Telangiectasia, more commonly known as broken red capillaries is caused by a dilation of the capillaries making them appear as small red or purple clusters; some times they can have a spidery like appearance on the skin.

Red capillaries can appear in healthy people and in some cases; it may appear as a symptom of illness. The causes are unknown, but research has discovered that it may be genetic and environmental. We believe the most common cause is exposure to sun or extreme heat or cold.

The first step in prevention is to avoid and always protect your skin from the harsh, Australian sun.
The most common area the broken red capillary clusters will appear is on the lips, nose, around the eyes, cheeks and hands. Some find they cause discomfort and find them unattractive, which is why many choose to have them removed from the visible areas around the face.

Broken red capillaries are not life threatening, in clinic treatment options are available. Face Plus Medispa offer a unique laser treatment, Limelight to target pigment, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and premature aging.

A customised Limelight program is selected for your skin type and skin condition.
When pulses of light are delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching sensation. Cooling gel is applied to cool the skin prior to treatment but an anaesthetic or pain medication is not usually required.
The treated are can appear slightly red and swollen, this is a typical reaction and will last for between and few hours and a day. Make up can applied to cover up the redness.

Patients will begin to see results following one to three treatments. The redness or broken red capillaries will decrease, whilst improving you complexion.

The broken red capillaries will typically not return in the same area but new ones can appear with new sun damage; however they can be treated with Limelight.

Prevention is key, always remember to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimise the results of sun damage. We recommend –
Actinica, Liposomal Sunscreen, SPF 50+: $50
