Broken Blood Vessels on Face
Rosacea, broken blood vessels, and cherry angiomas are just some of the vascular disorders of the skin we treat at Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology.
Although rosacea can affect anyone, it is most common in middle-aged women with light skin. While there is no definitive cure for rosacea, the right treatment can control and reduce the signs and symptoms, which include:
- Persistent redness in the central part of the face, manifest in small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks that often swell and become more visible.
- Swollen, red bumps that resemble acne. Sometimes, these bumps contain pus, and your skin may feel hot and tender.
- Dry, red, swollen, and irritated eyes and eyelids. This is referred to as ocular rosacea and can precede skin symptoms.
- Enlarged, bulbous nose.This symptom occurs more often in men than women but is nonetheless unflattering.
Treatment Options for Facial Redness and Veins
Our Excel V laser by Cutera is a non-invasive laser therapy that targets the red color of the blood vessels, leaving normal skin intact. This results in a quick, comfortable procedure with minimal downtime.
Vascular conditions may require a series of treatments to achieve maximum results, but dramatic improvement is usually seen with each treatment.
