Facial veins or broken capillaries are treated with laser therapy, such as ND Yag and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light.) These treatments are very effective in treating unsightly broken and dilated vessels as well as other unwanted vascular lesions, such as spider veins or the redness from rosacea.
Facial veins, usually spider veins, appear as connected lines resembling a sunburst or spider web pattern or as short, unconnected lines. Sometimes you may think of them as broken capillaries or blood vessels.
These lasers work by emitting a specialized light that passes through the skin and is preferentially absorbed by its target, in this case, the unsightly blood vessels on your face. The laser causes the facial veins to coagulate and fade away. Lasers are very direct and accurate.
