  Telangiectasia (tel ANGE ek TA sia) - Dilated Capillaries

Telangiectases are tiny red "spider veins" or vascular blemishes which commonly appear in the corners of the eyes or on the surface of the ears and cheeks exposed to sunlight.

Telangiectases can have a variety of causes:

  • health & disease
  • aging
  • sun & light exposure
  • skin injury
  • extremes in environmental temperatures
  • alcohol
  • medication
  • surgery
  • and that ever bothersome factor, heredity.

Although these telangiectases are harmless, their unique appearance can be frustrating, and Barbara's Electrology Studio in Mission Viejo, Orange County can help.
