Broken capillaries are considered to be unattractive to most people in Guelph and elsewhere. They can drastically detract from a person’s appearance. It is most common to see people have broken capillaries on their face. This is because the skin on your face is exposed to a wide range of attacks. The skin on your face has to stand up to the weather, it has to stand up to any toxins that are in the air, it has to stand up to makeup, and it has to stand up to constant washing and cleaning.
It’s important to point out that broken capillaries are not life-threatening. Really, they’re not harmful. They are considered to be unattractive because they mean that you have red veins that are visible on the surface of your skin.
There are a lot of reasons why you might be dealing with broken capillaries. If you have this problem and if you have had this problem for an extended period of time, you know that they do not repair themselves. This does not mean that there are no options available. To the contrary, there are a lot of options that are available at our clinic in Guelph that can help make your broken capillaries less visible.
Before embarking on a treatment program to deal with your condition, it’s good to understand what it is that caused it. Broken capillaries are seen more commonly in individuals who have lighter skin. That being said, just about any person on the planet can have this problem at one time or another. Your capillaries break because the walls of the veins that carry blood through your skin get weak. As they get weak, they become larger. And this, in turn, makes them more visible through your skin’s surface.
You are going to be more prone to broken capillaries if your skin is already sensitive. The same is true of individuals who already have skin problems that they’re dealing with, like rosacea or acne. For some people, broken capillaries are just something they inherited from their parents.
Laser treatment for broken capillaries can be used on virtually any part of your body. However, most people opt for this procedure on their face. Another treatment that we have available in Guelph is the use of IPL photorejuvenation.
