Capillaries, or broken capillaries, are very common at any age and are usually caused by a couple of things:
- 👨👩👧👦 Genetics
People whose family members experience broken capillaries are more likely to have them, too.
- ☀️ Sun exposure
Sun damage can enlarge the blood vessels and draw them closer to the skin.
- 🥵 Rosacea
This is a common condition that causes the skin to become flushed and red due to enlarged veins. People with rosacea often experience broken capillaries.
- 🤧 Trauma to the skin
Like blowing your nose often, causes bruising can also cause broken blood vessels. In this case, the blood vessels will often heal as the bruise does.
Your Software treatment can actually improve the look of broken capillaries because of the retinoids in your cream.
