Facial Telangiectasias (Broken Vessels)
Small blood vessels often referred to as "broken capillaries" are common on the face and legs. They usually develop as a consequence of sun exposure but may also occur in conjunction with skin disorders such as rosacea. The tendency to develop them also runs in families and certain ethnic groups. Lasers and intense pulsed light sources are used with great success to eliminate both generalized facial redness, individual blood vessels and angiomas.
