Though harmless, the spidery webs across your skin can be prevented and treated. With some healthy lifestyle choices and professional skin treatments, you can achieve a blemish-free complexion once again.

What are Capillaries?

Capillaries are small, delicate blood vessels that serve a very important purpose. By connecting arteries and veins, capillaries facilitate the exchange of oxygen, nutrients, and waste products between the blood and surrounding tissues.

Potential Causes of Broken Capillaries

Age, injuries, hormones, rosacea, excess sun exposure, weather changes, smoking, alcohol, genetics, an inactive lifestyle, vomiting and sneezing can all cause damage or dilation to blood vessels, making them appear more visible on the skin.

Client Testimonial: “I’d tried all sorts of treatments to get rid of my wrinkles and sagging skin particularly on my left cheek. Nothing has ever worked. Microneedling and caci being just 2 of those. When Jo told me of the collagen lift it was a last stop before a face lift. I am amazed at the results, I don’t focus on my wrinkles when I look in the mirror anymore as they aren’t noticeable! Jo has worked wonders on my skin and I will continue to have the treatment as it not only works but it isn’t painful like the others and it’s actually relaxing.”
