The face, neck, chest, and legs are common areas that broken or enlarged blood vessels (rosacea, facial spider veins, angiomas) can develop.
red spots & blood vessels
Many men and women experience increased facial redness and visible blood vessels as they age. Common reasons for this frequent skin concern include rosacea, extensive sun exposure, or the natural aging process.
As a chronic skin condition, rosacea requires regular treatment to keep symptoms at bay. Fortunately, Jordan V. Wang, MD, MBE, MBA and his team of board-certified dermatologists offer a variety of rosacea treatments at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania in the greater Philadelphia area on the Main Line in Devon.
Whether you have a chronic condition like rosacea, unexplained redness, or visible blood vessels, we have an array of topical treatments, state-of-the-art lasers, and non-surgical procedures to target your concerns.
What are the treatments for broken blood vessels and redness?
Broken blood vessels often don’t respond well to topical treatments. That’s why Dr. Wang and his team of board-certified dermatologists offer expert laser treatments for broken vessels and facial redness.
what are angiomas and how are they treated?
An angioma is a benign (non-cancerous) collection of blood vessels that form a raised, red growth. There are two types of angiomas: cherry angiomas and spider angiomas. While cherry angiomas appear as bright red, circular bumps on the skin, spider angiomas are typically flatter and contain blood vessels that extend outward — like a spider web.
Treatments for Angiomas
Like most blood vessel conditions, spider and cherry angiomas require specialized laser treatments to remove them.
What treatments fix redness?
We use the VBeam® Prima laser to eliminate unwanted facial redness. Our board-certified dermatologists customize each patient’s treatment plan, though most individuals need approximately 3-4 treatments to see noticeable improvements.
What is poikiloderma and how is it treated?
Poikiloderma of Civatte is a skin condition that typically develops on the neck and chest from long-term sun exposure. The condition often appears as a collection of blood vessels surrounded by widespread redness and sun spots.
Treatments for Poikiloderma of Civatte
To treat Poikiloderma of Civatte, our dermatologists offer a variety of treatments, which often include a custom combination of specialized lasers.
what Is Telangiectasias and how is it treated?
Telangiectasias are enlargements of blood vessels that can develop anywhere on the body, but are most frequently found on the face. Several factors can cause telangiectasias, including:
- Hormonal therapy
- Sun exposure
- Certain underlying medical disorders
- Hereditary predisposition
These enlarged blood vessels take the form of red or purple vessels that resemble tiny lines on the skin. A reddish complexion often accompanies telangiectasias.
Treatments for Telangiectasias
In most instances, telangiectasias require laser treatment, as the condition rarely responds to topical solutions alone.
A number of laser devices can help to reduce the appearance of blood vessels and redness, but our board-certified dermatologists have seen the most significant improvement with the Vbeam® Prima laser. This new and powerful laser can eliminate unwanted blood vessels and redness.

red spots & blood vessels
Q: How Many Treatments Are Required?
A: Some blood vessels disappear very quickly and require only one or two treatment sessions. Other patients require multiple treatments to obtain the maximum benefit and sustained results.
Q: Are The Procedures Painful?
A: Typically most patients feel minor discomfort during the procedure. Our lasers generally use cooling devices to help minimize the pain. In some cases, we use topical cream anesthesia to minimize discomfort.
Q: What Will My Skin Look Like After Treatment?
A: The skin will appear somewhat redder after each treatment. In some instances, there can be some minor scabbing and/or bruising of the skin for a few days. Typically, make-up can be worn after each treatment session.
Q: Are These Procedures Covered By Insurance?
A: Laser treatment is oftentimes not considered medically necessary and consequently is not covered by insurance.
