Your symptoms seem to be related to telangiectasia.

The broken blood vessels on the face that become dilate and noticeable.

There are treatments available that may be helpful in reducing the appearance of facial spider veins.

Topical treatment and sclerotherapy are the most preferred treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
