Broken Blood Vessels

Broken blood vessels, also named “spider veins”, or Telangiectasia, occur when veins become dilated or enlarged, just beneath the surface of the skin.  Telangiectasia is a common skin condition that usually affects clients in their 40s, 50’s and 60’s.

The condition is where widened blood vessels cause threadlike red lines or patterns on the skin, these lines usually appear slowly over a period of time and usually in small clusters.

They develop and can appear anywhere on a person’s body, but they’re more common on a person’s face and legs. Although harmless, broken blood vessels can become a nuisance if they make you self-conscious and can affect a person’s self-esteem.

There are many causes of broken blood vessels on the face.

Some of which are as follows:

  • Heredity and genetics. For unknown reasons, spider veins tend to run in families.
  • Pregnancy. An increase in estrogen hormones during pregnancy can lead to broken blood vessels.
  • Pregnancy-related spider veins heal on their own after delivery. Skin changes are common in pregnancy.
  • Excessive sun exposure can enlarge your blood vessels. If you get a sunburn, the top layer of skin may peel and temporarily make some of the blood vessels in your face more noticeable.
  • Weather changes. Hot weather increases blood vessel dilation.
  • Environmental or chemical irritants.
  • Alcohol consumption. Moderate or occasional alcohol consumption can cause your skin to flush due to the enlargement of blood vessels. Binge drinking and heavy alcohol use can eventually lead to spider veins.
  • Injuries. Minor to significant injuries can lead to bruising. With bruises on your face, broken blood vessels may also be noticeable.
