Improving the appearance of broken capillaries with light therapy
Broken capillaries are tiny blood vessels that have burst under the skin and are especially noticeable in the nose area or other regions of the face. The red veins take on the shape of spiderwebs, which is why they are also called ‘spider veins’.
Broken capillaries may be caused by:
- Sun damage.
- Liver damage.
- Skin trauma.
- Weather conditions.
The red and infrared light therapy used in the Photizo Blush has been shown to help with improving the overall look and feel of broken capillaries, creating a smoother and more youthful appearance.
How will light therapy help to improve the appearance of broken capillaries?
- Increases circulation and the formation of new capillaries. This brings an immediate healthy glow to the skin, as new capillaries mean more oxygen and nutrients to each skin cell.
- Increases lymph system activity. This reduces swelling and puffiness, as the lymph system is actually made more efficient over time, resulting in healthier skin overall.
- Stimulates the production of collagen and fibroblasts. Collagen is what is responsible for the elasticity, firmness, and fullness of your skin. The increased production of collagen and fibroblasts is what smooths the texture of the skin.
- Causes the release of ATP, or raw cellular energy. This provides energy to the cells to make the most of the additional blood, oxygen, nutrients, detoxification, growth, and repair.
