Broken Capillaries, Spider Veins
Broken Capillaries/Spider Veins are smaller, red, purple, and blue vessels. They show up on the skin and look like tree branches or spiderwebs with their short, jagged, reddish lines that don’t fade away. They can be found on the face and legs and can cover either a very small or large area of skin.
The causes of broken capillaries/spider viens can range from genetics, increasing age, hormonal changes /including birth control pills/, obesity, lack of movement, constipation to excessive sun exposure. These tiny veins just under the surface of the skin are delicate and once broken, they cannot repair themselves.
Broken capillaries/spider veins become more noticeable as you age because skin becomes thinner and more transparent.
