Generally, your veins should not be visible through the surface of your skin. In some instances, veins become enlarged and pronounced, often hurting one's outward appearance and self-esteem. If you have visible veins on your nose, these are likely spider veins since larger varicose veins do not occur on the nose. Spider veins are the result of engorged veins and increased pressure. Thankfully, there are many things you can do to get rid of these visible veins on your nose.
Massage your nose daily. Massage encourages circulation, helping blood to flow more freely through your capillaries. Since spider veins occur when the blood vessels are engorged, massage can help to improve the situation. Use firm pressure to massage your nose daily for approximately 2 minutes each day.
Exercise daily. Consistent exercise improves circulation, preventing blood from pooling in your veins. Incorporate cardiovascular exercise into your daily routine and you'll notice an improvement in your nose veins.
Rub Vitamin K cream on your nose daily. Available in most cosmetic and drug stores, Vitamin K cream aids in skin health and strengthens capillaries. Since your blood vessels will be stronger, they will be less likely to become engorged.
Protect your nose from the sun's damaging rays. If you don't protect your skin from the sun, it will be more susceptible to spider veins. Wear a high-SPF sunscreen that provides broad spectrum coverage daily. If you'll be outside for extended periods of time, wear a wide-rimmed hat for additional protection.
Consider laser therapy. Lasers are commonly used to improve the appearance of spider veins. The laser will effectively break up the damaged veins, helping them to shrink and eventually disappear. Most often, repeated laser sessions are necessary to completely get rid of spider veins on the nose. Your dermatologist or laser specialist will be able to assess your situation and advise you on the number of sessions you need.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine as they dilate blood vessels. Consuming both will worsen the visible veins on your nose.
