What is it and what causes it?
Broken capillaries result in visible blemishes or enlarged blood vessels that appear on the face and other parts of the body. The fine, red spots or veins are commonly located on the nose, chin, or cheeks and usually appear as a result of aging, pregnancy and childbirth, hormonal contraception or replacement therapy, sun damage and skin conditions such as Rosacea.
At the Tasmanian Skin Clinic, IPL treatment for broken capillaries is available. This simple and effective procedure involves IPL exposure to the affected veins, impeding their blood flow and eventually causing them to break down. After a specialised treatment cycle, the affected veins collapse away from the surface of the skin, leaving it smooth and blemish-free.
