What are thread veins?

Facial thread veins are tiny just below the surface of the skin which are visible to the naked eye. They are commonly found around the cheeks and nose and are also known as spider veins or telangiectasias.

How are thread veins caused?

Thread veins are usually caused by friction, excessive heat/cold temperatures, drinking too much alcohol, genetics, acne or rosacea.
