Capillaries / Rosacea
Rosacea is a constant state of inflammation on the skin, and can lead to visible capillaries.
These dilated blood vessels are highly common on the faces of people over thirty years of age that have fair skin. Approximately one in every 20 people will suffer from broken capillaries or rosacea. Rosacea is a condition where blood vessels enlarge and give the face a constantly flushed appearance. Unlike acne, most adult patients who suffer from rosacea will not out-grow the appearance of the condition, which is why in order to treat the issue, a cosmetic professional will be needed. It can often be found around the cheeks, chin and nose and occurs more commonly in people with light skin. It is generally agreed that the biggest cause of rosacea is heredity, so if your parents suffered from broken capillaries or rosacea, it is likely that you may suffer from the skin condition too.
Many factors can contribute to these unsightly red marks including:
- Dramatic changes in temperature
- Chronic sun exposure
- Overuse of cortisone creams
- Certain autoimmune diseases
- Hot drinks and spicy foods
- Physical exertion
Emotional factors like stress, embarrassment and anxiety, can trigger blushing and can aggravate the symptoms of rosacea. You may also be far more susceptible to suffering from rosacea once you pass the age of thirty.
