Broken capillaries (also known as spider veins) are dilated blood vessels just beneath the surface of the skin. When they develop, they result in red spots on the cheeks, chin, and nose area. We have delicate veins under the skin that are responsible for circulation within the face, which can sometimes break, causing visible broken capillaries. Your genetics, hormones, medical conditions such as rosacea, sun exposure and aging can all contribute to broken capillaries. VBeam laser is an excellent focused treatment for unwanted capillaries. Intense pulsed light (IPL or BBL) can improve capillaries while also reducing brown spots and dyspigmentation.
We are seeing teledermatology through the end of the month.
