Facial redness is a very common skin complaint. Sun damage, rosacea, aggressive skin scrubbing, some products, and even just having fair skin can cause capillaries, the smallest blood vessels on the face, to become enlarged. Over time, a large number of these “broken” capillaries can lead to a persistently red face. Though broken capillaries, also called spider veins or telangiectasia, do not pose any health risks, they can cause the skin to look mottled, blotchy and aged.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we can improve the appearance of broken capillaries with vascular laser and light-based treatments. By gently heating the capillaries during treatment, facial redness is reduced over a series of treatments with minimal recovery time. The result is a more even-toned, luminous complexion that is radiant, not red.
