All other reasons that are most often voiced in the literature, such as the action of ultraviolet light, alcohol, cold and emotions, this is just a consequence of primary disorders of the nervous regulation.
Undoubtedly, all these factors accelerate the emergence of a network of dilated vessels on the face, but even complete an exception does not relieve the person from rosacea.
Accordingly, it is impossible to cure rosacea. It is only possible to remove dilated blood vessels that appear on the skin surface and thereby improve its appearance. Any ways to remove spider veins with rosacea have only a temporary effect, since the remote will gradually appear new.
