    It' s cluster of thread or spider veins. Usually appear on the face if you are out in all weathers for work or leisure. They are not dangerous and if you are in UK they wont be treated on the NHS as they are considered cosmetic. There are lots of quite expensive creams on the market that claim to diminish the veins but the only way to really get rid of them is by laser therapy at a private clinic. The one on your face seems to be multiple threads coming off a central point so do investigate laser treatment for permanent removal. If you are in US I am sure there must be many dermatologists who offer this treatment.

    Make sure you use a sun cream on your face .
