How to Make those Red Threads on your Face or Body Go Away

Astique Clinic | 31 Jan 2014

Broken capillaries are commonly found on the cheeks or nose area and usually appear as small red / pink threads under the skin’s surface. Broken capillaries occur when the capillary walls narrow and widen too quickly, causing the muscles in the walls to tear and allowing the blood to seep out, resulting in broken capillaries.

Patients with vascular disorders may suffer from spider veins, which typically affect the face, neck, chest and lower extremities such as the legs, ankles and feet.

In case you have ever wondered what you can do to make those red threads on your face or body go away, ASTIQUE has the answer.

With Cutera CoolGlide therapy, superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins can be treated safely and effectively, without the need for painful injections.

Cutera CoolGlide is the most effective treatment for unsightly facial and leg veins and broken capillaries. It is a vascular laser system which can treat all sorts of blood vessels that are close to the skin and that cause redness and unevenness. Cutera CoolGlide Vein Therapy delivers pulses of light energy which cause blood within the vein to coagulate, ultimately destroying the vessel, which is then reabsorbed by the body. Blood flow will be redirected to veins deeper within the skin.

This procedure is suitable in treating tiny spider veins in the face, and also the dark blue reticular veins at the thighs and back of legs, which can look unsightly as well as cause pain and discomfort.

However, the procedure is not suitable for larger varicose veins. A topical anaesthetic will be given before the procedure, as the pulses of light from the laser will give a stinging sensation. Each procedure can range from a few minutes for a few spider veins to an hour or more for very extensive blood vessels on the thighs and lower legs.

Results will be observed in 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the number of veins, size and colour of veins to be treated.
