What Are Facial Blood Vessels?Facial blood vessels which are visible and enlarged are commonly caused by:
- Diffused Redness (Rosacea) which appears as frequent redness of the face, or flushing
- Telangiectasia are fine, linear red blood vessels on the nose and cheeks. The most common type is a Spider Angioma which has a central red spot and reddish extensions which radiate outwards like a spider’s web
- Port-Wine Stains are pink or purple/red skin discolorations caused by a congenital vascular malformation
