Telangiectasia are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes, measuring between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. They can also develop on the legs, specifically on the upper thigh, below the knee joint, and around the ankles.
Acquired telangiectasia, not related to other venous abnormalities, for example on the face and trunk, can be caused by factors such as environmental damage such as that caused by sun or cold exposure.
Trauma to skin such as contusions or surgical incisions.
Radiation exposure such as that experienced during radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer.
Telangiectasia on the face are often treated with a laser. Laser therapy uses a light beam that is pulsed onto the veins in order to seal them off, causing them to dissolve. These light-based treatments require adequate heating of the veins. These treatments can result in the destruction of sweat glands, the risk increases with the number of treatments.
Now with the advent of the SKIN CLASSIC skin care professionals can use this high frequency technology to thermally vaporize these tiny capillaries with minimal impact to the client, usually in one treatment, however in the case of many capillaries the client may require a second treatment no sooner than 30 days (the skin healing cycle).
