Removing Fine Blood Vessels
Patient X: What can I do about these fine blood vessels on my face?
Fine blood vessels on skin can arise from many different causes where the most common is that of excessive UV light which results in sun damage, inflammation and thinning of the skin.
Sometimes genetics can also play a part and these vessels can be present even in very early stages of life.
These fine blood vessels affect the clear complexion that one can have and serve no additional purpose for the function of the skin.
They are also a marker that can give away our age as they signify cumulative UV damage.
Is there a way for us to remove these fine blood vessels? Permanently?
Broken Blood Vessels on Face Treatment
Treatment with lasers or light devices is the finest, long-term solution to minimize redness and eradicate broken capillaries.
“These treatments use exact light wavelengths which are captured by hemoglobin in the blood vessels in order to shut them up,” the researchers said.
What causes broken blood vessels on the face?
An expanded network of broken blood vessels just below the skin’s surface is the telltale sign of facial broken blood vessels. Spider veins on the face get their common name from their crimson, web-like appearance.
Facial veins typically develop just on the face or limbs, although they can actually show up anyplace on the body. Facial veins are purely cosmetic, causing no other symptoms.
Anyone, at any age, is susceptible to having broken blood vessels on the face; however, some people are more predisposed to this condition than others.
Fractures in facial blood vessels can result from several different factors.
· Sun exposure:
Intense UV rays from the sun can cause the skin’s blood vessels to swell and become more superficial.
· Changes in weather:
The skin on your face may flush because of a disruption in your body’s blood flow brought on by extreme weather conditions. A spider vein develops when a blood vessel ruptures.
· Changes in pressure:
The appearance of tiny ruptured blood vessels is sometimes a symptom of sudden, significant pressure fluctuations. This pressure drop might be caused by a particularly powerful sneeze or by vomiting.
Alterations in hormone levels during pregnancy can also play a role in causing blood vessel ruptures. Having a baby tends to get rid of the spider veins you had during the pregnancy.
· Environmental irritants:
It’s possible that skin damage and the appearance of blood vessels could be caused by exposure to chemicals or environmental toxins.
Blushing and redness of the skin from enlarged veins is a common side effect of this illness. Telangiectasia is common in those who suffer from rosacea.
· Alcohol consumption:
Alcohol has the short-term effect of widening blood arteries. The damaged blood vessels and facial redness associated with alcohol use may linger longer with regular use.
Bruising on the head often indicates a more serious injury: ruptured blood vessels. The bruise and the blood vessels around it usually heal together.
In most cases, a doctor will be able to tell that a patient has damaged blood vessels in the face just by looking at them.
A person with skin problems may need to treat broken capillaries before finding what works for them, despite the availability of many options.
Creams containing retinoids are effective treatments for a variety of skin issues, and your dermatologist may recommend them if you suffer from spider veins.
To some extent, retinoids can improve skin health and lessen the appearance of veins. However, they might cause irritation and dryness when applied to the skin.
Spider veins can be made to vanish quickly with the use of sclerotherapy, an injectable treatment that uses sclerosing chemicals to do this.
By constricting the blood arteries, the injected substance makes the blood invisible just under the skin.
While this treatment may cause temporary pain and discomfort, most people report that these symptoms disappear after a few days.
· Laser therapy:
In laser therapy, troublesome veins are destroyed using laser light. When used improperly, laser therapy can result in skin damage, which may make the area extra delicate as it heals.
Laser therapy is the treatment of choice by Dr Sin Yong, and he uses the R2 Glow Laser.
We are able to generate a lightning effect on the skin with the use of R2 Glow Laser, and if the settings are adjusted correctly, you may also achieve a radiance.
R2 Glow Laser accomplishes this by removing a very small layer of dead cells off the surface of the skin, which reveals the fresh, glowing skin underneath. In addition to that, lasers are also utilized to treat pigmentation and acne at the same time!
Skin boosters work by depositing concentrating nutrients at the regenerative medicine layer of your skin, which has the effect of increasing the skin’s level of moisture.
These nutrients serve as the foundation for the synthesis of new skin and make it possible for the ensuing skin to be both supple and moisturized.
A fast, effective and immediate resolution to these fine blood capillaries can be immediately seen.
Notice how the fine blood capillary just above the laser has disappeared completely after treatment!
Not only does it target fine red vessels, should you have unwanted purplish veins across the face, you may be amenable for a removal using the R2 glow laser as well.
**Dr Sin Yong is a user of multiple different types of lasers to target specific skin conditions, be it pigmentation , red blood vessels, or scars. There is always a best modality of laser that he will select for you.
