Broken Capillaries (Telangiectasia) and Spider Veins

Broken Capillaries (Telangiectasia) and Spider Veins

Broken capillaries are commonly referred to as spider veins or medically known as telangiectasia. These tiny, congealed blood vessels can usually be found on the nose, cheeks and chin and are particularly common in thin, sensitive skins. Spider Veins can also be found on the legs, mainly in the thigh and ankle area.

Broken Capillaries form when multiple small blood vessels near the surface of the skin dilate. Whilst the capillary is not technically broken, weakness in the vessel wall or an imbalance with blood flow creates the pooling and the appearance of small reddened networks like a spider’s web.

The formation of telangiectasia is often genetic, however external and internal aggressors may include:

  • Allergies
  • Sun damage
  • Medication
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • The consumption of spicy food
  • Naturally occurring with age

Broken Capilleries Treatment Solutions

The Australian Laser & Skin Clinic provides Photo Rejuvenation therapy to address and treat broken capillaries on the face. All treatments are performed by paramedically trained skin clinicians or registered nurses.

Photo Rejuvenation

Medical Grade Intense Pulse Light offers an effective solution that minimises and in some cases eliminates the appearance of broken capillaries, causes little discomfort and produces long lasting results with minimal down time. The wavelength discharged through the pulse of the laser enables the light to reach the targeted capillaries or blood vessels under the skin, collapsing the broken capillaries and veins without harming the outer layers of the skin, whilst also improving the overall appearance of the skin tone out encouraging the production of collagen to thicken out the skin.
