What Are Broken Capillaries?
Broken capillaries are tiny dilated blood vessels (telangiectasia) that are visible through the skin. They become more common as we age and our skin loses its elasticity. The factors that can promote their formation are:
• Excess exposure to the sun
• Drastic change in temperature
• Alcoholic beverages
• Hot and spicy foods
Once they form, broken capillaries will not disappear on their own. They can be permanently removed by the Vasculyse (or Laser treatment).
Treated capillaries or skin tags will not return although new ones may appear somewhere else.
The Vasculyse uses a mild current to induce coagulation within the distended capillary. The body then absorbs the unused capillary, known as Capillary Coalysis.
For lesions like skin tags and sebaceous keratosis the machine uses a radio frequency to cauterize the lesion in question. Because of the very fine needle used to treat these lesions, the main benefit is that only the affected area is treated, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. (Other options your physician could use to treat these same lesions are: liquid nitrogen, and surgically removing the lesions.)
This non-invasive procedure is virtually painless, depending on the area of treatment. It uses mild currents that have been employed in the aesthetic world for more than four decades. Patients do feel a heat sensation and the larger the lesion the warmer it feels. For those concerned about pain a topical anesthetic and ice can be applied, in rare cases local anesthetic is used to ensure client comfort.
Sessions take 15, 30 or 60minutes. Most conditions are effectively treated in between one and three sessions. The results are truly amazing.
