Red Spots - causes.: There are multiple causes of red spots (telangiectasia) of the skin including aging, genetics, sun exposure, hormones and medications. Sometimes no reason can be found. An easy treatment for these (excluding the eyes) is either a topical laser or fine needle radio frequency. They do recur over time.
