Broken capillaries, which are commonly referred to as spider veins due to the way they tend to exist as a network of dark lines on the skin, are a common dermatological problem. Everything from moderate levels of stress to physical injuries can result in these persistent features that seem reluctant to disappear.
The problem is compounded by the way that broken capillaries tend to exist where the skin is thin. This makes surgical treatment more difficult and less effective than other treatments.
IPL photorejuvenation exists as one of the more beneficial ways to solve the problem of spider veins. This treatment can effectively break down the damaged tissue while supporting healthy and vibrant skin cell growth.
Understanding Broken Capillaries
The first step to understanding how IPL photorejuvenation can effectively treat broken capillaries is to understand how they exist. Capillaries break as a result of some form of trauma that causes damage to the tiny blood vessels beneath the skin.
Bruise-like symptoms are often the first sign of broken capillaries. This is because a small amount of blood flows free from the damaged blood vessel.
The body may be able to remove the blood, but repairing the broken capillary may take more time. The body needs to remove the damaged cells while growing new cells, which is what causes broken capillaries to persist for weeks after they appear.
How Can IPL Photorejuvenation Help?
Intense pulse light (IPL) therapy utilizes high energy pulses of light attuned to certain frequencies. These pulses deliver energy that transforms into heat when it hits targeted cells within the body while harmlessly avoiding healthy skin cells.
This heat has two main purposes:
- It destroys damaged cells that the body would need to remove. This quickly sets the stage for proper healing to begin within the body, which diminishes the appearance of broken capillaries.
- It encourages healing within the body. The heat increases the flow of blood, which allows for nutrients to be applied to the body in a way that allows for healing to occur as quickly as possible.
This two-fold effect of IPL photorejuvenation helps to quickly diminish the effects that broken capillaries have upon your body without the need for invasive or cumbersome surgical procedures that can leave lasting undesirable effects upon your skin.
Are You a Candidate for IPL Photorejuvenation?
IPL therapy is ideal for areas where the skin is thin, such as around the eyes or in various places around the face. This helps to avoid areas that could be damaged by surgery while diminishing the undesirable effects that a patient would have to experience. It can also provide quick relief from conditions such as broken capillaries by destroying damaged tissue while encouraging rapid rejuvenation of damaged tissue.
