Broken capillaries & vessels are small superficial red, purple or blue veins that can occur on the legs or in fact anywhere on the body.
The causes of leg vessels include genetics, age, lifestyle, hormones, pregnancy and weight gain. Although they are quite common, they can cause some distress and embarrassment for those who have them.
For leg vessels we will utilise a wavelength called Nd: YAG, this longer wavelength allows the laser energy to penetrate deeper in order to clear the broken vessels. The laser light can destroy the vein without damaging the skin.
