What causes Thread Veins / Broken Capillaries?

Broken capillaries or dilated capillaries form for a variety of reasons.  The epidermis helps to regulate our temperature, when we are hot the veins dilate and when we are very cold they contract to help conserve heat.  When this happens rapidly over time the elasticity of the capillary wall is damaged and a spider vein forms.

We can also develop Telangiectasia from circulatory problems, damage through squeezing spots, diet and hormonal problems, pregnancy and they can even be hereditary.
