When blood vessels become enlarged and broken just below the surface of the skin on the face, they form a pattern of thin red lines, commonly called spider veins (the medical name for this condition is “telangiectasia”). Facial spider veins are often found on the nose, chin, and cheeks. Though they are usually not harmful, spider veins make the face look unattractively red, and people with the condition can feel self-conscious and distressed. In addition, spider veins can sometimes be a symptom of a serious underlying disease, so it’s a good idea to have a medical specialist check them
