Understanding Broken Capillaries

Capillaries are tiny blood vessels connected to veins and arteries in the body that are responsible for blood circulation in the face. When a capillary is broken or dilated, it has ruptured beneath the surface of the skin and therefore becomes visible to the naked eye.

The causes of broken capillaries are varied, encompassing both environmental factors and lifestyle habits. Key triggers include:

  • Hot Showers: Extreme temperatures can cause capillaries to break.
  • Environmental and Weather Changes: Fluctuations can weaken capillary walls.
  • Excessive Force: Actions like sneezing or coughing can cause pressure bursts.
  • Skin Trauma: Injuries can lead to capillary damage.
  • Diet: Spicy foods and alcohol increase blood flow, potentially leading to breaks.
  • Exercise: Intense physical activity can pressure capillaries.
  • UV Exposure: Sun damage weakens and damages the skin and its vessels.

How can we treat broken capillaries using IPL?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy stands out as a highly effective and safe non-surgical option for eliminating broken capillaries. This advanced treatment utilises precise wavelengths of light that specifically target haemoglobin within the blood vessels.

As the IPL energy penetrates the affected vessels, it prompts the body to naturally absorb and eliminate the damaged cells. Given the variability in the severity and resilience of broken capillaries, a series of treatments may be required to achieve optimal results. This innovative approach ensures minimal discomfort and downtime, making it an ideal solution for those seeking clear and even-toned skin.

Pre + Post Treatment Care

During your IPL treatment for broken capillary removal, you’ll experience a mild sensation of heat as the device targets the affected vessels. The procedure is quick and generally pain-free, with each session lasting only a few minutes. The technology is designed to ensure patient comfort while effectively treating the visible capillaries.

1-3 treatments are recommended every 4 weeks, however this can vary person to person. Maintenance treatments may also be required. This depends on the skin integrity and how the patient looks after their skin post treatment to maintain results. Minimising triggers will enhance the longevity of results and reduce reoccurrence. 

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of the sun and refrain from using tanning beds for at least two weeks before your treatment to prevent skin sensitisation.
  • Skip Certain Skincare Products: Discontinue the use of skincare products containing retinol or other potentially irritating ingredients a few days prior to your session.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your treatment to keep your skin well-hydrated.
  • Sun Protection: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and avoid direct sun exposure to the treated area for at least two weeks post-treatment to protect the skin and prolong the results.
  • Gentle Skincare: Use mild, soothing skincare products to avoid irritation as your skin heals.
  • Avoid Heat: Stay away from hot showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours after treatment to prevent unnecessary stress on the treated area.
