Small broken blood vessels on the face typically appear around the nose. Sun damage is thought to be the likely culprit in why they form. Once they form, they will not resolve on their own unless treated with lasers.
Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial redness and swelling around the nose, mouth, chin, and forehead. Specific triggers of the condition include sun exposure, alcohol, extreme heat or cold, and spicy foods. The broken blood vessels and general facial redness in rosacea can be treated with lasers.
Using the pulsed dye Vbeam PerfectaTM laser we have more versatility in treating any and all vascular conditions such as rosacea, broken blood vessels, angiomas, port wines stains, diffuse redness, and even warts, some scars and early stretch marks! Depending on your lifestyle the treatment can be tailored so that there is minimal purpura (bruising) and therefore downtime involved.
