How do doctors treat a broken blood vessel?

How do doctors treat a broken blood vessel?

Usually nothing: This depends on the cause of the "broken blood vessel". Loss of supporting tissue associated with "maturity", medications like Aspirin or non-steroidals, varicosities or local trauma are common causes. The "problem" is usually more cosmetic rather than clinical unless there's blood where it shouldn't be; the body usually takes care of this gradual absorption of the blood like a healing bruise.
