Well, your capillaries aren’t actually broken, but they have become so dilated that they are visible through the outer layers of your skin. They appear in various forms and can vary from single red dots (cherry angiomas) to look like large stains such as port wine stains. When spread further apart, they look like red threads in your face, legs or other areas of your body.

They’re most common among people who have skin that is fair, thin or very sensitive.
