Veins and redness

Telangiectasia, commonly known as broken veins, is a concern frequently seen at The Skin to Love Clinic. Simply put, telangiectasia is broken blood vessels found on the face or body; the nose and cheeks tend to be the areas you most often notice broken veins.

At the Skin to Love Clinic, we treat a variety of concerns relating to broken veins and redness, such as Cherry Angiomas, also known as Campbell De Morgan spots. These are lesions on the skin which look similar to small blood blisters and are a very common concern which stems from small dilated capillaries.

Tiny blood vessels are usually very superficial and you can easily and often unknowingly damage them; physical trauma, which could be something simple such as scrubbing the skin too hard, can cause these capillaries to break and become noticeable. There can be numerous factors as to why the skin may appear red, flushed or have visible blood vessels, these include:

  • Age; as your skin ages, it becomes thinner allowing you to see underlying structures, such as blood vessels, more clearly than before.
  • Sun damage; UV rays can accelerate your skins ageing process as described above. Sunburn may weaken your blood vessels and cause them to break.
  • Rosacea; a common skin disease associated with redness and flushing.
  • Acne scarring; very often there can be heightened colour and redness left behind after acne.
  • Pregnancy; you may notice that veins become more obvious during and post pregnancy.
  • Lifestyle; alcohol can aggravate veins, causing them to appear more obvious. Smoking can prematurely age the skin, allowing veins to be more readily seen.

Once veins or symptoms of a skin disease appear it is unlikely that they will fade without some intervention. You may need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results; this is not uncommon. If you have a concern such as Rosacea, for example, you may need occasional maintenance treatments to keep on top of your symptoms.

At The Skin to Love Clinic you will start your journey with a consultation with our medical team who will assess your concern and discuss treatment options with you. Treatment options include Veinwave and Regenlite and Byonik

If you would like to discuss treatment for redness or broken veins, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team who will happily arrange a consultation for you.

“Great service and amazing results! 10 out of 10!” Simon

“Really happy with my experience in the skin to love clinic. I went to see the dermatologist after suffering with Rosacea for a year and within 2 months my skin is almost flawless! Big relief to have clear skin again… I had been to my GP on numerous occasions prior to this but with no success in treating it so wasted a year suffering, I regret that I didn’t go to skin to love Clinic in the first place. I would definitely recommend lovely staff & very professional.” Belinda

“On every visit to the clinic I am made to feel welcome. Staff are professional and knowledgeable and my skin is noticeably improved. Would stemsrecommend.” Jill

“My experience of the clinic was 1st class!!! The staff are polite, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable Sunburn displaying the utmost professionalism. There are no pushy sales tactics whatsoever and I wholly felt that the aim of both clinic and clinician is to achieve the optimum results for the individual client.  I can’t recommend the clinic more highly.” Alyssa

“From the moment you walk into Clinic the service is very impressive. Reception along with Jane & Kerry, were very professional and put me at ease straight away. They are very knowledgeable and answered all my questions, which put me at ease, a good thing when you’re having a new treatment. The main thing that stood out for me was the time Jane took when I was having a treatment. I have been a client now for about 4 months & my family and friends have notice my skin looks a lot better.  The clinic is in a beautiful building and has all the latest equipment.   So please don’t change a thing, as you have a loyal customer in me.” Yvonne

“Skin to Love is an outstanding example of client care and attention.  The staff are friendly and easy to meet.  The professionalism demonstrated in each step of the process is complete without being intrusive. Instead of “pushing” treatments, there is an open discussion (not too critical in my case since I spent too much time in the sun as a teenager) of the options available and the likely results.  In short, the best of Harley Street without the poshness.” Richard
