Facial telangiectasis also known as spider veins, are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They usualy measure in size between 0.5 and 1.0mm in diameter and typically are seen on the nose, cheeks and chin.
Although these veins are not dangerous, they can cause people to be self-conscious or lose confidence as they can be unsightly. Women are more often likely to be affected due to higher oestrogen levels, being pregnant or consuming birth control pills. Other factors like obesity, sun exposure and overuse of AHA products may also play a part. They can also be part of a inflammatory skin condition known as Rosacea.
