Broken blood vessels or visible redness on the skin are known medically as vascular skin conditions. Vascular skin conditions are characterized by a slow and progressive disorder of the circulatory system, usually indicating a narrowing of the arteries, veins, and other lymphatic vessels that result in restricted blood flow. One of the most common vascular problems is facial redness, which may be caused by various conditions and these may include broken blood vessels or rosacea. When the tiny blood vessels on the face become broken, it results to a visible reddening of the skin on the affected areas. Common causes of these broken blood vessels are obesity, hormonal changes, alcohol intake or family history. If broken blood vessels are the cause of the redness, then there are a variety of treatment options we offer to our patients to quickly and easily treat the condition.
