What Causes Broken (Facial) Capillaries ?

One of the functions of the capillaries is narrowing and widening. As a patient ages, the walls of the vein become weaker and lose it’s elastic component. This causes the walls to burst and leads to blood leaking out giving it a red color to it. There is a wide number of causes which include genetic factors, skin type, and aging.

Who suffers from broken capillaries?

Almost anyone can suffer from broken capillaries. However, patient with fair skin tend to observe it more because of their skin type. Furthermore, patients with other underlying skin conditions like rosacea will develop broken capillaries more often.

How does laser work with broken capillaries?

Our health professional can use a cosmetic laser to target the broken capillaries and break up the “leaked” blood. After targeting the trapped blood, your body will remove the blood fragments over the course of a few weeks. Although broken capillary treatment is successful, broken capillaries may return. Therefore, patient should expect several ongoing treatment through the year to continue removing them.
