What are facial veins?
Have you noticed tiny facial veins or broken blood vessels on your skin? Telangiectasia, as it is medically called, is characterized by tiny veins or broken capillaries that can appear on the cheeks, nose, around the nose and around the lips. In some cases, people may experience telangiectasia on other parts of the body, such as the fingers, arms and legs.
The causes of facial veins
A common occurrence in many adults, this bothersome condition can be caused by a variety of different factors, including sun damage, aging, rosacea or genetics. While facial veins are generally more of a cosmetic concern than a medical one, they can still be an annoying issue for many patients.
Both men and women tend to dislike these unsightly blood vessels on their face, feeling like it makes them appear older while giving the skin a less luminous look. For women, facial veins may mean spending money on high-coverage foundations and taking additional time in the morning to apply it.
