In many cases, general rosacea can be accompanied by the appearance of spider veins (or facial veins). Known by the medical term telangiectasia, these broken capillaries can appear anywhere on your face. While generally considered harmless, many patients choose to address them for cosmetic reasons. They develop due to a venous deficiency and have been linked to high blood pressure and obesity. This deficiency can also be caused by non-medical factors, such as excessive sun exposure and rubbing or washing your face too hard. They can become more prominent as you get older.
