Intense pulsed light therapy is the best way of eliminating redness and broken veins as it shrinks the blood vessels. With a few treatments, broken veins will disappear, improving the complexion. It can be carried out around the nose and on the cheeks, where this condition is prominent. The 30-minute treatment can also cover a large area and there is little downtime. The treatment feels like a hot bright light on the skin, similar to an elastic band pinging the skin. A course of up to six sessions is available and one every four weeks is recommended, but you may need a six-month maintenance treatment. From £80 a session.
