Cure broken capillaries naturally and look better with these natural treatments contributed by our readers! They have told us how they got rid of those red blotchy marks on their faces or legs with natural vein treatments. No one wants to have to try to hide them all the time.
What Causes Broken Capillaries (telangiectasia rosacea)?
Capillaries are small and fine, part of the circulatory system and connect veins and arteries. Capillaries 'job' is to exchange water, oxygen, nutrients, and waste between cell tissue and the circulatory system. (Arteries carry blood to the cells and back to the heart.) Capillaries are fragile and break when damaged, usually leaving those red blotchy marks we hate on faces and legs. Broken capillaries seldom fix themselves and require some form of spider vein treatment to remove them.
What NOT To Do -- Prevention is the Best Treatment!
- Don't wash your face too vigorously. Excessively hot water can also be damaging.
- Don't expose your skin to the sun too long and apply sunscreen.
- Don't drink too much alcohol. It can increase blood pressure and cause broken facial capillaries to dilate.
- Do -- Protect your face as much as possible -- an injury can cause broken capillaries and red blotches.

|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||100%|
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] I have seen near immediate temporary results with topical Arnica cream (100 mg Arnica montana 1x per gram) used at bedtime. Used at bedtime I see almost immediate results and wake with reduced appearance. I will be increasing to use post shower and/or daytime application for 2x per day. I was given the cream at a cosmetic facial clinic to treat facial bruising so figured it might help reduce the appearance of my capillaries. Age/sun/large busted?? My upper chest is getting broken capillaries. I'm a 54 post menopausal woman on topical HRT (Wiley). One area to place my hormones is my upper chest but have never applied them there.
[YEA] I just really wanted to share this info I have just discovered about myself. For the past 5 years I have had small broken capillaries on my chest that has spread to my face and even my arms, Its become quite embarressing. I am an avid red wine drinker. Pretty much my drink of choice , I spent a couple of weeks drinking beer instead and noticed my (spots) were a tad lighter, so I decided to give wine a break. It's now been a month and a half since I had a glass of wine. Major improvements! Apparently I'm allergic to the sulfites in wine, its a total self diagnosis but I can tell a major difference. I would recommend doing the research if you are having broken veins. One of the 1st reactions of people with a sulfite allergy is irritated skin. I truely believe this is my culprit. It's a bummer because I love my wine! There are sulfite free wines out there that I am soon going to try!
[YEA] I have small broken capillaries all over my face and very pale skin. I never got excited until I got a rather large one on the side of my nose that was almost purple in color. I started using coconut oil on my face at a friend's suggestion as a moisturizer and for it's antibacterial quality for my pre-menopausal acne. It has helped tremendously with my acne, but I noticed my broken capillary on the side of my nose is almost gone after just a few applications. It is just a pale thin red now!

Approval Ratings YEA (2) 100% Posted by Afitch (Colorado Springs, Co, USA) on 06/07/2012
[YEA] I was diagnosed with small vessel capilaritis - red spots on my legs that look like pupura. They would appear almost on a daily basis and take a week to fully heal and fade away. I went to 12 doctors and no one could tell me what to do for them. I found an article on the internet that suggested that oligomeric procyanidins OPCs have shown to improve capillary vessel strength.
I have been taking grape seed extract supplements (from the local health food store) for about two years now and have virtually no capilaritis now. I want to share this with people because it seems that most doctors do not know of anything you can for this condition. These grape seed supplements have helped me greatly. AndyReplied by Casafina
