What are Broken Capillaries, Spider Veins, Telangiectasis?
When the capillary wall shrinks and expands too fast, this causes the muscle to tear. Blood then seeps out resulting in broken capillaries.
Also known as blood vessels or red veins, the most common places broken capillaries are found include the cheeks and nose.
Dry, sensitive and dehydrated skin types are most affected as they often have thin skin that provides less defence.
Estimates indicate that unsightly veins are a common problem for more than 60% of the adult population!
The Skin and Laser Clinic Sydney offers safe treatments which will reduce abnormal vascular activity such as red flushing, veins and broken capillaries and red spots found on cheeks and around the nose with minimal downtime or risk.
