Broken capillaries are commonly found on the cheeks, nose or legs, these appear as small red / pink threads under the skins surface. Broken capillaries occur when the capillary walls narrow and widen too quickly causing the muscles in the walls to tear. This in turn allows the blood to seep out resulting in broken capillaries.
The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser is able to easily seal off the broken capillaries as it is just situated under the surface of the skin, the treatment leaves light scabbing behind that falls away within 2-3- days. The treatment is virtually painless with minimal scarring.
