Dilated Blood Vessels

Dilated Blood Vessels

Dilated blood vessels are often referred to as ‘broken’ blood vessels. The vessels are not ‘broken’ but are dilated so they appear more prominently on the surface of the skin. Dilated blood vessels are caused by sun damage, trauma, medications, estrogen, surgery, pregnancy, autoimmune diseases, liver disease and rosacea. They often appear on the face and legs.


Dilated blood vessels are not life-threatening, but they often make people self-conscious, especially if they appear on the face. Laser treatment is the most effective treatment for broken blood vessels with very few side effects. The light from the laser is absorbed by the blood that destroys the vessel. The vessel will disappear restoring the skin to its natural appearance. Larger vessels may require multiple treatments while smaller vessels may only need a single treatment.


If you are considering treatment call and schedule an appointment with Dr. McKay. She uses the world's best vascular lazer to treat dilated blood vessels and she can help you with your individual needs.
