Broken capillaries can eventuate due to several causes which include environmental and genetic factors, skin type, trauma, and even the natural ageing process. Fair skinned people are more prone to develop broken capillaries, especially on the face, however almost anyone can suffer from this problem.

Broken capillaries occur when the walls of the veins that carry the blood to the skin weaken, dilate and become more visible against the surface of the skin. This can be from tobacco and alcohol use, extreme temperatures, or from excessive scrubbing with harsh chemical cleansers.

Broken capillaries are more likely to occur in those with thin or sensitive skin or in people suffering from other skin problems like rosacea or severe acne. Some doctors believe that in some cases, genetics may even play a part in the development of broken capillaries, but there are several options for treatment once they occur.

Blood vessels redness, and prominent veins, and some medical conditions such as rosacea are all common vascular problems that affect the face, neck and chest. These visible sign of sun damage are common and are easily treatable at Esq Clinic.

Our Fotona Nd:YAG laser can effectively target along the blood vessels for effective precision vessel closure as well as target any deeper feeding vessels which are contributing to these superficial weakened and dilated ones.

The aim behind targeting vessels and diffused redness is to shut down, collapse and close any superficial vessels so that the vessels are flushed free of the stagnant blood and cleared to ensure closure and clearance via the lymphatic system. If you can target the feeder vessel the tiny superficial vessels are effectively shut down.

All treatments are performed by our trained medical professionals, and treatments are generally quick, with minimal pain and downtime. Talk to our trained medical professionals for advice on the best treatment for your problems.
