini-facials” are often available and last about 30 minutes. Be certain to inform the spa of any allergies before the treatment begins, so they can adjust treatment options. Spa technicians will often perform a skin analysis before a European facial to ensure that the products used will benefit the client’s skin type and tone.
After a European facial, skin should feel refreshed and hydrated. Some people may notice a healthier glow or more even skin tone that can last for days or even weeks. If skin feels dry, reddens, or begins to flake, contact the spa. Redness or irritation can be signs of an adverse reaction to a product, due to an allergy or skin sensitivity. The spa will be able to give ingredient lists of products used, and may offer to help correct the condition for free.

A facial peel is a cosmetic, chemical treatment that can be performed at by or with a dermatologist to help lessen the appearance of blemishes, freckles, age spots, light scarring, and any number of other skin irregularities on the face. Also called chemical peels, facial peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and give new life to sun-damaged skin.
Commercial facial peel creams and dermabrasion systems can be purchased at drugstores or beauty supply shops. These products offer a mild concoction of chemicals and alphahydroxy acids that remove dead skin cells, uncovering layers of new skin that look fresher and more even in tone. The cream is applied to the face and left for several minutes to work, then scrubbed or rinsed off with water. Some systems come with a dermabrasion tool that works the facial peel into the skin, sloughing off dead skin cells in the process. Allergic reactions are possible with topical facial peel treatments, so always test a small patch of skin first before proceeding.
For a deeper peel, a dermatologist can recommend a professional facial peel to be performed by a plastic surgeon. These can be done with stronger chemical creams, or even with laser surgery. Generally speaking, a professional peel will remove more layers of skin, thereby removing or at least lessening the appearance of deeper and darker blemishes. The procedure is most successful with superficial skin marks and scarring; those with deep scarring or large patches of dark pigmentation are not good candidates for a chemical peel. These facial peel procedures are also effective in reducing wrinkles without having to undergo a complete facelift.
There are some risks involved with having a chemical facial peel. Some of the chemicals used in facial peels can cause bleaching of the skin, and there is a slight risk of infection and even scarring. After a chemical peel, the skin will appear red and swollen, and feel tender to the touch. Scabs may form as well, since layers of the skin are burned off with the chemicals. Normally these side-effects will resolve themselves after a few days, but with very deep facial peels the recovery time is much longer.
Facial peels are purely cosmetic in nature. They do not slow down the aging process, nor do they cure chronic skin conditions. Mild facial peels can be repeated every three to six months, but deeper peels require more time between procedures to allow the skin to recover and renew itself. As with any surgical procedure, consult with your doctor before undergoing a chemical facial peel. Make certain that your plastic surgeon is qualified and capable, and pay close attention to the information you'll receive regarding care and treatment for your face once the procedure has been completed.

Facial is a very general term for skin treatments usually performed by a licensed aesthetician. As the name implies, it is skin treatment for the face, though you may be lucky and get some neck or shoulder massage (and sometimes even a foot massage) too. There is a variety of types of facials, different types of products used, and there can be some variation in length. The typical extensive facial generally lasts about an hour or even longer, and other treatments called “mini-facials” may only take about 15-30 minutes.
The basic goals of facials are the same regardless of treatment, and you can expect the following things to occur when you have one:
You might also spend some time with hot cloths or your face, and the aesthetician may devote a little time to finding the products that best work with your skin. Usually you will get quite a bit of advice from the person giving the facial on exactly what products she/he thinks are best suited to you for daily skin care, but if you already use things you like, you don’t necessarily have to spend several hundred of dollars more buying all new products. Retail of these products can be a vital part of an aesthetician’s business.
Many parts of a facial can be very comfortable and soothing, but some people have trouble with blackhead extraction. Poor technique can result in broken capillaries or more breakouts and the extraction itself can be painful. You can opt not to have this extraction if you prefer or if in the past, it has yielded poor results.
Will your skin look terrific right after a facial? Actually it may be a little irritated and red especially if you had extraction. You should not plan to have a facial within a few days of major events where you want to look your best. For instance, do not get a facial the day of or the day before your wedding, class reunion or prom. Some people also have sensitive skin and may have prolonged reactions to facials or the products used during one. If you have known sensitivities or skin allergies you should discuss this with the aesthetician prior to booking an appointment.
Facials can be pricey, frequently at least $60 US Dollars (USD) and often significantly more than that. You can save quite a bit of money by performing most of this skincare at home, though many aestheticians claim you should have a minimum of four facials a year. However, there are many people who swear by their own home skin treatments or by prepared treatments that can be easily purchased and improve the look and health of skin.

A dermal filler, or derma filler, is a procedure in which collagen material is injected into the skin to remove fine lines and wrinkles. These injections are minimally invasive and require little or no recovery time. Depending on the type of filler that is used, the price for the procedure is still typically less expensive than more-invasive surgical procedures.
In the past, the only way to remove the signs of aging was to have a facelift. This surgical procedure was extensive, followed by weeks of pain and healing. People looking to reverse the signs of aging now have other options. Dermal fillers have become an increasingly popular alternative to facelifts.
Dermal fillers are not a permanent cure for the aging process. The injections provide only temporary results. There are many different types of dermal fillers and the results may vary from one person to the next. After an injection has been administered, there may be side effects such as bleeding or bruising. There typically is a degree of pain during the injection, and patients may experience redness up to 36 hours after the procedure.
Generally, dermal fillers are made from different types of products such as human collagen, hyaluronic acid, and donor-tissue fat. Each filler has different strengths and weaknesses. Based on a patient’s needs, certain fillers may work better than others. It can be important for a person to work closely with a physician who understands his or her needs.
The first legally approved dermal filler injection in the United States was bovine collagen that was derived from domestic cattle. A main concern with this injection is that some people develop allergies to it. Skin testing usually is required before this injection can be used. Because of the problems with allergies, the use of bovine collagen has fallen out of favor.
Although fillers have become a common way to reduce minor skin imperfections, they do not completely remove the need for more invasive procedures. Since fillers are temporary and only used on minor concerns such as wrinkles and lines, there are situations where more invasive procedures are chosen. In some cases, patients still chose facelifts or other surgical procedures for a longer-lasting benefit.

A back facial is a skin treatment, which is formulated specifically for the back. Some spas refer to a back facial as a “bacial.” Back facials utilize many of the techniques used in skin treatments for the face, and they are supposed to clarify and soften the skin of the back while providing a deep moisturizing treatment, which will leave the client with a healthy, glowing back. Back facials for both men and women are available, in a wide range of formulations, which target specific skin types or issues such as clogged pores and acne on the back.
People often have trouble maintaining a skin care regimen for their backs since the back is notoriously hard to reach. With the assistance of back scrubbing shower tools, most people can keep their backs clean, reducing clogged pores and other skin problems, but it can be hard to moisturize the back or to treat dry skin and other irritating and sometimes unsightly conditions. While a back facial might sound slightly silly, this spa treatment can actually be quite beneficial, especially for people who spend a lot of time in low-backed clothing or swimsuits.
Typically, a back facial starts with a deep steaming which is designed to open the pores and soften the skin. An aesthetician may use various treatments such as an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin from the back, and he or she may perform extractions on clogged pores. After steaming and exfoliation, the back can be covered in a rich moisturizing mask, and some aestheticians offer massage to release tension in the back.
Skin treatments such as glycolic peels and dermabrasion are also available for the back, depending on your skin type and any skin issues, which you may be experiencing. Spa staff are usually happy to recommend various treatments for you, and they should also be able to inform you about ingredients used in back facial treatments. You should also disclose any allergies to the spa staff, as peculiar ingredients can pop up in skincare treatments.
Back facials are not recommended for pregnant women, since clients must lie on their stomachs to receive a back facial. The duration of a back facial can vary widely, depending on which treatments you select and the spa; if timing is an issue, be sure to inform spa staff when you book. As with any sort of spa appointment, it is a good idea to arrive early so that you have plenty of time to fill out paperwork, change into a spa robe, and relax for your appointment.
