What are vascular lesions?
Vascular lesions are common abnormalities that affect the skin tissue. They can be inherited or acquired with time and appear on the face, neck and the body of men and woman. There are many types of vascular lesions, yet the most popular are thread veins, also called spider veins, that may appear on the face and mainly legs.
Leg thread veins are not varicose veins.
Varicose veins are larger and deeper, may appear lumpy or twisted, are usually red in color and require medical attention. Another type is Telangiectasia, which is a form of Rosacea that may appear on the face and body too. This skin disorder is simply tiny blood vessels that are close to the surface of the skin that look like thin red, purple or blue lines.
