Facial telangectasias are commonly seen at the base of the nose and cheeks and are characterized by thin red or blueish-purple thread veins, dilated capillaries, spider nevi or red veins. They can also be seen on the body as well causing distress. While there can be genetic components to the formation of telangectasias, other risk factors include sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations, medical conditions like Rosacea, and lifestyle activities like alcohol or tobacco use. Once formed, they are unable to repair by themselves but can be treated via a variety of methods that can be temporary or permanent. Often, repeat treatments may be required.
