Blood Vessels: Spider angiomas are abnormal collection of blood vessels of the skin with a red dot in the center and radiating smaller vessels that resemble a spider. They are commonly found on the face, neck, and hands and can occur at any age. Since they are benign, no treatment is necessary. Many resolve spontaneously.
Benign blood vessel: A spider angioma, or a spider nevus or telangiectasia, is a tiny dilated bllod vessel that is found just under the skin surface. They often have a central red spot and reddish extensions which spread out like a spider's legs or a web. They are common and are always benign. They can appear in women during pregnancy. If you have more than five spider angiomas, it can be a sign of liver disease.See 1 more doctor answer

Tiny tuft of veins: Tiny venous capillary with thread veins leading away from a central dot. Best treated with a non-ablative, vascular lasers -visible or invisible light energy which is absorbed preferentially by the hemoglobin in the red blood cells traveling in the capillaries.

Spider angiomas develop later, can enlarge over time although usually quite slowly. Protection from sun exposure is advised, and laser therapy may be an option for cosmetic purposes later in life.
