Fine red veins on the cheeks and nose can be caused by a number of reasons.
People with fine skin are often prone to this condition and it is made worse by sunbathing, outdoor activities in cold or windy weather, pregnancy and eating hot and spicy foods. It can also be hereditary.
People with this condition often feel very self-conscious.
Little red spot-like veins, often with fine vessels leading from them, are called spider naevii. These can range from tiny red dots to quite large spots.
Thread veins and spider naevii can be treated successfully with electrolysis at a very affordable price.
