Telangiectasias (commonly known as "spider veins") are dilated or broken blood vessels located near the surface of the skin. They often appear as fine pink or red lines, which temporarily whiten when pressed. "Matted" telangiectasias are clusters of these small dilated blood vessels that form a pink or red patch on the skin. Telangectasias can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, chin, and chest. They can be caused by environmental damage such as sun or cold exposure and may increase as we age. Trauma to the skin such a contusions and surgical procedures are also a factor as well as radiation therapy.
