Treatment Information

How does IPL treat broken capillaries and redness?

The face has an extreme network of veins and tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Over time ageing, trauma, sun exposure and certain lifestyle factors cause a number of them to break, appearing as red streaks or blotches on the face. The IPL works by heating the broken capillaries and vascular lesions to the point of destruction. As blood can no longer circulate it ceases to colour the capillaries. After the treatment the broken capillaries are re-absorbed by the body within a few days. There is no damage to the surrounding tissue and after 2-4 treatments, depending on the severity of the condition, you can expect virtually all traces of veins to be removed. For any stubborn veins it is best to do the treatments one or two weeks apart as the vein walls weaken with each treatment. You may feel a little sun burnt immediately after your treatment and have mild redness for a couple of hours.
