What Causes Broken Capillaries?

How to Get Rid of Broken Capillaries
At-home treatments can help prevent or minimize the appearance of a broken capillary, but they will not eliminate it completely.
Vessel Correction laser treatment is one of the most effective methods to get rid of a broken blood vessel.
How Does Vessel Correction Work?
During treatment, a laser is used to deliver targeted treatment to the broken blood vessels. The laser is attracted to the red and blue pigment in the hemoglobin (a protein that lives in the capillary).
The hemoglobin absorbs the energy of the laser, and then blasts the broken blood vessel, collapsing its walls.
Your lymphatic system will naturally remove the dead blood cells over a period of 4 to 6 weeks following your treatment, resulting in brighter, more even toned skin.
What Does It Feel Like?
You will feel a zap that’s akin to a warn rubber band snap. It may be slightly uncomfortable - but it's completely tolerable.
Vessel Correction treatments are quick, and typically take anywhere from 2-30 minutes depending on the size of the area.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Some vessels will vanish in just one session!
Others may require up to 3 treatments, spread between 4 and 8 weeks apart.
How Do I Prepare for Treatment?
Prior to your treatment, avoid significant sun exposure for at least two weeks.
Additionally, clients can not be on antibiotics for 10 days.
Is There Downtime With Vessel Correction?
There is minimal downtime involved with Vessel Correction treatments, and most patients often return back to work immediately after their procedure.
Vessel Correction is typically a permanent solution to already damaged capillaries.
After your vessel correction treatment, it’s recommended to avoid workouts, alcohol and even spicy food for three days.
Anything that raises your blood pressure may cause the coagulations created by the laser to weaken and prevent the blood from being flushed out of the area.
