Why It Happens

Dilated capillaries are the result of genetics or skin trauma. Sensitive and acneic skin types are particularly susceptible to dilated capillaries because of a compromised barrier.

02

SPF. Every. Single. Day.

Sun exposure causes inflammation which can lead to dilated capillaries. Make SPF a daily habit.

Product Recommendation:

Image Skincare Prevention+ Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizer SPF 50

03

Add Vitamin C To Your Routine

This powerful antioxidant can prevent free radical damage—which may exacerbate this condition. Topical antioxidants are beneficial to anyone experiencing dilated capillaries, but especially smokers, as smoking leads to vitamin C depletion.

04

Use A Very Light Exfoliant

Since the skin is already sensitized, steer clear of manual exfoliants (such as harsh scrubs) to avoid irritating the skin further.

Product Recommendation:

Naturopathica Oat Cleansing Facial Polish

• FROM THE TREATMENT ROOM •

Both types of LED light we use for enhancements are beneficial for dilated capillaries, as blue light calms inflammation while red light stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
