I am considering an ablative form of facial skin resurfacing, such as Fraxel Repair. However, in the past, the facial peels I've had (TCA) caused broken capillaries, which I had to have treated with a V beam laser. Will Fraxel Repair also cause broken capillaries?
Can Fraxel Repair Cause Broken Capillaries?

Actually, Fraxel re:pair is a treatment for broken capillaries
I have seen improvements in people who had the Fraxel re:pair in their telangectasias (visible capillaries). However, as Dr. Placik has said, there is a low potential to stimulate these. If they appear though, they can easily be treated with the V Beam.
