In this post, we will discuss what an IPL photofacial is and how it can help get rid of those pesky broken capillaries. Keep reading to learn more!

What Causes Broken Capillaries?

Before we discuss how an IPL photofacial can help, it is important to understand what causes broken capillaries in the first place. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to this problem, including:

– Genetics: If you have a family history of broken capillaries, you may be more likely to develop them yourself.
– Exposure to the sun: UV rays can damage the skin and cause broken capillaries.
Rosacea: This chronic skin condition can also lead to broken capillaries.
– Aging: As we age, our skin becomes thinner and more fragile, making it more susceptible to damage.

How an IPL Photofacial Can Help?

Now that we know what causes broken capillaries, let’s discuss how an IPL photofacial can help. An IPL photofacial is a type of laser treatment that uses intense pulsed light to target and destroy damaged blood vessels. This can help reduce the appearance of broken capillaries and give your skin a more even, youthful appearance.

How Does It Work?

During an IPL photofacial, pulses of light are directed at the skin. These pulses of light work to break up the blood vessels that are causing the appearance of broken capillaries. In addition to getting rid of broken capillaries, this treatment can also help improve the overall appearance of the skin by reducing redness, evening out skin tone, and improving texture.

Are There Any Side Effects?

One of the great things about an IPL photofacial is that there are very few side effects associated with this treatment. Some people may experience mild redness or swelling following their treatment, but this typically goes away within a few hours.


If you are struggling with broken capillaries, an IPL photofacial may be the perfect solution for you. This treatment is safe, effective, and can provide you with long-lasting results.
