Facial Thread Veins
Facial thread veins are broken blood vessels on the face that become dilated and appear as blue, purple or red ‘spider veins.’ These can be caused through sun damage, ageing, injuries, hormonal shifts or a reaction to irritants. Women are more prone to getting them then men. Although they are not dangerous or hazardous to your health, they can make you feel very self-conscious and lacking in confidence.
