What Causes Broken Capillaries?

Broken capillaries, also called spider veins or telangiectasias, are small, visible blood vessels that appear near the skin's surface. They commonly appear on the face, particularly around the nose, cheeks, and chin, but can also occur on other areas of the body. Several factors can contribute to the development of broken capillaries: (1) Genetics. Some people may be more prone to developing broken capillaries due to genetic factors. (2) Sun exposure. Prolonged exposure to the sun can weaken the walls of the blood vessels, making them more susceptible to damage. (3) Rosacea. This chronic inflammatory skin condition can cause redness and flushing of the skin, which can contribute to the development of broken capillaries. (4) Injury. Trauma or injury to the skin, such as from surgery or a facial injury, can damage blood vessels and lead to broken capillaries.
