RE: Best Laser For Broken Capillaries and Rosacea
The best laser to get rid of unwanted blood vessels on the face would be the Vbeam.
Every laser system relies on a specific wavelength to perform a specific function.
The Vbeam uses the 595nm wavelength, which is specialized for small blood vessels. In order to see great results, the laser energy needs to be absorbed by a particular target.
The 595nm will be absorbed in an excellent fashion by oxygenated hemoglobin. It will proceed to destroy the walls of the blood vessels. The body then breaks down this tissue and carries it away from your skin’s surface so that they are no longer visible.
Here is a patient who underwent a Vbeam treatment for chest Rosacea
Laser for Broken Capillaries and Rosacea
For Rosacea or general redness, you should look for the Cynosure V-star or Candela V-Beam. These are 585 nanometer wavelength.
The Fraxel will be useless for facial veins and redness. As you have stated, it will often make them worse. The EXCEL V by CUTERA will likely work well as it has the 532 and 1064 wavelengths.
Lasers are a Great Solution...in the right hands.
There are definitely new treatments available to help treat rosacea today so you're in luck.
Your doctor may suggest using a laser, the magic tool of the 21st century, but the use of the wrong tool in the "slightly less experienced hands" of a doctor who may be well meaning, but lacks the years of knowledge and skill to understand and truly treat your underlying problem, may lead you down a very expensive and unhappy rabbit hole. There is no cure, but with consistent use of the right
meds for you, use of sunscreens and possibly the use of lasers for some of the smaller blood vessels that may be bothersome your level of control can be more than satisfactory. Hope this helped!

Cutera Rosacea Red face
In Rosacea, we use the Cutera Nd:Yag for physical vessels that track along the surface of the skin. The Limelight IPL works for diffuse redness. Topical creams such as Finacea may also be helpful. Rosacea is an ongoing problem and you will need multiple treatments to get the redness under control. Then on a yearly basis, 1 or 2 treatments may be necessary to keep it under control. Fraxel sessions are not specific for Rosacea.
