• Broken Capillaries IPL Photofacial

    Capillaries are thread-like blood vessels that burst under the skin caused by long sun exposure or aging. They appear on any part of the body, but they are the most visible and prominent on the face. Broken capillaries can be fixed through an IPL photofacial.

    Before & After


    • Broken capillaries are tiny red thread-like blemishes, often in clusters.
    • They are dilated or enlarged blood vessels, which are otherwise hard to see, visible just beneath the surface of the skin.
    • They vary in size, shape, and number.
    • They are harmless but cosmetically unpleasant.

    Commonly located on face and legs but are most visible on the surface of the skin around:

    • The nose 
    • The cheeks 
    • The chin
    • Some causes of broken capillaries include:
    1. Environment 
    2. Genetics 
    3. Hormones, 
    4. Trauma (to the skin) 
    5. Medical conditions
    6. Aging
    7. Excessive consumption of acidic food
    8. Excessively hot showers/baths 
    9. Sun damage

    • At 3D Lifestyle, we treat Broken Capillaries with Q-switched Nd:YAG Laser which is the best and most efficient way to get rid of tiny blood vessels. In some cases, treatment with IPL and Dermalux-Photo LED is also recommended to decrease redness.
    • 3D Lifestyle certified aesthetic consultant might also recommend some topical creams, serums, and medical-grade sunblock for optimal long term results. 
    • With treatments at 3D Lifestyle, you should, in most cases, start seeing results after the first treatment.
    • The number of sessions would be determined on consultation, considering the skin condition and the treatment option.
