Treatment for Broken Capillaries & Sun Damage

I am interested in treatment for broken capillaries and for sun damage. What are the treatment options? - A

Hi A,

There are a few different possible lasers to treat broken capillaries - if we are trying to treat pigment too (along with the capillaries), then we might want to consider the Intense Pulse Light Device. This (IPL) is great for treating red and brown discoloration. It may improve texture a bit, but not super significantly. There is also the Fraxel Dual laser - this will treat lines, texture, and pigment, but not redness.

Then there is the question of maintenance - which we can discuss when you come in - it will include possible topical medications/creams to apply at home, and maybe ongoing chemical peels every 3 to 4 months.

I would love to see you for a consultation. Please call 206-859-5777. Make sure to mention RealSelf as the $80 consult fee is then waived.

Thank you again.
