Dilated Blood Vessels and Rosacea
We offer effective treatments for dilated blood vessels, rosacea, port wine stain, and telaniectasia at our office in Nashua, New Hampshire.
What causes dilated blood vessels?
Several conditions can cause small red or blue blood vessels on the face and neck. Sun exposure over many years, rosacea, and certain birthmarks are common.
What area of the body can be treated?
Although the face and neck are the most common sites, any area of the body can be treated.
How is the procedure performed?
Blood vessels are treated using the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system. A cool gel is applied to the skin, and a glass handpiece is applied to the skin. Light pulses are then applied to the skin, which makes the blood vessels disappear.
How many treatments are needed?
It depends on the size, shape, and number of vessels. Some only require one treatment, while others will require more.
I have Rosacea. Can I be treated?
Many patients with rosacea suffer from small dilated blood vessels, which contribute to the red appearance of the skin. They are also partly responsible for the flushing that occurs in rosacea. IPL treatments can be very effective for the dilated blood vessels and diffuse redness that is so common in rosacea.
