Telangiectasis (the singular noun, the plural is telangiectases) is a localized group of distended blood capillary vessels. Capillaries are very small blood vessels.

A telangiectasis generally looks like a red spot on the skin that may appear spidery and that blanches when pressure is applied directly to it. However, if you are concerned about an unfamiliar skin condition do not start applying pressure to it. Instead, first seek appropriate expert advice.

The word telangiectasis is included in this section because it is a type of skin lesion.

See also types of skin lesions (all on one page). This may interest students of massage, reflexology, holistic treatments of various types, beauty therapies, and other health related courses.

Further information about skin includes the structure of skin (with diagram), an explanation of what dermatology means and includes and textbooks about dermatology.
