Veins & Capillaries

The Low down on Veins & capillaries

There are a number of different conditions relating to veins and capillaries, which come in many shapes and sizes and appear on various parts of the body.

Causes

Depending on the type of condition the causes can vary. Often leg veins can be caused through pressure buildup, either as a result of pregnancy, weight gain or even frequent flying. So, don’t be too jealous of your jet setting friends as they’re more at risk. Vascular conditions can also be hereditary or caused by sun damage.

Types of

vein condition

Broken Capillaries

These are tiny broken blood vessels that can appear anywhere on the body. Often associated with getting older, they can affect anyone at any age, dependant on dietary, environmental and even lifestyle factors.

Telangiectasia

Often referred to as spider veins for their web-like appearance, they appear most commonly across the cheeks. A dense network of vessels and threadlike veins often appearing in clusters.

Cherry angioma spots

These are small red moles, more commonly found on the arms, legs and trunk of the body. They’re generally found on people above the age of 30, although they’ve also been linked to pregnancy, certain medical conditions and environmental factors. Also known as Campbell de Morgan spots, once noticed, they should be monitored as they can also be a sign of skin cancer if they’re found bleeding.

Leg Veins

Superficial leg veins that are small and red, similar to a pinhead, sometimes referred to as thread veins. These occur under the skin and can form varicose veins; the swollen and enlarged veins that become very visible.
