Dear patient,

Indeed, exposure to ultraviolet rays can cause accelerated skin aging, spider blood vessels, and increased blood vessel fragility. This may be what's going on; all of these effects are cumulative, and the more you expose yourself the higher the risk of developing those.

Yours truly,
