As we age it is natural for our capillaries and veins to take on a different appearance beneath the skin. They become more visible, especially in the legs. There are many who worry about unattractive spider veins, especially in the legs but also other parts of the body. Broken capillaries are also common particularly in the facial region.
The good news is that with modern technology you can actually minimise these issues safely and effectively. Many of the treatments we offer for broken capillaries and spider veins utilise extremely cutting edge technology. At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics during an initial consultation, we pinpoint the exact solution that will work out the best for you.

Common Reasons for Spider Veins and Broken Capillaries

Capillaries are little vessels that are just below the skin’s surface, which is why they are more noticeable as we age. Our skin gradually becomes thinner, which makes these more pronounced. In actual fact the issue is not that the capillaries are broken, but rather they have become weakened. The reddened appearance is due to the constricted blood flow. Some of the more common reasons for this issue are:

  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Allergies
  • Spicy food consumption
  • Natural part of the ageing process

Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics can provide a superior treatment option, such as photo rejuvenation, and even speciality parameters on our latest lasers that will improve the look and even the feel of your skin as blood flow becomes less constricted.

Photo Rejuvenation

Photo rejuvenation is a therapeutic option that causes very little pain, if any. It is ideal for minimising and potentially eradicating spider veins from the skin with excellent long term results. Depending upon the degree of broken capillaries under the skin, the number of sessions you will require will vary.

Laser Treatment

By using certain settings on our medical grade lasers, we are able to target these skin conditions safely and effectively, and without surgery of course.
