Unfortunately, once you experience broken Capillaries on your face or body, they are present forever unless you have them professionally treated & removed.
Broken Capillaries and Spider Veins generally increases in appearance as we age and are commonly found on the face and chest. Genetics play a major role in how susceptible you are to broken blood vessels, however excessive dilation of the capillary wall can also be caused by: sun exposure, rosacea, alcohol consumption, weather changes, hot showers, pregnancy & eating spicy foods.
Capillary walls are very elastic, and blood vessels do lose the ability to contract if they’re frequently dilated, causing them to remain enlarged and very visible.
