Broken Blood Vessels
Broken capillaries or telangiectasias are characterized by fine red to purple lines on the skin that cause a reddish color to the skin. These changes are most commonly due to chronic sun exposure and thus are present on areas of skin with the greatest amount of cumulative sun exposure. Other causes of Broken Blood Vessels include inflammatory skin diseases including rosacea.
Acne Rosacea is a long-term disorder affecting the skin of the nose, cheeks, chin or forehead that is characterized by redness, pimples, solid raised lesions, and dilated blood vessels. The condition develops slowly and usually gets worse unless treated. In most patients, the condition waxes and wanes repeatedly for no apparent reason.
Early intervention is recommended because broken capillaries worsen over time and become more difficult to treat as they enlarge.
