Problems with capillaries
Capillaries are usually invisible. When, however, congenital or acquired disorders cause them to increase in size, they can cause different types of blemishes on the face.
- Erythrosis, namely the intense and chronic redness of certain parts of the face (cheekbones, cheeks, sides of the nose).
- Rosacea, also associated with capillary vasodilatation which become very visible, such as a pattern, on the skin.
- Telangiectasias and micro varicose veins, namely the dilation of small blood vessels that take on a red or bluish red.
- Flat angiomas, which are those red or dark "spots" of different shapes that can appear both during childhood and with the course of time.
