Redness and capillaries on the face belong to the inflammatory skin disease that is very difficult to treat. Cracked capillaries often have spidery shape. Rosacea (redness) is a chronic skin condition characterized by semi-permanent or permanent extreme facial redness (erythema), and sometimes are present and pimples.

People can have simultaneously burst capillaries and facial redness, but not necessarily. However, in most cases, people with red faces have capillaries. This is especially noticeable in the area around the nose, cheeks, chin or forehead.


The causes of the Couperosis are unknown, but experts believe that the cause is probably a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. It was found that people light skin and blue eyes have a greater predisposition for developing “telangiectasias”.

A number of factors can exacerbate this condition, especially if these factors lead to an increase in blood flow to the skin surface, which results in increased redness. Some of them include spicy foods, alcohol, extreme temperatures, sunlight, stress, strenuous training, sauna, hot tub, beauty products, corticosteroids, drugs that dilate blood vessels (including blood pressure medication).


The walls of capillaries are thin and so often reddened skin at each abrupt change of temperature. In women, enlarged capillaries usually occur due to hormonal changes, ” shallow ” skin vascularization (when the skin is transparent, but the blood vessels are visible from the outside) or sensitive skin.

The wind, low temperature and exposure to sudden changes in temperature, excessive sun exposure, inadequate nutrition, and improper skin care lead to red veins on the face and body. Very often this condition of the skin is defined as  “capillary complexion”.

The causes of the formation of capillary complexion are not yet discovered. Experts believe that in the dermis of some areas of the face and neck and chest, appearing circulation dysfunction that may be caused by, among other things, due to impaired barrier function of the skin, (which leads to external factors destroy skin cells and blood vessels) or too much exposure of the skin to harmful factors (which affect the activity of blood vessels of the skin) such as eg. UV radiation, systemic diseases of the body, medicines, allergies, etc.

In most cases, there is a combination of factors that lead to the formation of capillary dilation and capillary complexion.

Dilated capillaries usually occur in younger women, but can also be found in men and children. People who have dry skin are more prone to this problem.


Cracked capillaries on the face, usually occurring on the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. These small red blood vessels are part of wide webs of blood vessels that supply the face with blood. When the walls of these tiny vessels narrow and expand rapidly – they can crack. People who are dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin often have a thicker tissue, providing greater trauma to the blood vessels.

The hereditary here usually plays a major role (people light skin and sensitive skin are most prone), snapped capillaries on the face may be due to: inflammatory processes in the skin of the face (acne, rosacea), extreme temperature changes, sunburn, skin trauma (eg . squeezing a pimple), due to constant pressure (for example, wearing glasses), smoking, alcohol, drugs that thinning the blood, etc…

Cracked capillaries can also be developed on the legs, are often grouped according to the thigh or below the knees and ankles.
