What Kind of Blood Vessels May be Treated?
In general, all facial broken blood vessels can be treated once you are suitable for treatment.
Why Do We Get Broken Blood Vessels on our Face?
Blood vessels are extremely thin and are very easily broken or damaged.
Simple things like scrubbing the face too hard, using the wrong facial exfoliator or even rinsing excessively with hot water can cause blood vessels to burst.
Your skin should never be “pink” or “rosy” after washing and should never feel raw after exfoliating.
Excessive sun exposure will damage the skin and will also cause capillaries to break. You’re then left with unsightly red spots on face. Pregnancy and childbirth are also associated with broken blood vessels on face, due to increased blood pressure.
Age contributes to the likelihood of getting broken blood vessels on face, because as we get older, our body becomes more prone to damage due to cell regeneration slowing down.
Poor diet and declining health all affect the body’s ability to regenerate itself, and capillaries become weaker in the process.
What is Short Wave Diathermy/Diathermic Coagulation?
Diathermic coagulation is a method to remove unsightly facial thread veins. A very fine needle is used to isolate each vein or capillary, and conducts an electrical current causing the blood in them to clot and the vessel to heal closed. This treatment does not use a laser.
