Say Goodbye to Broken Capillaries Posted on October 19, 2018 by ifaaadmin Also known as spider veins, these annoying and unsightly broken capillaries can become increasingly worse over time and more difficult to hide. Prevention, early treatment and on-going maintenance will help you effectively address this concern and help to restore confidence. Commonly located on the nose, cheeks and chin, broken capillaries appear as small red vessels under the skin. If left untreated, these vessels will continue to dilate and become more noticeable. Broken capillaries can be caused by several different reasons, some of which can be preventable. The most common causes are: Environmental — sun exposure and weather extremes Age Rosacea Genetics Hormonal fluctuations Pregnancy Medical conditions such as high blood pressure Pressure e.g. squeezing acne or glasses pressing on the face Treatment is as much about repairing the existing damage as it is about prevention of further damage by improving the overall strength and health of your skin. Because vascular injury often sits at many levels in the skin layers, we have a range of treatments that can help to effectively reach and collapse the vessels. Treatments such as Excel V laser uses laser light to collapse veins and is suitable for large dilated facial vessels and rosacea. It works by targeting the redness, hyperpigmentation and damaged capillaries at the surface of the skin. The threadlike vessels selectively absorb the energy of the laser and once absorbed the vessels are sealed off as a result, diffusing the targeted area. Depending on your unique conditions and concerns our highly qualified team can advise the most suitable treatments that are right for you.
