Permanent enlargement of facial capillaries (telangiectasia) is clinically characterized by small, dark red, skin-level or slightly raised, stellate or punctate lesions. Very common telangiectasias can be seen in rosacea, cirrhosis, liver cancer, thoracic tumors, AIDS and some other systemic diseases. Patients with an increase in capillaries on the face should avoid the sun and hot environments, and should not take tea, coffee, cigarettes, alcohol and spicy foods. Treatment of telangiectasias is possible with cauterization or laser.
Capillary enlargement (telangiectasia)
It is useful to check whether there is any circulation problem in the large veins in cardiovascular surgery before starting the laser treatment in people with capillary enlargement in other parts of the body, especially in the leg area. Capillaries can be closed with laser treatment, usually in 1 or 2 sessions. The interval between two sessions is 8 weeks. During applications, the skin should be protected from the sun.
