Broken Capillaries

Home » Skin » Skin Treatments » Broken Capillaries

One morning, you wake up and suddenly see the start of redness on your cheeks and nose. Very soon the condition becomes even more noticeable and your research on the Internet for possible causes and cures.

Most likely the redness is actually broken capillaries, commonly referred to as ‘spider veins’ or thread veins. These tiny red veins are the result of the capillary walls breaking and creating the red blotches or small red lines on the skin. The purpose of these capillaries is to bring blood and nutrients to the skin, keeping it healthy.

Broken capillaries are usually more visible in later life due to the thinning of the skin and the reduction of collagen and elastin. When they appear on the face especially around the nose, cheeks and chin they can quickly become the cause for distress leading to the lack of self-confidence.

Although women seem to suffer from broken capillaries more than men, broken capillary treatments are now available to reduce and clear the condition. Laser, IPL Photorejuvenation and Sclerotherapy are new treatments in assisting the skin in looking firmer and smoother giving you that youthful look you desire.
