Broken blood vessels or capillaries are one of the most common skin flaws on the face, especially since the skin is exposed to elements at every turn. For example, your face is exposed to toxic chemicals in the air, the sun, makeup, and more. The condition itself is not considered to be harmful and patients can live a happy and healthy life with broken blood vessels, they are often a cosmetic issue. Since the veins rise to the surface of the skin, they are visible by anyone who is within seeing distance of your face and it may make you feel self-conscious.

Since broken blood vessels do not heal on their own, they will remain on the surface of the skin until something is done about them. This means that you will need to receive broken blood vessels treatment. Treatment can eliminate their visibility and repair them, so that they do not cause you any more embarrassment or social shyness.

What Causes Broken Blood Vessels?

There are many different reasons why you may develop broken capillaries and typically, the environment is the number one reason. Other factors include:

  • Skin type
  • Genetic predispositions
  • Natural aging

Anyone can suffer from the condition and it is not limited to one race or ethnicity; however, the broken capillaries are more visible in those patients with lighter skin.

Broken blood vessels occur when the wall of the vein within the skin becomes dilated or weakened. This causes them to show up more clearly on the skin. People who have sensitive skin are more prone to them as well.

Treatment for Broken Blood Vessels

When it comes to treatment for a broken blood vessel, the most effective option is laser surgery. During treatment, light pulses will be directed and sent into the vein, which will stop the blood flow to them and destroy them, which results in them being absorbed by the body. Once the veins collapse from the surface of the skin, they will be gone for good.

This treatment option is ideal for broken blood vessels that appear anywhere on the body, but is most commonly used for treatment on the face where targeted treatments are required due to the sensitivity of the area.

Broken Blood Vessels or capillaries, also known as telangiectasia, are not dangerous. They occur because of a number of reasons but they are removable. The most common cause is damage to the skin from sun exposure and excess dilation from a source of inflammation or irritation such as rosacea acne. Too vigorous scrubbing of the skin can aggravate already sensitive areas, increasing the development of broken capillaries. Additionally, other factors may come into play such as age, genetics, hormones, use of birth control pills and conditions that make the facial blood vessels excessively dilate.

In our facility, we can treat these conditions with lasers. Although they will not prevent new ones from forming, we can minimize the appearance and diminish already established ones. Utilizing the Cutera Excel V, we can choose a specific treatment regimen that will target the blood vessels. Many patients see results with only one treatment, while some patients may need up to 6 treatments for optimal results.
