how to repair broken capillaries/spider veins
Posted 16 January 2007 - 12:27 PM
i have some broken capillaries/spider veins on my face (around my nose) from doing a lot of hot compresses and taking a lot of really hot showers when i had acne a few years ago.
i want to get rid of them or at least lighten them, but i don't know what the most effective treatment is. i do not have money for laser correction, so i was wondering if anyone knew of any good topical creams or things like that.
at the very least, does anyone know of an effective cover up to use on capillaries? i have sensitive skin and it's hard to find products that do not contain comedogenic ingredients such as mineral oil. right now i am using n.y.c. cover stick, which is oil-free and has beeswax instead of parrafin wax.

I agree with the others though.........from my research the only real thing that can help with broken capilliaries is laser like IPL......I'm wondering though, if the area you wanted treat is just your nose (around your nose) it might not be too expensive. I know most places charge based on the area of skin they are actually laser. It'd be worth looking into maybe.
