Spider Veins and Broken Capillaries, also known as telangiectasia, are small, visible blood vessels near the skin's surface with various causes. Genetics can play a significant role, so if your family has a history of these conditions, you may be more susceptible. Aging is a common factor, as the skin's blood vessels weaken and become more visible over time.
Hormonal changes, such as those during pregnancy or menopause, can contribute, as can sun exposure, which can damage the skin and dilate blood vessels. Trauma, injury, alcohol, smoking, obesity, and prolonged sitting or standing can also increase the risk.
While generally benign, spider veins and broken capillaries can be a cosmetic concern. Optimal treatment options, including laser therapy and sclerotherapy, can help minimize or eliminate these visible blood vessels.
