Redness-Broken Capillaries

Broken capillaries

Broken blood vessels on the face, or spider veins, are enlarged capillaries that occur just beneath the surface of the skin. Genetics, sun exposure, sneezing, and many other factors can cause them. Spider veins often occur on the face or legs, though they may appear anywhere on the body. Spider veins do not cause any other symptoms, and they are not a risk to health. However, some people may dislike their appearance.

 

What causes PIH?

The cause of PIH is over production of a compound called melanin by the pigment producing cells in your skin. Inflammation from any cause can lead to PIH. In susceptible individuals that produce an exaggerated melanin response (usually ethnic – Asian skin types), PIH can be a sequelae.

Who is prone to PIH?

Darker skin types including ethnicities such as Asians, South Americans, & Middle Easterners are more prone to pigmentation changes. This is because the pigment producing cell, called the melanocyte is more active. Additionally, patients who love the sun or do not sun protect are more prone to pigment.
