Causes of Broken Capillaries


Tuesday, 3 September 2013 — Please note: the preferred sunscreen (and minimum daily treatment) for 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 that have a twisted appearance and that whiten (blanche) on pressure.

Primary causes of broken capillaries:

  • increasing age;
  • rosacea;
  • hereditary;
  • hormonal fluctuations (puberty, pregnancy, menopause);
  • pregnancy (increase in the amount of blood in the body, causing vein enlargement);
  • obesity;
  • leg injury — including prolonged standing;
  • fluctuations in temperature;
  • UVA sun damage.

Recommended Treatments for Broken Capillaries — :

Face

  1. A Serum used in Broken Capillary Treatment or Gernetic Veinulo Special Broken Capillary Treatment and Vasco Cream.
  2. Daily use of a True Broad Spectrum Sunscreen used in Broken Capillary Treatment.
  3. Retinol.
  4. Jan Marini TGF Products with Vascular Epithelial Growth Factor (VEGF).
  5. Avoidance of harsh facial scrubs, such as those containing ground walnut or apricot seeds.

Legs

Broken Capillaries on the Legs

There is currently only one topical protocol worth following:

  1. Gernetic Lympho Varicose Veins Treatment Preparing Lotion and Gernetic Vasco/Artera Varicose Veins Treatment and Prevention Cream. Use Gernetic Veinulo Special Varicose Veins Treatment Spray in a course of 1-2 boxes a few times a year (apply after Lympho Preparing Lotion, before Vasco/Artera). Follow the protocol twice daily (AM and PM) for 4 months, then 1-3 times a week as maintenance.
  2. Compression Stockings.

Note: Lympho Varicose Veins Treatment Preparing Lotion has a liquid texture and may be applied over stockings at any time for immediate relief.
