Causes of Capillaries


Most facial veins and capillaries are caused by environmental factors such as sun and wind damage. However, there may also be a genetic predisposition to the problem. Men are often concerned that facial veins give the impression they drink excessive amounts of alcohol. Whilst alcohol does not cause the facial veins or capillaries to appear, it can contribute to a dilated appearance. Other triggers for facial flushing include coffee, tea, heat, exercise and emotion. Facial Veins and Capillaries can often be attributed to:

  • Hereditary Factors
  • Chronic sun exposure
  • Exposure to wind damage
  • Exposure to extreme temperatures
