Often occurring in areas along the face, broken (enlarged) blood vessels usually appear as thin lines on the skin that are reddish in color. A number of issues can lead to broken blood vessels, including the natural process of aging, sun damage, rosacea, the use of certain kinds of medication, extreme temperatures and windy environments, and pressure exerted on areas of the face. Broken blood vessels are very common among people with dry and sensitive skin. Since broken blood vessels and capillaries are characterized by a breaking of small veins under the skin, they will not heal by themselves. This condition can become very noticeable on the face, and cause patients to feel very self-conscious about their appearance.
