Broken Blood Vessels

UPMC Content 3

Broken blood vessels can occur virtually anywhere on the body and most commonly are caused by aging, genetics, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, obesity, or injury. Like other vascular blemishes, such as rosacea or hemangiomas, V-Beam, Cynergy™, and CoolGlide® lasers are used to treat broken blood vessels.
