“What Causes Broken Veins On My Face?”

Sunday, April 10, 2016 - 8:38pm

Clients often ask me how they got red spots on their face, or tiny little broken veins. The answer is simple, over exposure to the sun.

Good Old Mr. Sun is very strong. And, if you aren’t careful, he has no qualms about leaving behind evidence of just how great and powerful he is! (Move over Wizard of Oz!)

Those tiny little veins around your nose, on your forehead, cheeks, eyelids, neck and upper chest are vulnerable to the sun’s rays. Too much of it and it weakens the elastic fibers in the walls, and they collapse.

That’s why you see tiny little red lines or dots with jagged lines that seem to spider out across your chin, nose, and cheeks. But there’s no need to moan about the follies of youth. I’ve got powerful mojo of our own!

Intense Pulse Light, or IPL, gets rid of spider veins, broken capillaries, red spots, flushing, and the evidence of rosacea. Extremely safe and highly effective, it is non-invasive and can be performed on your lunch hour.

IPL is also excellent for age spots, liver spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and facial sagging. There’s no need for a stare down with the follies of your youth. Get rid of the evidence.

Your secret is safe with me! (And you’ll look younger, too!)
