TelangiectasiasThese are small red or bluish veins that appear on the surface of the skin. They are commonly called “capillaries” and when they dilate they become very visible and form spider vein blemishes. In most cases they are formed without precise causes and even when there are no circulatory problems.

Onset can be favored by: familial predisposition, pregnancy, the “pill”, trauma or excessively vigorous massages.
