What Causes Broken Capillaries (telangiectasia rosacea)?
Capillaries are small and fine, part of the circulatory system and connect veins and arteries. Capillaries 'job' is to exchange water, oxygen, nutrients, and waste between cell tissue and the circulatory system. (Arteries carry blood to the cells and back to the heart.) Capillaries are fragile and break when damaged, usually leaving those red blotchy marks we hate on faces and legs. Broken capillaries seldom fix themselves and require some form of spider vein treatment to remove them.
What NOT To Do -- Prevention is the Best Treatment!

Don't drink too much alcohol. It can increase blood pressure and cause broken facial capillaries to dilate.
