Can IPL be used on benign vascular lesions?
Ageing, exposure to the elements (especially the sun) and other factors can lead to broken capillaries and blood vessels on the face, a condition known as telangiectasias. Sometimes this manifests as spider veins. In other cases, broken capillaries result in a diffused redness in the skin known as erythema. Both conditions are a source of social embarrassment for many people, as is rosacea, another common skin condition characterised by diffused erythema. All respond well to treatment with IPL.
