Facial broken veins are small unsightly superficial red, purple
or blue veins which appear around
the nose and across the cheeks and chin. These broken veins occur when the veins dilate and become larger so they are visible through the transparency of the skin. Facial veins may be hereditary or as a results of a variety of factors including damage from sun exposure, wind and extreme temperatures. Thread veins can be treated elsewhere on the body dependent
on location and size.
