Let's Compare Broken-Capillaries and Spider-Veins


Broken capillaries are found on the cheeks and nose. They appear as small red / pink threads under the skins surface. They often occur when the capillary walls narrow and widen too quickly causing the muscles int he walls to tear. This in turn allows the blood to seep out resulting in broken capillaries.

Additional data for broken-capillaries may be on the way.


Telangiectasias (Spider veins) or angioectasias are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes, measuring between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter.

Spider veins can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. They can also develop on the legs, specifically on the upper thigh, below the knee joint, and around the ankles.

Additional data for spider-veins may be on the way.
