ROSACEA & BROKEN CAPILLARIES TREATMENTS
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic condition of the skin common over the face but may appear on the neck, chest, scalp, back, and ears. Symptoms include redness, the presence of capillaries and may become worse if left untreated. Redness may vary with seasonal conditions. There may be associated bumpiness, especially over the nose. Some times there’s strong flushing which may enhance the redness.
Broken capillaries are small, red threads that can surround the cheeks and nose. Capillaries are tiniest kinds of blood vessels in our bodies. Broken capillaries are actually just enlarged blood vessels that extent because of faulty valves or weakness within the vein. These vessel walls can leak, which turns the skin noticeably red. Many people find broken capillaries difficult to hide and unappealing. Broken capillaries are a side effect of Rosacea. Featured Article – Body Beautiful Angels
Signs & Symptoms of Rosacea:
General skin inflammation – Flushing of face and cheeks that usually starts about age 30 and above.
- Scaly skin
- Skin rash
Redness – Flushing, blushing, erythema, edema, stinging and burning normally causes constant redness in the center areas of the face such as the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead.
- Redness can occur on the nose
- Redness on cheeks (not to be mistaken for natural rosy cheeks or psoriasis)
Red Bumps Blemishes, Swelling – Some people who have Rosacea may experience bumps or pustules on their face, often in conjunction with acne. The bumps may be pus-filled Swelling. The skin can feel warm or tender at times.
- Breakouts of bumps and redness (not acne)
Eye Irritation – Some people may develop eye problems linked to Rosacea. These can include redness, dry eyes, swelling, itching, burning, watery and/or irritated eyes. If untreated, this can cause permanent eye damage in a condition that affects vision, known as keratitis. An ophthalmologist can prescribe the correct eye drops or an oral antibiotic to treat these symptoms.
Dry Skin/Oily Skin – Whether your skin is dry or oily, or a combination, make sure you use the correct combination of skin care products to reduce acne/flare-ups as much as possible.
Rough thick skin texture or Enlarged Nose – In some rare cases, Rosacea can cause thick skin on the nose. This will make the nose appear bigger and swollen. There are more men that experience this than a woman. You can use Co2 Lasers to reshape the nose and cut away the thickened skin!
Spider veins or telangiectasias – Broken Capillary or Blood vessels (visible on face)

What Can I Do?
Although there is no cure for Rosacea, you can treat symptoms to reduce flare-ups, which can last several weeks to months. Body Beautiful can help Rosacea and broken capillaries using a combination therapy modality (ND Yag, IPL Fotofacial, and Diode Lasers) for both soft tissue conditioning and visible capillary proliferation. By reducing the capillaries and redness with lasers, we are reducing swelling contributing to Rosacea flare-ups. Laser therapy, when used in combination with Levulinic acid, will also reduce acne by shrinking oil glands and forcing oil out of the skin. Product corrections have significantly reduced symptoms and visible signs of Rosacea in patients. Several treatments may be necessary for some patients for chronic symptoms.
Treats Multiple Conditions- Photofacial using a combination process approach to treat each specific issue through IPL, 1064 ND Yag and Diode Laser pulses:
Acne – Skin condition in which the hair follicles and oil glands clog up
Broken Capillaries – Swollen blood vessels
Sun Damage – Wide areas of pigmentation on the face, chest, arms, and legs
Sun Spots – Individual pigmented lesions, also known as age spots
Spider Veins – Individual vessels, which can be red, blue or purple in color
Rosacea – General inflammation of the cheeks and face
Laser Therapy – Laser treatments work well in treating Rosacea symptoms. The Laser uses different wavelengths of light that target the red blood vessels, redness, and acne-causing them to disintegrate and the body removes them. This reduces swelling to the area treating the symptoms of rosacea which helps minimize flare-ups.
After your treatments, we will provide a recommended daily skin routine to improve skin elasticity and to prevent Rosacea and broken capillaries. All Pittsburgh Body Beautiful locations offer high-grade skincare products from SkinMedica. Many have success applying topical Vitamin C Cream or Serum in the morning, Redness Relief Complex, combined with sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher). At night, we suggest using Retinol. Per each patient, we will alter these suggestions to match your individual skin condition. It’s important to invest in your skin and take the necessary steps to maximize your results.
