What is the procedure for Broken Capillary Treatment?

Broken capillaries are improved through the use of a low-output electrocautery or a vascular laser. The laser energy is selectively aimed at the targeted vein. The energy is then absorbed by the blood vessel causing it to close down and shrink. Since blood is no longer transported by the closed blood vessel, it is reabsorbed by the body, eliminating the redness it caused. Treatment sessions usually last 30 minutes or less.

Sclerotherapy can also be used for broken capillary treatment. This entails a sclerosing solution being injected into the veins, causing them to close and then be absorbed into the body.
