BROKEN BLOOD VESSELS
Laser treatment for minimizing the appearance of Broken Blood Vessels

Broken Blood Vessels occur most frequently on the face, legs and eyes. The burst of red capillaries cause red, purple or bluish marks often making people self-conscious - particularly when they appear on the face. Laser treatment is especially effective for minimizing or eliminating the appearance of Broken Blood Vessels.

WHAT TYPES OF LASERS ARE USED?
The Vbeam® Perfect laser, the Intense Pulsed Light laser and the Gentle YAG laser are utilized to treat various conditions including Broken Blood Vessels. Multiple treatments may be necessary, although some lesions may be completely removed with just one treatment. Your physician or certified nurse practitioner may choose to use just one laser, or a combination of lasers for the most effective treatment.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Any healthy individual with no serious medical conditions may be a good candidate.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
While a Mini-Face Lift cannot stop the normal aging process, it can "turn back the clock." Avoiding excessive sun exposure and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help increase the longevity of your results. Results may last 5-10 years, depending on how well you take care of your skin.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
Your skin is first numbed with a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort, and your eyes are protected with special goggles. The laser treatment may feel like the snap of a rubber band.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The number of treatments needed depends on the condition being treated. Some Broken Blood Vessels can be completely removed with just one treatment while others may require a series of treatments.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Temporary redness and mild swelling, which usually resolves in 1 to 2 days, may occur immediately after treatment.
