Bid Farewell to the Broken Capillaries Crawling on Your Face

Astique Clinic | 10 May 2016

They look like little spider webs branching out on our skin. Broken capillaries are commonly found on our nose, mouth, cheeks, and even on our hands and legs. While it may not be of concern to most of us who have that little bit of them, those who have a lot of broken capillaries on their face may find them unsightly.

What cause broken capillaries?

  1. Scrubbing our face too hard
  2. Rinsing our face with very excessively hot water
  3. Excessive sun exposure
  4. Pregnancy and childbirth
  5. Alcoholism

Because our capillaries are so thin, it is very easy to break them. When capillaries are broken or repeatedly dilated due to the above reasons, they appear on our skin surface as the little red branches.


Besides concealing them with a concealer, laser is the only way to treat broken capillaries. Yellow light from Dual Yellow Laser can shrink the capillaries instantly and the cosmetic results are immediate. Yellow light is readily absorbed by blood to shrink the vessel, and the doctor can do this with minimal or no pain.

The severity and spread of the broken capillaries will determine how many sessions you need and it is best to consult a doctor for an exact treatment plan.
