Red Blood Vessels / Broken Capillaries

Red blood vessels (sometimes referred to as ‘broken capillaries’) tend to appear on the face as we age.

The typical locations they appear are around the nose, across the cheeks, chin and sometimes the central forehead. They can sometimes be associated with excess alcohol consumption, although more commonly they are related to sun damage accrued from years of foreign holidays, or working out doors.

Non-surgical treatments for red blood vessels / broken capillaries include:

Vascular Laser

This is probably the most effective way of treating red blood vessels. It can however cause bruising, which can be difficult to disguise and take a couple of weeks to clear. The vessels have a habit of recurring, and the treatment normally needs to be repeated after a couple of years.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

This can be almost as effective as laser, although it does not cause any bruising and there is typically no down time with this treatment. Like with laser, the vessels have a habit of recurring, and the treatment normally needs to be repeated after a couple of years.
