What are telangiectasias and how do they develop?

Telangiectasias are visible dilations of small blood vessels, such as capillaries, that can be seen on the skin and mucous membranes. They often appear on the head, face and hands and can be present in early childhood.

Although telangiectasias are not dangerous in and of themselves, one should always consider what caused them. Usually they are of no clinical significance, but in some disorders they can be part of the symptom complex and provide diagnostically useful clues, referred to as symptomatic telangiectasias.

For example, if they occur due to overexposure to the sun (actinic damage), it may indicate that skin cancer can also occur.

If they are associated with liver cirrhosis, other risks of liver cirrhosis can also cause problems. Telangiectasias don't usually go away on their own and can get thicker over time.


Treat telangiectasia

Telangiectasias are basically similar to spider veins, but mainly appear on the face.

Telangiectasia, couperose, spider veins - what's the difference?

In fact, these three indications are very similar in appearance and genesis. Especially in the case of couperose and telangiectasia, the two terms often describe the identical picture - in many cases it is more a question of professionalism.

The term "couperose" is used as a more commonly known term for dilated veins on the nose, cheeks and forehead. However, physicians tend to use the term "telangiectasia" to refer to the visible expansion of the skin's capillaries. They can appear individually or in a network and can be found on different parts of the body such as the face and hands.

In contrast to the spider veins on the legs, these are finer or larger veins that usually have no health consequences. However, in rare cases they can indicate internal or skin diseases such as collagenosis, mycosis fungoides, basal cell carcinoma, scleroderma or liver disease. Spider web-like telangiectasias are also referred to as "spider nevus".

Phlebolysis – particularly effective for small, visible veins

Small, visible vessels, such as those that occur in couperose, spider veins and telangiectasias, are a virtually ideal indication for phlebolysis - this specializes in destroying small vessels through a combination of electrolysis and high frequency (radio waves). The device remains cold so that no burns are possible and the surrounding tissue remains intact. The fine veins are broken down by the body itself after the treatment.
