Prevention and Treatment Options for Broken Blood Vessels

The best way to prevent broken blood vessels is proper skin care and adequate protection from the sun. Be sure to limit your daily sun exposure and use sunscreens that offer broad spectrum protection against harmful UV rays.

For more severe cases of broken blood vessels treatment options are available. The gold standard therapy are lasers that target blood vessels, pulsed dye laser or TTP lasers. Electrosurgery which is burning them with a fine metal tip is very effective for removing small individual vessels and it’s not particularly painful. Appropriate facial cosmetics can also hide the problem.
