Vein Care Medical Center specializes in venous lakes treatments. A venous lake is also referred to as “phlebectasis,” and is characterized by non-proliferative vascular lesions. In short, they look like dark blue vascular “bubbles” on your ears, face or lip.
Causes of Venous Lakes
Though, again, definite causes are unknown, venous lakes are commonly believed among industry professionals to be caused by overexposure to the sun, which will lead to a dilated vascular channel that begins to fill with blood.
Venous lakes can be tender, though they are generally not harmful. However, they can resemble or be confused with nodular melanoma, so it’s important not to ignore these, even if you’re certain it’s a venous lake.
