Broken blood vessels beneath the facial skin, also known as “spider-veins” or “thread veins”, have a plethora of causes. More commonly found in women, these little veins may appear during pregnancy or menopause; hormones can cause our veins to rupture, but these often fade in their own time.
Alternatively, spider veins can be caused by genetics and ageing, and in these cases they are known to increase over time, causing patients to seek non-surgical, aesthetic treatments to remove these veins.
A warmer climate and increased sun exposure has also been known to cause broken veins; this is because warmer weather conditions increase the size of blood vessels. If sunburn occurs, then peeling skin can cause veins to become more visible.
