Broken Facial Capillaries Treatment in San Diego
Broken facial capillaries, also known as telangiectasia rosacea, are identifiable as the delicate network of tiny veins that, when damaged, create bruised or red spots on your face. Unfortunately, broken capillaries do not heal on their own and are permanent. Some of the common causes of broken facial capillaries are:
- Facial injuries
- Vigorous facial scrubbing or washing
- Thinner skin due to aging
- Sun exposure

IPL Skin Treatments are FDA-cleared, providing non-invasive, dramatic results for the treatment of broken facial capillaries. IPL uses Photorejuvenation to transmit a broad spectrum of light that is absorbed by the targeted capillaries, which destroys them without damaging the surrounding healthy skin. The capillaries are then absorbed by the body, leaving the skin blemish-free. IPL treats the full face, neck, chest or hands with no downtime necessary. Usually, four to six sessions at three week intervals will successfully address your broken facial capillaries.
Laser Genesis heats the upper dermis well below the surface of your skin, generating heat in the broken capillaries. The heated capillaries collapse and are reabsorbed by the body. Laser Genesis is a safe, discrete and effective treatment for broken capillary treatment. Results tend to be subtle yet consistent after each treatment. Four or five treatments are usually enough to give you clearer, more youthful skin. After Laser Genesis treatment, there are no embarrassing or painful side effects, such as skin irritation or bruising. Treatments are so gentle, they can be performed without topical gels or anesthetics.
The Cutera laser vein removal system delivers pulses of light energy, causing the blood within the broken facial capillaries to coagulate. The broken capillaries are then destroyed and later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow is then redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be. If you have dark, light or tanned skin, you can still get outstanding results with the Cutera laser vein removal system in just one or two treatments. Most patients report a bit of stinging during treatment, but no anesthetic is typically required. If there is any downtime, it is usually under 24 hours.
