Broken blood vessels around the nose can affect your looks and make you look olderbroken blood vessel than you really are. Thanks to an innovative treatment called the Cutera Excel V Laser, broken blood vessels can go away after just a few appointments with a dermatologist at Affiliated Dermatologists in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.

What Causes Broken Blood Vessels?
When the blood vessels on the face become more pronounced, red, and swollen they’re called “broken vessels.” It is an issue that commonly shows up  around  the nose or eyes. It can be caused by any of the following:

- Overexposure to the sun over a period of time.
- Allergic reactions.
- Having a cold and blowing the nose too much.
- A systemic medical condition like lupus.
- Skin conditions like rosacea.
- Heredity (this may be more common in people with a certain genetic background).
- The basic process of aging.

The Cutera Excel V Laser
As natural as broken blood vessels may be, many patients don’t want to live with them for cosmetic reasons. The Cutera Excel V Laser is a small handheld device that is waved over the affected area. A laser beam emits waves of energy to reduce the appearance of red veins around the nose. Cutera addresses both vascular problems of the skin and problems with pigmentation. 

Small Investment; Significant Results
Cutera treatments require a small investment in money and time compared to the great results you’ll achieve. Many patients see improvement after just a few sessions, which takes a matter of minutes for each appointment. You can relax knowing that you’ll have a comfortable experience—the Cutera wand includes a special mechanism that protects and cools your skin during the session.
