BROKEN CAPILLARIES ON THE FACE

Dilated/broken capillaries within the skin have a twisted appearance and whiten on pressure.

BROKEN CAPILLARIES ARE ADDRESSED AS FOLLOWS:
Severe or old broken capillaries — IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Laser Treatment(s): small—spot size Nd:YAG laser using a pulse width of 20 ms or higher is effective in clearing a significant percentage of broken capillaries in a single treatment with minimal side effects.

A copy of the study into Variable-Pulse Nd:YAG Laser for broken capillaries is available.

Prevention of further broken capillaries and reduction in the redness of capillaries — daily topical antioxidant use, daily zinc oxide or parsol based sunscreen use and nightly retinol use.
