Broken blood vessels treatment with focus on home remedies
Broken blood vessels are also known as thread or spider veins, as well as telangiectasias. They occur because of weakened capillaries and lost elasticity. When capillaries dilate, it is not possible for them to return to the size they were before. What happens instead is that they turn the skin red after collapsing. Our skin becomes thinner with age and that makes the capillaries that are broken more noticeable. Spider veins can also be caused by the consumption of caffeine or alcohol, facial scrubs or certain cosmetics, and extreme cold or hot weather conditions. Fortunately there are various kinds of broken blood vessels treatment, and this is what we’ll discuss next.
There are two medical ways of broken blood vessels treatment, and they are sclerotherapy and laser treatment. Sclerotherapy is generally a simple procedure and it is done at the doctor’s office. It involves having a sclerosing solution injected into the veins, which makes them shrink. The broken blood vessels will dissolve after a few weeks, and they will be naturally absorbed into the body. Laser treatment is a rather different procedure. It involves having a specialized instrument light focused into the spider vein area. What removes the broken blood vessels is the power of the concentrated light, and then they become absorbed in the blood stream. The laser repair process is a gradual one, and while a small cluster of thread veins may need only one treatment, a bigger one might need a number of sessions.
If you don’t want to involve the doctors and the medical system, there are ways for you to use home remedies for broken blood vessel treatment. Here are some treatments you can perform yourself:
1 – Essential Oil Treatment. Use 100 percent pure essential rose or chamomile oil. Mix 10 drops of it into 4 ounces of moisturizer. Then apply it to the affected area 2-3 times daily.
2 – Vitamin C and K treatment. Try to look for different moisturizers – one that is rich in Vitamin K and another one that is rich in Vitamin C. Apply the Vitamin C cream to the affected area before bed and let it absorb for a few minutes. Then apply the Vitamin K cream to the affected area and leave it on overnight.
3 – Concealer. Using a green make up stick will assist in concealing the broken capillary redness. You can try wearing it under the foundation you wear.
These broken blood vessel treatments will not work overnight, but it is cheaper to use them than visit a dermatologist and do the treatments mentioned earlier. Remember that it could take up to several months to notice a difference in the appearance of the capillaries and to see them shrink. Also, it would be helpful to avoid facial steaming, saunas, caffeine, alcohol, and spicy foods. Don’t forget to protect your face when the weather conditions are harsh.
