Skin Complexion | Facial Redness

Facial Redness / Telangiectasias are small, broken, or widened blood vessels found near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes. They typically appear as fine pink or red lines and will whiten when under pressure. Once the telangiectasia appears on the skin, the tiny lines can range in color from red through blue and purple.

Telangiectasias typically measure between 1 and 3 millimeters in width. They are usually harmless but can cause itching and be painful because of pressure on the small veins.

Telangiectasias commonly occur on the face, nose, chin, and cheek. Facial redness caused by telangiectasias on the face are due to broken blood vessels or spider veins in the face.

There are several factors which can lead toward the development of telangiectasia. These include:

  • Genetics
  • Sun and wind exposure
  • Medications that widen blood vessels
  • Pregnancy
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Trauma to the skin
  • Surgical incisions
  • Acne
  • Prolonged use of oral or topical corticosteroids
