Treating skin redness & capillaries returns a more even tone to the skin.
Capillaries and diffuse redness can be treated without surgery using IPL or laser.
Broken capillaries are small blood vessels that result in a motley skin tone and develop due to sun damage, rosacea or trauma.
How To Treat Broken Capillaries On Face
The Cutera IPL is a non-invasive approach to treating broken capillaries on the face. The procedure offers the advantage of treating pigmentation problems in the same treatment if this is a concern.
What areas can be treated?
Any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness or capillaries.
What does the treatment do?
A pulse of light is delivered to your face that you feel as a mild stinging sensation.
- No anaesthetic is required
- The treatment will take about 1/2 hour
- There is no down time, but may be some redness after treatment that can last up to 2- 24 hours
- Make up can be applied to hide this redness
How Many Treatments Are Required To Fade Capillaries On Face?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.
When Will You See Results?
The diffuse redness or broken capillaries decrease progressively with each treatment so mottled complexion improves after each treatment.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New broken capillaries and diffuse redness on the face can appear new sun damage or due to rosacea; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new capillaries. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
