Broken Blood Vessels

Over time, visible blood vessels may appear on the skin, particularly around the nose, cheeks, and chin.  Sun exposure and smoking increases the likelihood and the number of these lesions, and people with rosacea have many more of these visible vessels.  The best treatment for these “broken blood vessels” is with laser.  Laser treatment removes these vessels in 1-3 treatments, depending on the number and severity.  However, the laser treatment does not stop the causes of these visible vessels (aging, sun, smoking, etc).  Over time your body will continue to develop new ones, eventually requiring additional laser treatments.
