Broken capillaries veins are thin, spidery, ribbon-like lines that can be found most commonly on the lower part of you face. Like around the nose, cheeks, and mouth. These broken capillaries can typically be found in areas of chronic sun damage. Usually in fair-skinned individuals. These broken capillaries do not hurt and are not harmful, but can affect one’s appearance.
There are a number of factors that can cause these broken capillaries to appear. Some of these causes include:
- • Aging
- • Prolong sun exposure
- • Pregnancy and childbirth
- • Excessive alcohol use
- • Genetics
- • Rosacea, a skin condition that triggers facial redness from a combination of bumpy skin, acne, and broken capillaries
