However, you can reverse these less common signs of aging with Cutera Coolglide laser technology, to help you achieve a more youthful appearance. Cutera Coolgide laser technology reduces facial redness and vascular conditions including rosacea, spider veins, telangiectasia, and blood vessels.
The light pulses encourage the immune system to reduce excessive facial redness and veins by disrupting blood flow to the problem areas.
Treatments are safe for most skin types and can be used to improve skin imperfections on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.
Broken capillaries are tiny, dilated blood vessels, which are visible on the surface of the skin and are usually red or purple in appearance. The term is most often used when referring to small broken veins on the face, specifically around the nose and on the cheeks. They are often referred to as spider veins.
Broken capillaries can appear for no reason at all, although there are certain factors that are linked to them. Genetics are thought to play a part as well as hormonal changes in the body, such as during pregnancy, and the ageing process. Alcohol is also attributed with the formation of broken capillaries, particularly on the cheeks or around the nose, known as “drinkers nose”. Other factors include trauma to the skin, sun burn and medical conditions like rosacea.
Broken veins are small, dilated blood vessels, which are visable on the surface of the skin and are usually red or purple in appearance. They are also known as thread veins, spider veins, broken capillaries and telangiectasia. They are most commonly found on the legs and on the face, specifically around the nose and on the cheeks. They are harmless, but when they present on the legs can sometimes be an indication of underlying varicose veins.

Standing and sitting for long periods of time can also increase the likelihood of getting broken veins.
Cherry Angiomas are small, red skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body. Their red appearance that gives them their name is due to broken blood vessels within the growth. They are also known as Senile Angiomas, Campbell de Morgan spots or “red freckles”. Cherry Angiomas are completely harmless but you may wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.
The exact cause of Cherry Angiomas is unclear although, like many skin conditions, they appear to have a link with ageing. They have also been associated with pregnancy and exposure to chemicals.
The word “hemangioma” literally means “blood vessel tumour” although they are completely benign. Hemangiomas are most commonly found in newborn babies and can grow rapidly during the first year of the baby’s development. They will often then diminish on their own and in most cases are gone by the age of five to ten (although they can remain until puberty). Hemangiomas are usually red or pink in colour as they are made up of abnormal blood vessels. Other names for them include infantile hemangioma, strawberry angioma, salmon patch, capillary hemangioma, venous hemangioma (cavernous hemangioma), arterial hemangioma (plexiform hemangioma).
Like many benign skin tumours, the exact cause of hemangiomas is unknown. Scientists have hypothesised that the female hormone oestrogen may play a role in their formation.
