Even toned and clear facial skin is aesthetically pleasing and looks youthful. Aging, sun exposure, and skin conditions like melasma, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and broken capillaries can create unattractive spots, dark patches or a pink-red bloom on the skin. Our Vancouver laser, skin and medical clinic treats many of these facial discolouration conditions.
Broken capillaries or telangiectasia, sometimes called “spider veins” appear as a pink to red bloom on the skin. Close-up, this bloom is a series of miniscule vein threads very near the skin’s surface. Spider veins can appear nearly anywhere on the body, but when they are on the face, they can be a highly visible and an unattractive source of embarrassment. There are safe non surgical treatments available for broken capillaries, including: IPL (intense pulsed light), and SkinCeuticals ® Redness Neutralizer. More about broken capillaries.
