Telangiectasia (Spider Veins) treatments in Cardiff, Newport, Caerphilly and South Wales.

Telangiectasia is a condition in which widened venules (tiny blood vessels) cause threadlike red lines or patterns on the skin. These patterns, or telangiectases, form gradually and often in clusters. They’re sometimes known as “spider veins” because of their fine and weblike appearance.

Telangiectases are common in areas that are easily seen (such as the lips, nose, eyes, fingers, and cheeks). They can cause discomfort, and some people find them unattractive.

While telangiectases are usually benign, they can be a sign of serious illness. For example, hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare genetic condition that causes telangiectases that can be life-threatening. Instead of forming on the skin, telangiectases caused by HHT appear in vital organs, such as the liver.
