How to Get Rid of Red Veins

Treatment of red veins is actually not much different than treatment of superficial blue or purple veins that appear in clusters just under the skin. The color of veins differs depending on factors such as their relative depth and the oxygenation of the blood.

Whatever their color, veins that develop in visible places such as the face and legs can be bothersome. Women who suffer from varicose veins, for example, often stop wearing skirts out of embarrassment. Others have trouble carrying out work shifts because of the pain caused by pressure in the problem veins.

Visible red veins that appear close to the skin’s surface often develop in conjunction with spider veins, varicose veins and rosacea. The following are treatments your vascular surgeon may recommend for removing your red veins.

Treatment For Red Veins


This is a standard cosmetic procedure for treating spider and varicose veins. A solution is injected into the problem vein that causes them to collapse and disappear over time. Most patients need at least two sclerotherapy sessions scheduled about one month apart for the best results. Microsclerotherapy can also be used on small veins. It works like sclerotherapy but uses smaller needles.

Laser Vein Therapy

During laser surgery, energy from the laser passes through your skin to the targeted vein. The heat from the laser causes the vein to collapse and disappear. Laser therapy is generally reserved for varicose veins that are smaller than 3 mm.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL has been shown to be effective against roscacea, a common skin disorder with no known cause. Those with rosacea often have red patches on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead, visible red veins, and small bumps and pimples. During this procedure, high intensity pulses of light heat up the blood vessels, causing them to break down and disappear.

Surgical Vein Removal

For the largest varicose veins, surgery is often the best option. Problem veins are tied off and removed. During endoscopic vein surgery, a camera is inserted to help the surgeon more clearly see the vein to close it.

Life Style Changes

Because prolonged periods of standing or sitting can cause red veins in the legs, it is a good idea to take breaks when possible. You should also practice regular exercise, maintain a stable body weight, and avoid ultra-tight clothing and high heels.

People with rosacea are encouraged to use sunscreen daily, and to avoid trigger foods such as hot peppers and alcohol, as well as stressful situations. If you suffer from rosascea, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics such as tetracycline, and products containing a sulfur drug or azelaic acid.

If you are bothered by red veins, or any other unwanted vascular condition, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at Surgical Arts of Inland Empire.
