Question spider vein question, please help

I need some help on spider viens or broken veins or what ever they are. I had some on my face and was told it was sun damage and had them fixed with photofacials. Well, now I am finding them on my upper sides, I have no clue to what is causing them. Do people get them in these places? I have heard more people say they get them on the legs and face, but else where? I am in my early 40's, any thoughts about the cause? Thanks

Here's a link to some reliable information.

Most of the people I know with this condition also have very fair, fine skin. Not sure whether it's because this is part of the package, or just more noticeable.

There are some herbal supplements specifically recommended for spider veins - like Horsetail (Equisetum Arvense). Suggest you try the supplements board for some advice. Also look up the "Resources Links" on the supplements board.
