Laser Treatments Help Individuals Overcome Broken Capillaries on the Face

There are many issues that can arise and cause a person’s face to look less attractive than they would like. Many types of damage can arise as a result of unprotected sun exposure. One of these issues is broken capillaries. Broken capillaries are like small spider veins but they are red in appearance. These can occur in different areas of the face and are particularly common around the nose. With a laser treatment, broken capillaries can be safely and effectively removed.

Laser Treatments Remove Broken Capillaries

Broken capillaries can make the skin look less attractive and splotchy. To remove these broken capillaries, a laser can be used. Pulse lasers have the ability to target red tissue but do not cause any destruction to surrounding tissues.

Laser treatments for broken capillaries rarely cause any major discomfort but they can cause some redness and irritation. Depending on the strength of the laser treatment, some bruising may begin to occur. Using cold compresses can help to reduce swelling and prevent bruising.

In some cases, individuals end up needing more than one treatment to ensure all of their broken capillaries are removed. Dr. Zacharia consults with his patients before their treatment to help them understand their options and what will need to be done to ensure the capillaries are properly destroyed.

As the laser breaks up the capillaries, they then begin to be absorbed by the body. This takes a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on how quickly the immune system responds to the destroyed tissues.

What Can Patients Expect After Treatment?

There is typically no downtime needed after these laser procedures and most people tolerate the treatment without any major adverse side-effects. As the body goes to work on removing the destroyed capillaries, the skin will become brighter and clearer.
