Broken Capillaries

Treatments for Broken Capillaries

Broken capillaries on face refers to enlarged blood vessels occurring just beneath the skin’s surface. This results in a web-faced red appearance that’s commonly known as “spider veins.” Spider veins usually appear on legs and face, although they can appear anywhere on your body.

Treatment

The doctor normally diagnoses the broken capillaries on face through a visual examination. There are a wide range of treatment options available, and the best treatment for broken capillaries on face is laser capillary removal.

This is the use of intense laser lights that target the individual capillaries that are dilated in order to collapse their walls. This causes them to shut down by themselves.
Your body then naturally eliminates the vessels through the lymphatic system.

Please note that laser treatment can also damage the skin making the recovery sensitive and challenging.

Other treatment options:

Retinoids

This is the use of retinoid creams that help with many other skin conditions. The doctor may recommend this treatment option, when you do not want to go through laser treatment.

Sclerotherapy

This is another treatment option that uses injections with sclerosing agents which help with the disappearance of the spider veins in a short time, usually a few weeks. They are also ideal when you do not wish to undergo laser treatment.

Final thoughts:

Please note that, with any treatment option, there are risks, and it is important to speak with your general practitioner first, before undergoing any of the above procedures.
When ready to undergo the treatment, look for a board-certified dermatologist.
