‘Broken Capillaries’ is a common term used to describe facial capillaries that become visible at the surface of the skin. They commonly occur on the side of the nose, cheek and chin. Broken blood vessels also occur on other areas of the body including the neck and decolletage. Broken capillaries that occur anywhere on face and body can be treated.

What Are Broken Capillaries?

Broken capillaries are not actually broken simply superficial capillaries that become visible because of damage to collagen, elastin in dermis and blood vessel walls. This damage is predominantly caused by sun exposure and in Brisbane, our high UV places us at risk of developing facial capillaries and redness, broken blood vessels on the decolletage.

What Makes You More Prone To Broken Blood Vessels & Facial Capillaries?

  • Having fair skin.
  • Sun exposure.
  • Hormones of pregnancy and the pill.
  • Rosacea.
  • Trauma to skin.
  • Broken Capillaries Treatment

    IPL an be used to treat facial capillaries on broken blood vessels on the nec and decolletage. It can be used in other body parts, but is not suitable for treating broken capillaries on legs (spider veins).

    IPL is best for treating diffuse redness from facial capillaries, of isolated broken capillaries up to 1mm. Vascular lasers, diathermy or injections may be employed depending for larger broken bloods vessel.

    How Many Broken Capillaries Treatments Are Required?

    With Cutera IPL you will see a reduction in redness after 1-3 treatments. The number of treatments varies according to the underlying cause and severity.

    Broken Capillaries Treatment – Laser vs IPL

    IPL uses a broad spectrum of visible light while lasers use a single wavelength of light. This means IPL is suited to treat combinations of sun damage problems. Diffuse redness, broken capillaries and pigmentation are treated simultaneously.

    Lasers are more precise but less versatile and more appropriate for larger isolated capillaries, especially larger capillaries and veins around the nose. Combinations of treatments can be used.

    Treatment of redness from rosacea.

    Redness caused by rosacea can be treated with IPL. It calms the red inflamed minimising redness by shutting down the surface capillaries.

    Treatment Of Facial Capillaries With Intense Pulsed Light.

    Intense Pulsed light treatment can be effective to treat facial capillaries. We use the Cutera Limelight IPL for diffuse redness, rosacea, fine facial capillaries as well as isolated capillaries up to about 2 mm thickness.

    Skin Care Products For Redness

    There are skin care ingredients that can calm an inflamed appearance and increase the integrity of your skin. Though there is no cream for broken capillaries, (you will require laser or IPL for these), a lot can be done to keep your skin calm and content.

    We recommend Dermaenergy ‘Calm The Harm’. It contains NIACINAMIDE (Vit B 3), as well as the potent anti-inflammatory and anti- irritants, BETA GLUCAN and OATMEAL and lastly SYMCARE – which helps with skin barrier repair and anti-redness.  

    Niacinamide is the hero to deduces redness in the skin and helps prevent skin flushing and rosy cheeks.

    Rosacea Treatment With IPL

    Rosacea starts as a tendency to facial flushing. Over time with repeated flushing, the superficial capillaries can become permanently dilated. The face gradually has permanent diffuse facial redness or broken capillaries. Skin care and medical treatments used early can help prevent the progression of rosacea. However, once you have the fixed appearance of broken capillaries or permanently rosy cheeks, IPL becomes effective to restore a creamier complexion. 

     1-4 treatments are required to return an even colour to your face. 


    How To Get Rid Of Broken Capillaries?

    In men, superficial capillaries and redness tend to be restricted to facial areas on the cheeks and around the nose. In women, it can extend to chin neck and d√©colletage.
