If my face shows reddish veins, you are more than likely suffering from couperose or rosacea. A proven, however, temporary way to hide the problem is to disguise it under a layer of foundation. However, using cosmetic medicine, there are ways that you can permanently get rid of scars and veins.
Why do I suffer from couperose or rasacea?
The reddish mesh that penetrates through the skin are dilated vessels. They become such when their walls weaken. For example, during strong emotional or physical stress, as well as when heated – in the sun or in a bath – the capillaries are overfilled. In such cases, the way in which this is described is that “the blood flows to the face.” However, even after the stress has diminished, or you are no longer feeling heat, the skin does not always return to normal, and some of the capillaries remain enlarged. Most often, this happens to people prone to allergies and other skin irritations. Skin redness occurs in those who are indiscriminate in their choice of food, eat too much, abuse alcohol and smoke. Weak blood vessels can also be a genetic inheritance, in fact, if you have had thin, sensitive skin since childhood, you may develop couperose or rosacea with age.
How to treat couperose or rosacea
Until recently, the most popular treatment for treating couperose and rosacea has been electrocoagulation. However, this is a rather ineffective procedure with a long recovery period. Today there are new methods, including laser or IPL. It works in this way: the Doctor directs the light spot on the vessel and processes each point with a short laser pulse, the walls of the vessels stick together and go deep under the skin. In this case, the beam does not damage the healthy tissue, and the effect is noticeable immediately after the procedure.
The good news is that in most cases, just a few procedures are sufficient to get rid of couperose or rosacea. The treatment is painless and does not require rehabilitation. Different laser systems are able to solve other problems simultaneously, for example, to smooth out the skin tone, to remove stains after acne and pigmentation.
Maintain your success
After the laser treatment, you can make procedures that will help to consolidate and maintain the result, make the skin tone smooth, and the structure dense and elastic. Mesotherapy will help with this problem. Cocktails are especially useful, including ingredients that improve the microcirculation of the vascular bed, because they increase the elasticity of the vascular walls, prevent stagnation. Often, they include vitamin C, ginkgo biloba extract, and meliloto extract.
Can you prevent the occurrence of couperose or rosacea?
Treatment of vascular asterisks depends on the stage of the disease. If the problem has arisen recently, preventive measures may help you cope. For example, try D’arsonval and Cryotherapy – these procedures are performed by an anesthetician or cosmetologist.
