A 18-year-old female asked:
Are there any home remedies for broken capillaries on the face? would massage/circulation help? thanks

Sun protection: Sun protection will actually help those broken blood vessels from filling up, but won't erase them. Pulsed dye laser is the best treatment of facial capillaries because it targets the blood vessels. The treatment is not painful, has little downtime and is done in the office. This should be combined with sun protection. In my opinion, the syneron/candela v-beam perfecta laser is the best pdl.
