The skin is laced with capillaries that transport nutrients and oxygen in the blood. Broken capillaries, blood vessels prominent near the surface of the skin or a concentration of blood vessels in a specific area of the skin can give rise to vascular lesions such as rosacea, spider veins, broken capillaries, angiomas, telangiectasias, birthmarks and other similar vascular skin conditions.
While there are many treatment options to resolve vascualar skin conditions it is important that you seek advice on treatments and procedures appropriate for your skin type before commencing your treatment plan.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) energy is recommended for treatment of vascular skin lesions. IPL treatments when done correctly will not damage the surrounding skin. Light is absorbed by the blood, destroying the vessel. Over time, the vessel disappears, restoring the skin’s natural appearance and providing you with clearer, healthier skin free of that flushed facial redness.
