Capillaries are thin venous vascular structures, easily subject to trauma and rupture. They are very frequent and it can be said that almost all women over 25 have at least one area of the body with more or less small caliber capillaries. They can break, which is really annoying. Aesthetic Medicine has a capillary removal treatment available. Read more.
Capillaries appear reddish if they are superficial and bluish if they are deeper. They appear on the skin surface, mainly in the lower limbs and mainly in the thighs and ankles. They can also appear in other areas of the body such as face and arms.
Capillaries are very frequent. It can be said that almost all women over the age of 25 have at least one area of the body with more or less small caliber capillaries.
The causes are several:
- Water retention: the excess fluids accumulated in the capillaries break the walls and transform the capillary itself into a small varice
- Trauma: mechanical injuries, even light ones (energetic massages, waxing ..) which can lead to the formation of telangiectasia
- Hormonal disorders: in women this hormonal variation causes the formation of superficial venous lesions mainly during menstruation and in women who take the pill
- Thermal shocks
How does Aesthetic Medicine work for capillary removal? High intensity pulsed light and laser are also successfully used for the treatment of broken capillaries of the face (such as couperose) and body (such as telangiectasias). Phototherapy is a delicate, painless and risk-free treatment from thermal damage, achievable in one, maximum six, sessions of a few minutes.
