Broken Capillaries

What causes broken capillaries? I just had lunch with a woman who used to be my secretary. She had many broken capillaries all over her face.... I was a little shcked - I don't remember her having them before (unless maybe she didn't wear makeup today). She tans well and tans ALOT in the summer. Does tanning cause them??? Anyone know?? If so I am never tanning my face again... I have broken cappillaries on my chest and I had one small one on my face which seems to have disappeared as a result of the smoothbeam treatments... I didn't realize it may be caused by the sun????

"Capillaries close to the surface are often more noticeable in light-skinned individuals. People call these capillaries "broken," but generally they aren't. Strong cortisone creams can produce them. Anything that heats up the body will indeed make the redness look redder."
