Almost everyone has had a burst vein at some time or other. At first, burst veins are completely harmless and more of a cosmetic problem. By the way, such a burst vein can occur anywhere, on the face, in the eye, on the legs, but also on the hands or arms. A typical symptom of burst veins is a (small) bruise.
A burst vein should therefore not be confused with so-called couperosis. Couperosis is a condition of dilated veins that cause redness around the cheeks or mouth.
The bruise caused by a burst vein is broken down by the body on its own. So if the burst vein has already appeared, there is not much more to do than wait and possibly cover the area with make-up.
In the case of couperosis, however, the situation is different. The dilated veins will remain if they are not treated. Creams are also available, which, by the way, also have a preventive effect. Ultimately, couperosis should be treated by a dermatologist. Dermatologists offer various treatment options for couperosis. For example, the dilated veins can be treated with a laser. The dilated vein then bursts and this burst vein is then broken down by the body. Ointments or creams are used to support the treatment.
The most important thing is prevention, so that every burst vein can be avoided. To do this, sufferers should first observe themselves closely: Does a burst vein tend to occur when it is too hot or too cold? Accordingly, sunbathing or visits to the sauna should be avoided. In winter, the skin should be protected from the cold with a cream. Overly spicy food, alcohol, blood pressure-increasing substances such as caffeine or certain medicines should also be avoided.
A burst vein is nothing to worry about. Redness, which is more common, can be avoided with a few tricks. If in doubt, consult your dermatologist and consider laser treatment. Call us for a free consultation or make your personal appointment.
