Broken Capillaries Treatment

Broken Capillaries Treatment


Why Broken Capillaries Can Be Cosmetically Concerning

Broken capillaries can detract from the overall appearance of the skin, making it look uneven and flushed. On the face, they are particularly noticeable and can be difficult to cover with makeup. Factors such as sun exposure, aging, genetics, hormonal changes, and certain medical conditions can contribute to the development of broken capillaries. While they are generally harmless, their presence can affect self-esteem and confidence, making effective treatment an important cosmetic concern.

Treatment Options at Cupid Lips

Cupid Lips offers a range of non-invasive treatments designed to target and reduce the appearance of broken capillaries. Our state-of-the-art clinic is equipped with the latest laser and light therapy technologies, ensuring that you receive the most effective and safe treatments available. Here are the primary options we provide:

VBeam® Laser

The VBeam® laser is a pulsed dye laser that specifically targets the hemoglobin in blood vessels. This treatment is highly effective for reducing the appearance of broken capillaries. The laser emits a burst of light that is absorbed by the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and eventually be reabsorbed by the body. This process significantly diminishes the visibility of the capillaries without damaging the surrounding skin.

Clear + Brilliant® Laser

The Clear + Brilliant® laser uses fractional laser technology to improve skin texture and tone. It can be particularly effective for treating mild to moderate broken capillaries. The laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting the regeneration of healthy skin cells. This helps to reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and improve the overall clarity of the skin.

Palomar Icon™ Laser

The Palomar Icon™ laser combines intense pulsed light (IPL) with fractional laser technology to treat a variety of skin concerns, including broken capillaries. The IPL component targets the blood vessels, while the fractional laser stimulates collagen production and skin renewal. This dual approach ensures comprehensive treatment, reducing redness and visible capillaries.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing is a more intensive treatment option that uses concentrated light energy to vaporize the top layer of skin. This method not only removes damaged skin cells but also stimulates collagen production. While typically used for more severe skin issues, CO2 laser resurfacing can effectively reduce the appearance of broken capillaries, especially when combined with other treatments.


While broken capillaries can persist without treatment, they can be effectively diminished or removed with the right therapies. Laser and light treatments at Cupid Lips offer long-lasting results.

Most laser treatments for broken capillaries involve minimal discomfort. Patients may experience a slight stinging sensation during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated. Topical anesthetics can be used to enhance comfort.

The number of sessions required depends on the severity and extent of the broken capillaries. Most patients see significant improvement after one to three sessions, with each session spaced a few weeks apart.

Downtime varies depending on the treatment method. Most laser treatments involve minimal downtime, with some redness and swelling that typically subsides within a few days. CO2 laser resurfacing may require a longer recovery period.
