Addressing Broken Capillaries


Wednesday, 19 October 2016 — Please note: the preferred sunscreen (and minimum daily treatment) for addressing broken capillaries has been revised and is now the Melbourne Dermatology Broken Capillaries Sunscreen SPF 30+.


Broken Capillaries on the Face (Severe)

Dilated/broken capillaries within the skin have a twisted appearance and whiten (blanche) on pressure.


Broken capillaries are addressed as follows:

  • Severe or old broken capillaries — IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Laser Treatment(s); small—spot size Nd:YAG laser using a pulse width of 20 ms or higher is effective in clearing a significant percentage of broken capillaries in a single treatment with minimal side effects.

    A copy of the study into Variable-Pulse Nd:YAG Laser for broken capillaries is available.

  • Prevention of further broken capillaries and reduction in the redness of capillaries — daily topical antioxidant use, daily zinc oxide or parsol based sunscreen use and nightly retinol use (outlined below).

Melbourne Dermatology has compiled a limited number of easy to use solutions for patients with broken capillaries.

These protocols are aimed at:

  • helping prevent and treat existing broken capillaries, and

  • to prepare patients for the best possible outcome of any subsequent laser treatment — minimizing likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and poor clearance of broken capillaries.

The following treatments include a complimentary copy of the study into Variable-Pulse Nd:YAG Laser with which patients contemplating clinical treatment of their broken capillaries should be familiar.


For patients needing to limit the development of further broken capillaries, with normal to dry skin of any age and condition:
