Q: I have reddish patches on my cheeks and nose.  Husband has a lot of broken blood vessels on his nose. It makes us look “weathered”, what can we do?

The good news is that your redness and broken capillaries can usually be cleared up quickly with an IPL treatment.

IPL or Intense Pulsated Light, uses light energy to zap and essentially cauterize, your broken blood vessels, closing off the tiny capillaries causing the redness. 

It is effective for tiny vessels that look like little streams as well as diffuse redness or ruddiness, as is found with rosacea.  By removing the redness, you will look healthier and younger due to a clear complexion.
