Broken capillaries or “spider veins”, medically known as “TELANGIECTASIA” occur when dozens of tiny veins twist and dilate, which occurs in really small superficial veins that are in the outer layer of skin between the dermis and epidermis, creating the web-shaped red, blue bruise-like spots on the face. Spider veins can develop anywhere on the body, but they’re more common on the face and legs. Spider veins pose no health threat; however, most people would like to get rid of it for cosmetic reasons.
You may be able to identify broken blood vessels at home; however, you may want to see a doctor for confirmation.
