Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, broken capillaries don't fade away.  It can be treated with a laser to minimize the appearance. I would recommend wearing daily SPF 30 with zinc. I hope this helps.

A Jessner peel is unlikely to leave permanent capillaries.

You may have some redness following you Jessner peel.  It is unlikely that you would get permanent capillaries caused by a Jessner peel.  If you had photos taken before the peel, they may have already been present and now a a bit more visible with the post inflammatory erythema following the peel.  Check back with your doctor for advice.
