IPL/laser for redness & broken capillaries

Facial telangiectasia (broken capillaries) commonly develop with sun damage and rosacea. Fortunately they are readily treatable. Well defined large blood vessels on the face, like in the photographs below, can usually be quickly, safely, and comfortably eradicated with 1-2 treatments with vascular laser. There is essentially no downtime, with just minor redness for a day or two, with patients able to return immediately to their normal activities.

Background redness/erythema and tiny blood vessels common in rosacea and sun damage can also be readily improved, with a combination of intense pulse light or vascular laser for the background, and vascular laser for individual larger vessels. There is some redness and swelling on the day of treatment, and usually a few treatments are needed to see good improvement in background redness.
