Brocken capillaries

Damaged capillaries are, deformation or disruption of the integrity of the smallest subcutaneous blood vessels. A condition in which capillaries become brittle, fragile and bleed, causing small subcutaneous hemorrhages with the formation of vascular asterisks and other cosmetic blemishes. These skin changes are usually purple or red and are visible on various parts of the body, especially the face and legs.

These visible subcutaneous vessels are often the cause of discomfort and complexes. We offer advanced methods and technologies to effectively eliminate the problem and restore the body to health and beauty. It is the treatment of burst capillaries in Chicago that is our specialty. We have equipped our center with the latest advances in the medical industry to provide patients with the best possible results.

Causes of spider veins

The appearance of vascular asterisks is caused by a number of external and internal factors:

  • genetic predisposition;
  • hemorrhagic diseases;
  • increased capillary pressure;
  • imbalance of hormones (e.g., in pregnancy);
  • heavy exposure to UV rays;
  • injuries or bruises that contribute to the formation of vascular networks;
  • prolonged use of poor quality cosmetics;
  • passive lifestyle.

Burst capillaries on the nose can also be the result of one of these factors. Regardless of the cause, our team of specialists is ready to provide effective solutions to eliminate this problem and restore skin health.


Treatment for Broken Capillaries

The removal of burst capillaries is based on the principle of selective photo hemolysis. It uses a laser beam of a certain wavelength, which is absorbed by hemoglobin inside the damaged vessels. The absorbed energy is converted into heat, causing the coagulation of proteins in vascular walls, their blockage, and subsequent destruction.

The selectivity of the procedure is due to the fact that hemoglobin in the blood strongly absorbs laser radiation of a certain wavelength, while the surrounding tissues practically do not absorb this type of radiation. This allows the energy to be directed precisely at the damaged vessels, minimizing the risk of damage to surrounding skin or tissue.

When the laser is applied to the damaged vessels, it closes them, resulting in the cessation of blood flow through them and their subsequent destruction. The body then naturally excretes the remnants of the destroyed vessels.

This method allows you to effectively and safely eliminate burst vessels on the skin without surgery and with minimal risk of negative side effects. Laser removal of burst capillaries on the face is one of the most popular treatments for burst capillaries.


Who is indicated for laser treatment?

Laser therapy is indicated for people who have the following problems:

  • burst capillaries on any parts of the body;
  • photoaging;
  • consequences of trauma or surgery;
  • varicose veins.

Removal of burst capillaries by laser is an effective and safe method of treatment that allows you to get rid of these problems. The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis and does not require hospitalization, but it is necessary to properly prepare for it.

  • Do not tan a week before and after the procedure;
  • not take blood thinners for a week before the procedure;
  • inform the doctor about the presence of comorbidities;
  • on the day of the procedure, do not apply cosmetics to the skin.

Compliance with the recommendations guarantees a positive result.



Treatment results are visible immediately after the procedure. However, sometimes it may take several treatments before the vessels are completely scleroses and the desired result is achieved.

In rare cases, complications may occur in the form of:

  • bleeding;
  • skin burns;
  • hyperemia;
  • spots on the skin.

 In most cases, these complications resolve on their own within a few days.



Recommendations and methods of prevention of vascular asterisks and various skin blemishes:

  • avoid prolonged exposure to the sun;
  • daily, even in cloudy weather, use sunscreen with SPF 30 and above;
  • do not abuse bad habits (smoking, alcohol);
  • control your weight;
  • exercise regularly;
  • wear comfortable shoes;
  • if you are taking any medications, consult your doctor to see if they cause dilation of the blood vessels.

 These fairly simple restrictions will help keep your skin beautiful and healthy.
